Thats a pretty generous spreading of both PB and J. Wastage on the napkin and residue on the knife. Next time, make your per diem go further by applying just a light smear of each. Like a watercolor painting. Yw

🤣 I’m liking that frugality. That per diem is yours to keep, you can eat well when you get home 😂.

I store year old peanut butter and rice cakes at the client for emergencies when I can’t get lunch and for entertaining myself on really boring conference calls

You’re supposed to use a knife for the peanut butter but a spoon for the jelly.

Cut down the jelly, save $ for rainy day and save from diabetes.

Confirmed. Takes some effort to find PB without added sugar.

The rate is fine, the trick is to spend very little on work trips and save it for personal use since it’s a flat rate
