Math Question: (hopefully my math is not too far off)

Let's say you spent $7.00 a day on lunch x 5 days a week =
$35.
Let's take away 2 weeks of vacation, that leaves us working
50 weeks a year.

$35.00 a week for lunch x 50 work weeks =
$1750 a year on lunch.

Let's say if you brought your lunch from home it only cost you
$10.00 a week x 50 weeks = $500.00

So if we take our eat out money .......$1750
Minus the cost of lunch from home......-$500

That means we save .................$1250.00 per year.
So here is the question...what would YOU do with the extra $1250 per year?

Depending on what my finances are when I do have something extra dictates what I do.

But usually I save - especially since being laid off in 2008 for the third time.

When I was working in my usual 9 to 5 job - I would "splurge" every year when I received my tax return as I know there would be a paycheck in the future. As I got older, I learn't not to splurge the entire tax return but save some. LOL, now that I can no longer use my only child as a "tax" break option - breaking even is all I ask for these days = do not have to pay Uncle Sam anything - yipppeeee...

Bottom line, we all need to REWARD ourselves when our efforts pay off in saving something. But using wisdom on what to use the "leftovers" on is what life is all about smile

Set it aside even if I had a job. You never know when an emergency is going to happen and if it does not then with your savings you can buy yourself something you want or go on a vacation or just keep it as savings.
