    REMEMBER ‘MR NIGER D’ from secondary school? ‘N’ stands for nutrition, which basically means we’ve got to eat.

    You know we’ve got to save and all, but a girl needs her food. You know?? But how much is too much? Here’s how to know if you spend too much on food:

    1.  You don’t use a list when you go to the supermarket

    It way too easy to do impulse buying when you go shop without a grocery list. Having a clearly written list with the amount you’ll want to spend helps you resist temptation when you see a new brand of chocolate you didn’t put up on your list.

    2. You spend more to eat out than on grocery and produce shopping 
    If you spend more money and time eating out than preparing your meals, you probably spend more than you should on food.

    Think about how much it costs to eat a plate of rice and chicken at a regular eatery and how much it would cost to make it yourself. You’ll even be able to have second and third helpings!

    3. The delivery guys from Domino’s greet you by name
    “Ah Aunty, we never see you this week oo!”. This means you order food a lot, but we just thought we’d mention it again for emphasis. Sub!

    4. You always pay for everyone

    There’s nothing wrong with splitting the bill when it comes to hanging out with friends. It’s not awkward at all to share the bill amongst yourselves. You ate it together, you’ll pay for it together.

    5.  There’s never food at home
    Which means you’ll buy food on your way home again.

    6. You throw food away
    After you buying fresh food and groceries, you end up throwing them away because you let them go bad/expire. So you buy food on your way home yet again.

    7. You give yourself a ‘treat’ every time you feel bad

    Food is not the answer, sister.  Bad days will come, but your force of will to fight through is what’s important. (ZumiNg)
