I'm at the office everyday, and just don't care to go out.  We have a great cafeteria in our building; however, I prefer to bring something from home.

Yes, I love good deli food, but cost, time and health takes my back to my roots.  My mother, who grew up on farm during the Great Depression, made us pack our brown bag lunch everyday in high school rather than eat in school cafeteria.  Old traditions still apply today.  Even when Dave & I travel we brown bag for lunch and treat ourselves for dinner out when we arrive at our destination

I've never brown-bagged in my life. My office is in my house and when I want to eat, I walk over to the kitchen... when I worked in the corporate world, there was always a good cafeteria on the premises that cost less than brown-bagging. Of course, I virtually never eat lunch unless I have a lunch date and even in the corporate world rarely had more than a cup of soup unless I had a lunch appointment with one of our bankers.

If I go to my office, I always take my lunch with me.  I look at time as an opportunity cost, if spent somewhere, it must be given up somewhere else.  I would rather spend that time at home, after work with my family.....besides its cheaper and usually healthy.
