If you read enough personal finance advice online, you have definitely read before that bringing your own packed lunches to work will save you money. We have talked about this before, and so have many other money advice blogs.
But how much money exactly can that save you? We’ll we’ve done the maths for you, and you’ll be surprised!
Yes, that is right. You can save more than £60k over your working life just by bringing a packed lunch and skipping the coffee shop. And the truth is many people spend more than this on lunch, coffee and snacks every day, so this amount can be even higher if you are one of them.
That’s money to put towards your mortgage, a pension or even that dream home in the sun for when you retire. Think about it!
