How often do you pack your lunch? What do you usually bring?

How often do you eat out for lunch? Do you have a favorite place to buy your lunch?

I pack more than I buy. I am not a big sandwich eater so I usually bring leftovers from the night before. Sometimes I'll pack a bagel with cream cheese, cereal or soup. I work in a high school so I don't get to leave for lunch, if I buy it's from the cafeteria.

I used to buy lunch every day. Now my budget has become a lot tighter and i've been packing. I've been clearing out whatever old stuff we've had. Easy Mac, Uncrustables, whatever I can find basically to save on money and not waste whatever we already have. :)

I buy way too much. I really need to start packing more often, but I seriously HATE my kitchen. I avoid working in it at all cost, which is such a bummer because I LOVE LOVE LOVE to cook. 

I am moving in two months, and having a functional kitchen is my top priority!

i pack it mostly every day. i only buy one when i'm running late or forgot to bring my lunch for some reason.

usually i pack deli ham, cheese, an avocado, a banana, and occasionally some sun chips. 

when i buy, i usually go to wendy's - it's the closest and most convenient to my office.

I'm way too much of a cheapskate to buy my lunch out every day. Usually I bring leftovers, or a huge chef salad, and then go to the gym. I get an hour for lunch and live 5 minutes from work, so I sometimes go home and eat, do errands. Once in a while DH and I will go out together for a lunch date, but mostly I eat at work, especially on busy days.

My husband & I always pack, never buy. Except on Tuesdays, then he gets 99 cent chicken from Popeye's. lol. Yeah, we're cheap.

I pack everyday. I can't leave for lunch so if I don't bring something I'm stuck eating crapy sodium filled school lunches.

I pack everyday. I can't leave after I get to work so unless I order something that's delivered I'm stuck with what I brought lol. I usually bring leftovers or a salad. Every once in a while one of the ladies that works in my building will offer to pick something up for me when she goes out which is nice. Last time she did we had some really good Chinese take out.

I bring my lunch everyday, usually leftovers, sometimes a sandwich.  On occassion i'll join co-workers and go out and eat, but that's probably about once a month.
