Problems with bringing lunch to work
- The social aspects of going out to lunch with my work friends.
- I truly believe that my sanity is being saved by getting out of the office at lunch.
I have tried on numerous occasions to start bringing my lunch to work to save some money, but it has always ended in failure. For starters, when I bring my lunch in, I generally end up sitting in my office eating it, while everyone else still goes out to lunch. I feel as though I miss so much when I do not go out with them. Then there is also the problem of sitting at my desk and eating my lunch taking much less time than if I went out to lunch. It just makes the day seem so much longer because I do not get out of the office and I only take about a 15 minute lunch.
What do other young professionals think? Are you good about bringing your lunch in or do you view going out to lunch as a necessary expense?
