Easy Way To "Brown Bag" for lunches at work!

Do you eat lunch out a lot or take your own. Here is a easy way to have lunches available for taking to work. I make a few meals at the beginning of the month that are freezer friendly for my husband to take to lunch. I make 3-4 meals (enough for 3-4 worth of that meal that gives us about 9-16 meals a month for lunches, then fill in the rest of the days with leftovers usually) His favorites are meatballs and marina, chicken stir fry, and burritos. This makes it easy to just grab a lunch and go and does cost alot. I tend to just make extra of these recipes at the beginning or end of a month (spread out usually) and freeze 3-4 portions of the meal that way it doesn't take me much time at all! Does anyone do anything similar?

We used to do that sort of thing, but he is retired now, I work from home, and our sons are grown and out of the house. One other thing that we still sometimes do is pack several lunches before going on a long trip. That is, we buy a loaf of bread and all of the fixings, make sandwiches, and pack them all back into the bag that the bread came in.
