Benefits of packing your lunch

I listened in to a teleseminar this morning that featured Jim Beverly sharing financial planning advice for young PR professionals, sponsored by PRSA. Although it was targeted to new pros in the PR industry most of his advice could easily be applied to anyone just starting off on their first job.

He directed us to The Nest for some great tips on finances and budgeting, check it out! While I was reading the site today I found an amazing statistic: The average working professional spends nearly $1500 on restaurant and fast food lunch.

I'm trying to pack my lunch at least four days per week to save some money and ensure I'm eating healthy. It's challenging to force yourself to pack a lunch before heading off to work, but I challenge you to try! At my house it works best to make it the night before.
