I love eating out. Growing up, we eat out more than we ate in, at least, that’s how I remember it. As a result, I would always go out to eat for lunch. Last year, Amanda started making me a lunch most days. Its amazing how much one can spend on lunch each day. I found a nifty little calculator over at BankRate.com and, based on my guestaments, I’m guessing the Wife has saved us at least $700.00 so far. Go Wifey! 🙂 The longer I take lunch with me, of course, the more that will increase.
To arrive at my figures, I used the cost of $5.00 for lunch eating out, verses $2.00 taking it with me, for 1 year, with a 3% return on my money.
What do you guys think? Do you take lunch with you to work? Do you eat out? If $700.00 worth the time and effort the Wife puts into it? Do I have the best wife in the world?
