"I ate $1 pizza every day for months just so I can afford to take this girl out every week"
I've got a dollar pizza joint near my office that makes a surprisingly good slice. I've sometimes considered eating there for lunch every day, which would save me about a hundred dollars a month. But I decided against it for two reasons: I'd get sick of pizza, and I'd get fat.
If you really need to save money on lunch, we suggest packing your own lunch -- cold cuts aren't that expensive, and a batch of chili or rice and beans can go a long way.
