In my quest to stick to a food budget, I’ve found that lunch is my downfall. I have some inexpensive breakfast ideas that get me out of bed in the morning (homemade muffins! Eggs!) and dinner is a place I’m now in the groove with for meal planning, but for some reason it’s hard for me to break the habit of going out to lunch when I’m at the office. Those fancy New York lunch salads add up, and I know I need to make a change if I want to really stick to a budget.
That’s why I was so excited today when our friends at Cup of Jo posted an ingenious idea for a $2 lunch. If that wasn’t already exciting enough, it just so happens that the base of the lunch comes from Trader Joe’s.
