Loyal3 Lunch

How many lunches?

If you haven't been following this series, I'm trying to break my habit of eating out at lunch for no good reason.  Each day I bring my lunch gives me $5.00 to invest in stock with Loyal3, an online commission-free broker. This week should remind me to meal plan.  Tuesday I had an errand to run at lunchtime and drove through a favorite fast food place; by Friday I was sick of grilled cheese sandwiches and there was nothing else in the fridge.  This week I got $15.00 to invest.

Which Stock?

Retire Before Dad has a list of Loyal3 stocks (they sell a very limited number) and has set up a constantly updated spreadsheet that rates them. You can see the chart and methodology here.   When  I looked at it, Best Buy was number 1 and Intel was number 2.  For some reason, I'm nervous about Best Buy; I'm just not convinced they are going to be around long-term.  It's a gut feeling, not an educated point of view.  In any case, I didn't want to buy Best Buy, so I bought Intel.  

Am I making money?

I'm up this week!


Off to plan some yummy lunches so when my husband buys groceries tomorrow he gets what I need so I can skip the overprice mediocre food at the building lunch counter and buy stock instead.

  1. My husband who is retired made my lunch twice this week - a farro salad. I've never had farro before and must say it wasn't bad and filling too. I struggle with making a lunch that is filling enough or tempting enough to actually eat.

    It would be heaven if he'd make my lunch everyday, but I'm not going to push my luck.
