Win a $25 Amazon Gift Card: Bring Your Lunch Contest
It’s been almost two years since I wrote about my boring lunches and how much money they save me. It was a couple of years ago, but at the time I had saved $2,000 in three years.
One thing still hasn’t changed: I still take the same lunch to work every week. That’s five years of eating the same thing for lunch about 95% of the time.
People at work have caught on and ask me all the time:
Don’t you get bored?
Until recently, the answer has always been “No.” I was proud to call myself boring when it came to my lunches—I even created The Boring Challenge over at Wisebread.
But today I have to admit: I’ve finally gotten bored and I’m doing something about it.
The Bring Your Lunch Contest
What is it?
It’s a contest to see if anyone can come up with a cheaper, tastier replacement for my current lunches. The winner gets a $25 Amazon Gift card and the honor of having me eat the winning entry for at least a week.
How to enter:
All you have to do is
- Follow @thewriterscoin on Twitter
- Tweet this: Just entered the Bring Your Lunch Contest @thewriterscoin
- Leave a comment on this post with your entry of a cheap, tasty lunch.
I will select the winner on Friday, January 21.
You must include how much it costs to eat your lunch for a week. If you want to email me an image, so much the better!
For example, here is what you have to beat: my current lunch.
Salami and cheese sandwich on 100% whole-wheat bread (split with wife). Eight slices of salami and two to three of cheese per sandwich.
Jewel-brand cheese: $2.99
Hilshire Farm Hard Salami: $3.00
Half of a loaf of 100% whole-wheat bread: $2.00
Total cost: $7.99/week.
