I usually work through lunch and eat crackers and coke from the office fountain machine. So, I'm spending very little, but I indulge sometimes and eat out. I'm craving Moe's Southwestern nachos for dinner. My husband starts law school in 2 weeks so I feel I should be economical, but string cheese and organic enchiladas are getting old!!

last summer while I was working and wasn't thinking about applying to law school, I think I spent around $6-8 a day on lunch. We get stuff delivered to the office, so one day I might have had a salad, and another day a turkey club--or something along those lines. I try to stay away from beef for lunch though, it makes me tired and groggy.

this summer, after having finalized my 1L budget, I've been going home every day to eat leftovers for lunch.

I think pickles are cucumbers that sold out. They sold their soul to the devil, and the devil is dill...

I'm sure this has been answered other places, but Zap where are you going to law school? Yeah, I'm losing weight like a bandit these days from stress and not eating. Woo hoo!!

I typically get this pasta salad from Bertucci's. It's the greatest. It's not on their menu, but they give it to me anyway for $1.99 and of course it comes w/ rolls and butter.

Oh, I dunno... 25-50 cents for a box of mac and cheese.  Make up a big pot once a week and warm it up every day at work.  Heat up a hot dog.  I might have about 40 cents in my daily lunch, once you count in buns and the milk/butter/etc going into the mac and cheese, if that.  And somehow, it gets the job done and keeps me going.

But to say I'm thrifty is an understatement.  I'm gonna be filthy rich when I get out of law school, because I'm just not going to spend what I make!  Right now I save about half my monthly salary, and I only make about 10 bucks an hour.  If that tells you anything about how I spend money.  And somehow I've still managed to acquire several new musical instruments over the past few months.  It's all about priorities.

Wow, that's pretty frugal.  I thought I was doing well, I probably average about $3-4 (Canadian) per day.
