Every since I started this new job, I find it harder and harder to bring my lunch. (I guess not technically bring it, but eat it). At my last job, I was approximately 2 miles away from home. That was perfect! I got to leave the office, let my dogs out and eat lunch, all in the quiet space of my/or my bf's home. That is no longer the case. I now have a 12 mile commute to work, making it impractical (and almost impossible with only one hour) to go home for lunch. I have been attempting to bring my lunch with me to work, but let's face it...that sucks. Not so much the food, but the part about never leaving the office. I just cannot stay in my office and not take a little break from work. So, instead I have been going to lunch with my boss & co-workers. I know this is going to start getting rather expensive, that's where you all come in - what can I do to make bringing my lunch and staying at the office a better option? As sad as it is to say, the savings is not enough motivation.
