In these trying times where there’s nowhere cool, we understand if you’re going through some hard times and even affording food becomes a problem.
If you think about all the bills to be paid, your transportation to and from work and even buying certain necessities for survival, the money you get paid for might not even be enough. If you work in an area where the food around is quite expensive on their own even before delivery, it makes matters worse but you can’t afford to not eat too.
Your body needs that energy to work during the day plus you can’t afford to fall sick on the job when you don’t have money to pay more hospital bills.
Here are some tips to help you through these trying times.
Meal prepping is simply the act of preparing a meal then portioning it out so that you can grab it anytime you need to. This is mostly advised to be done during the weekends and stored in your fridge. This is cheaper cuz then, you don’t need to keep buying anytime you go to work or school.
Grow a backyard garden
This makes living quite cheap. You can grow the necessary foods you need and you get to save the rest of your money. Plus, you eat healthier.
Buy food products in bulk from the market
If you can buy a 50kg bag of rice, buy it cuz it will last. We are emphasizing on buying products from the market because when these foodstuffs are there they’re cheaper than when they’re found in that shop in front of your house. They’ve added their transportation fare and profit to it so you’ll pay more. Plus when you buy in bulk, you don’t have to go back and buy more products for quite some time cuz you’re covered.
Eat heavy breakfast
To be clear, this point might make you lose weight. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you learn to eat a heavy and nutritious breakfast you’ll be able to survive for more than half of the day (considering the fact that you close from work at 5 pm) provided you keep drinking water. You’ll probably need some snacks to keep you going till you have dinner.
Free food at the malls
Lol! Not full actual meals. We are talking about samples. This might not satisfy you but if you’re really desperate this point can help you out. Take several tasting tours around the store if you need to. Some grocery stores offer free cookies near the bakery; take advantage of it. New products activate in these shops by doing sampling so you can use it to your advantage.
We wish you all the best and hope that things get better soon. Remember, you have values and don’t let these trying moments cause you to lose them and force you to steal
