My attempts at meal prep have been a waste of money.
And then I pack my lunch bag for work and already nothing that I make sounds good anymore. I go to work, put my lunch in the fridge and spend the morning thinking that Qdoba sounds really good, or one of the bazillion other fast food places around my job. So I end up not eating what I brought (so wasting that money because my lunch is not gonna get eaten) and then spending $10 at Qdoba on food that I don't really need. So by the end of the week I am broke because I spent all my allowance on fast food and I've basically wasted all my groceries because that food isn't going to last.
I will say that I did a lot better last week than I had done in the week before that. I went out to eat less and ate more of my food I made instead. All of that being said I don't think I do this whole meal prep thing correctly. So my new plan is that I'm going to make less food and I'm going to allow myself to eat out maybe twice a week.
I'm definitely in need of some help with this topic.
