SAVE MONEY, HONEY!
If the staff at MacD’s or Subway knows you by name — we shouldn’t have to be the ones to tell you it’s time to stop feeling special — you need to break the habit of eating out. And, don’t forget to plug that bleeding hole in your pocket while you’re at it! We know that calling for lunch is easy, and it saves you the trouble of having to cook a meal for yourself every day, but get this: a Rs 100 burger might seem like a small expense, but the effect of eating out is financially cumulative and you can end up spending a sizeable chunk of your salary on food. A chunk that you could easily be saving! So go ahead and pick from our snazzy options and you’ll be the talk of the office cubicles.
