Lunch Challange -anyone want to join me in June?

May 26th, 2010 at 10:06 am

Of the 3 of us doing the work lunch challange, one backed out halfway through the month and my other coworker is doing better than me! And thats becuase I didn't pack enough & ended up getting an extra snack or soda on 2 occasions. Still within the parameters of the challange, but I really wanted to do better.

So next month, I'm doing another challange. Is anyone interested in joining in? I'm sure some of you already do this pretty regularly, but its something I struggle with and I find it kinda fun to challange myself.

Here are the rules:

1. You can set any rules for yourself, just try to pack food a majority of the time. If you want $1/day for extras or to have 4 freebie days, thats cool. The goal is to save some money!

2. This is just for fun, so if you fall off the wagon... just get back on track if you want Smile

So for me, for June: There are 22 work days. I plan on packing breakfast, lunch & snax 21 of them, with NO spending at all on additional items.

Please comment if you'd like to join me and each week we can update how we did. I know this is a bit early, since Jun doesnt start til next Tues, but that just gives us time to plan our meals!

    Sure. I always pack a lunch/snacks, but generally allow once a week for a treat, or more likely, lunch with a friend or with dh (no kids!).

    I've got 20 works days - will probably 4 lunches - so will aim for 16 "no-spend" days.

    Meant to say - "will buy 4 lunches."

    I will take that challenge. My rules are to pack lunch nearly every day, including snacks, bottled water, and tea bags. I will allow myself four work days during the month to go out for lunch and also $2.00 per day to buy a glass of iced tea.

    I'll join you. I work a 4 day week so I will aim to have 16 no-spend days. I always bring lunch with me to work anyway, it's just the extras that I end up buying - there's a vending machine at work and I usually end up buying chocolate or crisps.

    I have faithfully brought my lunch/snacks 99.9% of the time over the past 10+ years. Big Grin
    Best of luck with your challenge!

    I will join you too. Of course, I don't work so it will be easier for me. But I promise to try and eat lunch at home every day.
