Experts say that breakfast is the most important meal of the deal, but it doesn't mean that it has to be the most costly one.
Business Insider has tips on how to save money on breakfast, and it only involves a small bit of pre-planning. Their tips include:
1. Prep your eggs: Boil enough eggs for the workweek ahead of time. Add a dozen eggs to a pot of boiling water, cover for 8-10 minutes and you're in business!
2. Make fresh fruit and veggie smoothies. Business Insider adds "fruit won't go to waste as it won't go bad in the freezer."
3. Bring your own mug to your favorite coffee shop.
Business Insider adds, "Many coffee shops and cafes offer discounts for customers who bring their own mugs or travel mugs — even if it's just ten-cents, you'll save a dollar over ten days."
