Instead of paying twice as much for a restaurant chain (Blimpie, Subway, etc.) sandwich go to your nearest super market. Most of the time you are guaranteed to a cheaper, doubly stuffed, sandwich, not to mention the all in all better quality. With the money you have saved go to the bakery and choose from many varieties of cookies, cakes, etc.
If you get thirsty, purchase a soda outside of the store where they usually have a generic brand soda machine. It tastes as good as Coke or Pepsi and rarely costs more then a quarter. Now with all the money you saved on lunch today, go by yourself something pretty!
Better yet get your soda at Dollar Tree. Always a dollar. That's what I do because if I buy a 6 packs, etc I'll drink one every day.
When I worked in a strip mall I went to the grocery store in the shopping center (if I had time to get in and out) for lunch. Some great things you can get: A greek yogurt, a salad, a tea, a string cheese, etc.
