How To Make A Cheap And Delicious Sandwich For Work
- Video by Mariya Pylayev

According to Visa, the average American spends more than $900 a year going out to lunch. And that means that if you can manage to start packing your own lunch when you go to work, you can save a ton of money that you would have otherwise spent at Au Bon Pain, Subway or wherever else you go for your noontime meal

Most people know this, just as they know they're spending too much on lattes or parking tickets or whatever else happens to be busting their budget. But if you're like me, there's one thing keeping you from packing your own lunch: The sandwiches and soups you make at home just don't compare to the ones you get at your local deli. You know that a homemade sandwich costs a lot less than a store-bought one, but you're tasting the difference.

So to help you break out of your turkey-and-cheese rut, we turned to food blogger Cara Eisenpress of Big Girls, Small Kitchen. Cara showed us how to use relatively cheap ingredients to create simple and cheap sandwiches that nevertheless taste just as good -- or better -- than anything you'd get from your local sub shop.
