I’m giving your disordered eating thoughts a big hug to let them know it’s OK to be scared of food, but food still needs to be eaten so they are heard but need to let you bring bigger portions. Or a second lunch, if a second lunch is less scary than a bigger lunch.
@Elle that SUCKS that you have nowhere warm at either workplace to eat your lunch! I would eat at the cafe with their food in that instance and call it partially an expense of working at those locations on those days.
I’ve decided buying the little $3 yoghurt tubs is cheaper than DH buying a $7 or $10 breakfast (coffee+snack) on days when we need to Just Get Out The Door. Combining this with getting better at packing both of our lunches (he can learn to pack his own some other time, after we get the "WHAT are we packing for lunch? question sorted), I should actually start to see a decrease in our spending! Assess habits first, work within those habits to reduce spending second. Better than going hungry because ideal frugality isn’t practical.
