Another money saving lunch idea

Another money saving lunch idea.

If you happen to decide to splurge and either go out for dinner or just order out, remember that you have to pack your lunch for work tomorrow.

What I mean is, when you decide what you want, many places will increase the amount of food you get for just a little bit more in price.

The extra quantities they give you are usually well worth the increase over the normal priced selections and usually more food than most people will eat.

So just remember when ordering that you want leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch and order the larger portions. Then when your meal comes simply ask for a carry out container and split it right there into two servings. Or if it was delivered simply split it at home yourself.

Now you have your lunch all set for the next day and remember, this works for each family memember equally as well and ends up being quite a money8 savings and a tasty lunch las well!

My personal favorite food to pickup and pack the leftovers for the next day is KFC ! A couple three pieces of chicken, some coleslaw and a biscuit or two is one of the best lunches that I treat myself to. Gosh I love that tasty chicken skin, there isn’t anything better in the whole world, Yummy!

Kids love it to!


Fast food wants your money!

Fast food wants your money!

We as hard working men and women deserve a good lunch in the mid part of our day, to rejuvenate the brain cells and muscles and get us through to quitting time.

Did you notice that I said quitting time! If you didn’t and you don’t consider yourself what I call a working stiff just trying to make a living than you probably do not need to read any farther.

But in the real world the rest of us need to watch the fast food market as they ramp up their push to bad mouth our home made lunches by using negative feelings on us!

You’ve all seen the commercials that have the main group comparing their lunch from somewhere, discussing the value, taste, size, and anything else they can think of. Then they ask their coworker who is sitting alone, what they are eating, and that is where they make you feel like an outcast. Like your lunch is not as good as theirs is.

DON’T FALL FOR THIS TYPE OF ADVERTISING! It’s really not a very reputable way to get someone to try their products in the first place, so don’t fall for it.

There is nothing wrong with bringing your own lunch and saving a ton of money over those who eat out daily.

And some of the food that people do bring in those home made lunches, a lot of times not only tops fast food in taste, but most certainly will top fast food in value, darn near every time. They can’t compete price wise with a home made meal, no how, no way, and they know it.

Just be creative, use thermoses, hot and cold carry jars, along with plenty of reusable plastic bowls and containers and by all means, be creative!

Search the Web for carry lunch ideas, along with ideas of cooking lunch depending on your job.
By all means use anything that your place of employment provides you for lunches, like microwaves, tables, plastic dinnerware, refrigerators, etc. Also, be careful never to contaminate your food, but use tools of the trade as well if you can. Ovens, torches, boilers heaters, chillers, coolers and a.c. units can all be utilized to warm or cool a tasty item so it’s ready at lunch time.

Now do yourself a favor, if you ever afford to buy something that a coworker says they wish they could afford, tell them you could afford it because of the money you saved by bringing your lunch!

Oh just a couple more things, don’t forget the condiments and never forget to pack the silverware! You’d look kinda silly drinking your home made stew or eating chocolate pudding with your finger!

Art Van Steps Up

Art Van made a one million dollar donation to the Forgotten Harvest food bank.

Sure they are big business but just remember this.

Moneys Tight, times are tough and even though they will probably write it off, THEY DIDN’T HAVE TO DO IT AT ALL!

Thanks Art Van for being one big business that understands that
there is more too being rich than greed.

The holidays and cold weather are closing in. Many are hungry, but now they will eat, thanks to you.



Stereos to fit the Budget, From Micro to Mini.

Yes, when times are tough and the family gets a little restless for something to do, turning on the stereo system is always a fun way to pass some otherwise mundane times.

It will lift your spirits whether it’s a Micro or a Mini Hifi from Panasonic, Sony, or Philips, to a rocking Ipod Docking system from Roberts or Intempo.

If you are in need of a new stereo system, one that will fit your budget and help you calm the troops is just a click away, with top models and brands to choose from. So happy shopping and listening and could you please turn it up a little, that’s my favorite tune!


OMG! Un-believable …Yet Again there go more rights.

April 29, 2010 at 6:09 AM | #1

OMG! Un-believable …Yet Again there go more rights. In Santa Clara County in California they are trying to get a bill passed that bans fast food restaurants from putting toys in kids meals.

The toys are not what makes our children “obese”, it’s what they put in their mouths. And for the Lawmakers or Government to tells us, yet again, not to feed our children fast food, is ridiculous. Sure fried foods aren’t good for our children or us, however, it is our “right” as parents and adults to monitor what our children consume. We as parents have to decide what choices our children pick to eat. There are some healthy items on the menus of fast food restaurants. We as parents have to discipline ourselves to help our children to make the right food choices. It is NOT up to the government to step in again.

They (the government) already have stepped in too much, “for our own good” to “help” us with our children. Personally, I think it should be up to the parents, not only on what we feed our children but also how we discipline them. Enough is Enough, tell Government to STOP!
