So I finally realized that I was spending too much on my daily Subway lunches. My meal was $7.53 every day, which included a double-meat turkey wrap, apples, and a diet coke. That works out to $37.65 per week and $150 per month. Needless to say, thats a lot of dough (but not really since I get the wrap- haha okay not funny).
This week I realized that I could probably make the same lunch by myself for much less. I went to the grocery store and bought turkey, tortilla wraps, a bag of pre-shredded lettuce (yes!), some condiments including jared tomatoes, olives, and peppercionis. It turns out that I bought two weeks of supplies for $20. (Not including soda, which is cost negligible anyway.) The way I look at it, thats a savings of over a hundred bucks a month. I can think of a lot of better things to do with that money - like go out to a decent restaurant once a week.
I'm sure we all have some inefficient or cost-ineffective things we do on a daily basis that can be easily changed for the better.
