Lunch Ideas

December 10th, 2008 at 10:09 am

To keep up with my goal, I have started to bring my own lunch figuring every little bit will help towards saving for down payment. I have been eating ham sandwich with cheese and butter or a week now, and frankly I could do without looking at one for a long time. Do you have any other interesting sandwich ideas? Or any other kind of lunch idea. (Not leftovers though) Thanks!

    What do you have access to? Do you have a microwave? Or a thermos? Fridge, freezer?

    Soup is great during the winter. If no leftovers then I would suggest frozen entrees at $.99 for a small one up to $2.00 large or $.69 for a pot pie it is still way cheaper than eating out!

    Alternate a variety of sandwiches that you like. Or as CouponAddict suggests, buy some frozen dinners, etc.

    I agree. If you have access to a freezer, buy frozen things all at once and keep them at the office. if you bring one each day, you might not feel like eating that by the time lunch rolls around and you then have an excuse to eat out(or at least I would!)

    lol, if you want to get really cheap, noodles?
    i have a salad and cheese pita wrap sometimes. if you eat meat i could suggest baking a couple of chicken breasts on monday to keep in the fridge and using it in a salad, then in a sandwhich or wrap etc the enxt day.
    I used to make quiches for my BF - you can make them in muffin tins with puff pastry, add the chopped vegetables and cheese you want and then pour over a mix of 6 eggs - 1 cup milk. bake them and then individually wrap and freeze them and then take them out each day for lunch. if you dont have an oven or microwave they should be defrosted anyway by lunch time.

    can i ask, why no leftovers???

  6. smartypants Says:

    I like to have my leftovers for dinner because I work full time and am in graduate school. So it's easier for me to just heat up the leftovers for dinner. If I was to bring it for lunch also, it would be a very boring repeat. For lunch, I like to have simple things that does not need heating, warming, cooking etc. I do have a thermos. No kitchen at work. We do have a fridge though.

    Turkey sandwich, ham sandwich, liverworest (any type of lunch meat)

    Tuna sandwich (can be made right there if you have a can opener or the easy open kind and a small plastic container to hold the mayo or salad dressing.)

    Eggsalad sandwich, BLT, sloppy joes.

    Soup in a thermos (tons of options at the store just warm at home pop in thermos before work and your golden)

    Too bad they wont spring for a microwave then the options could be endless.

    Buy some pita breads or flat breads and have some chicken and ranch with shredded cheese. Microwave and enjoy.
