Brown Bagging it
By Cathy Pearl

1     Even after you get your first job, you may not have a lot of money. One of the best ways to save some money is to take your lunch to work with you. This will be a lot cheaper than buying your lunch.
2     One of the things that a lot of adults bring in their lunches is leftovers. Cook a little extra the night before and save it for your lunch. If you go out to dinner, bring the part you don't eat home. Or if you are visiting your parents, bring home some of that home cooking.
3     Sandwiches are easy to make and easy to take. Everyone has nightmares about all the peanut butter and jelly they ate when they were children. But you are an adult now; you don't need to eat this all the time. Try chicken, turkey breast, or tuna fish. Try different mustards or use rolls instead of bread. The only thing that limits what you make is what you like. But don't be afraid to try something new.
4     If there is a microwave where you work, there are many other things that you can take for your lunch. Soup is one of those things. Take a dish that you can use in the microwave to heat it up. The microwave is also a great way to heat up some of those leftovers.
5     Salads are also excellent for lunch. Don't think that a salad just has to be healthy. Spice it up with colorful fruits and vegetables or a tasty dressing. Don't drown the salad in dressing. Throw in some chicken or tuna. Nuts are also great on salads. A little cheese on the top will gave you a salad you will love.
