Eating on the Go
It seems like we are much busier now that we are retired than we ever were when we had regular jobs. On most days, we leave the house in the morning and don't get back until after dinner time. In order to save money (and save our health--eating out all the time is not good for you!) we usually pack up food and drinks at home each morning and bring them with us. On some days this might include breakfast, lunch AND dinner!
I can't recommend highly enough a small cooler (we freeze water bottles of ice to use in the cooler), some containers from the $1 Store (sandwich size, salad size), and Contigo insulated bottles (these will literally keep ice solid for 24 hours and coffee hot for about the same amount of time--we've tested it!).
We usually take hot drinks or cold drinks, sometimes bottled water, and sandwiches, wraps, leftovers, salads, etc. This is a great way to save money plus eat healthier than we would be able to if we had to eat out a couple times a day.
