I've Been A Bad Dolly
Since I've worked at the pharmacy I've been a very bad Dolly when it comes to packing lunches. I used to be such a great lunch packer. Why is that?
Previously everywhere I've worked did not allow me the option of buying a lunch. I basically had to bring one or starve. It really motivated me to be on top of having food at home that would pack easily. Now... I never make the extra effort and its costing me big time!
Its been eating away at me how much I've been spending on food. At a time where I'm deciding to take hold of my health and finances I'm ruining it all by eating out every day. I'm going to be honest, I am spending more than just lunch money. I also usually by a smoothie in the morning, and some snacks at work. This is on top of buying lunch. I don't even want to guesstimate the amount I spend monthly. I know I should and stop putting blinders on but I'm so angry at myself.
Part of it is an attachment to the people working where I buy these things. I love the food court ladies and I'm sure they love me and the dollar signs above my head. I've worked in this particular mall a few times in the past so I know other workers very well and I like the social interaction.
Another big part is laziness, and being unprepared. Oh, and then there's the fact that work is stressful and sometimes I just want to get the F out of there and relax. Sometimes I even eat before work because I was rushed getting out the door and the bus causes me to be a half hour early.
Things have got to change. I'm wasting money in a big way at a fast rate. This is going to be one of my goals for February. It's time to get back on track.
