So what am I doing to change my habits? I'm engaging in a Fast Food Spending Fast. I'm going to do my very best not to buy any fast food (especially during week days). I don't mind spending money on food when going out with friends, but I'm putting the nix on weekday I'm-eating-it-because-I'm-lazy fast food spending.
How am I going to accomplish that you ask?...well, I've made you a list!
1. Make sure to have easily packable food in the house. Lack of this is usually not the problem, but it is essential.
2. Put away leftovers properly so that they may be used for lunch the next day.
3. If not packing the night before, at least plan in your head what you're going to pack the next day.
4. Just do it. So many times I take an extra five minutes to sit around in my pajamas when I could be doing something productive, and those five little minutes cost $5 - $1- (depending on what I buy for lunch).
I have a million and one excuses for not packing my lunch more regularly, but they all suck. It literally takes less than five minutes and will literally save me lots of money!
