Lunch On a Budget

According to Top Dollar, a survey by Visa shows that Americans spend $2,746 on lunch annually. That works out to an average of $53 a week. Please note that the survey reported on "lunch," which could mean several things, including sack lunch, going home, fast food, or dining out. Hold on, it gets worse. According to the same report, those who ate out frequently were spending $9,000 a year or more on lunch.

So let's take the amount of $53 a week, and assume you're working a five-day workweek. With that, we have a daily lunch budget of $10 and change. Where are you going with your $10 bill?
