When I decided to do a "No spend on anything but essentials" month (have a look here at the Cheapskates website for more detail) I knew I was going to have get my lunches sorted for once and for all.
Here's what I did...
Green-ness: 5/5 for recycling and not supporting large corporations!
Frugal-ness: 5/5 for not spending money on food when there is plenty in the house.
Time cost: 20 minutes for the basics. Maybe forty five minutes if I'm doing a double batch of muffins or a cake as well.
Skill level: Planning and organisation!
Fun-ness: Great fun knowing you can spend an extra few minutes reading, having a cuppa with the chickens or chatting to the neighbour in the mornings and still save money and eat well!
