We get it — it’s hard to make yourself make yourself lunch every week! Moreover, it’s so easy to buy tons of food over the weekend, thinking you’ll prepare nutritious and appetizing lunches for yourself every day in the coming week, only to let everything languish in the refrigerator and eat out every day. It’s much cheaper and healthier to bring your own food to the office, however, and it’s possible to form the habit — and a game plan and some inspiration go a long way.

This year, the lady on everyone’s mind is Sandy, as the hurricane makes its way up the East Coast over the next couple of days (although an equal amount of people seem to be fond of the much more creative “Frankenstorm”). In Sandy’s honor, let’s take a look at some other huge and expensive storms that happened to be “female,” and try to resist any “ladies like expensive things” jokes while we’re at it.
