    If clients are in town...I don't spend anything..but the company does

    Generally though, by myself, if I grab something to eat..it's usually around $5.

    I spend about $5- $7 generally unless of course I go coupon crazy. Once in a while I'll get a freebie day where coupons magically turn things to size

    I selected $2-3. Even when taking the exchange rate into account (£1.25-£1.90) it's still accurate.

    I don't really believe in spending big on lunch, unless I'm out with friends/colleagues. Then it's usually whichever bar/pub has the cheapest deals on - and so normally comes to less than £5.

    $4 to $6 when I eat out. If I make my lunch it can be as cheap as $0.30 for a cup noodles... or if I'm really desperate $0.10 for top ramen.

    Subway or Lenny's.
    Will run you around $10.

    Arby's is good too.
    I could save money and bring something to the office but even if I hide, someone finds me and needs help while I'm eating.
    Best to just leave.

    Probably average about $6 a day, sometimes upwards of $10 a day. I went a couple of weeks with taking my lunch all the time and it was awesome, but it's so friggin' time consuming to prepare unless I have leftovers! Money is getting tight so we might have to start doing it again. It's definitely frustrating to me buying lunch every day when I have food at home that I've already paid for and could prepare for nothing extra. If I weren't so lazy

    I work in central London.. if you came with $3.. you'd get a bottle of water and you're on your way!

    I spend about £10 a day, not just on lunch - lunch is about £6..

    Chicken Piri Piri with Toasted Ciabatta, some wheat crunchies and Fruit Punch for £5.50 usually does the trick for me.

    My current employer subsidises our lunches. Therefore my 2 or 3 course meal with a drink costs me £2 (~$3.25)

    about $25/day (Me, fiance, and tip), I go to a Mexican restaurant everyday for lunch. Nice to be able to go with her everyday.. will be changed in a few years when we're done with school.

    Hi,

    Nothing to 1$, either I skip or it's a self-prepped sandwich. I usually eat only in the evening.

    If you dont mind me asking how much do you weigh? From what i know that's very unhealthy for your body.

    I am also a $7+ spender on lunch. I usually end up skipping breakfast cause of always running late, so lunch is usually my first meal of the day. I don't however eat a lot, and most of my lunch normally makes its way to the trash can. Eating multiple meals throughout the day in small portions is the way to go

    My weight you ask? 150 pounds...

    Skipping breakfast isnt a great idea but not everyone eat's healthy but it's great to see you eat multiple meals throughtout the day as they are small portions. You weigh 150? How tall are you. I feel fat i weight 240 lbs and im 6'3.

    I usually spent under $15 on my own lunch unless I'm with friends. I treat them.
