Saving on food is one of the easiest way to do. Some people says when you stay alone, it's cheaper to eat outside than cook your own meal. But nah, that's just an excuse actually haha.
I only spend around RM40 weekly to buy groceries and it can lasts more than a week actually. Let me give you some example :
Veggies 1 : RM2 ( for 3 meals)
Vegge 2 : RM 3 ( for 3 meals)
Chicken : RM 4 ( 3 or 4 meals)
10 eggs : RM4.50 (5/6 meals)
frozen food : RM8 ( 8 - 10 meals)
Fish : RM12 (4 -5 meals)
Others : RM10
If you eat outside:
Breakfast ( Mee + telur mata ) + drinks : RM5.50
Lunch : RM8
Dinner : RM8
If you have RM40, eating outside can lasts u only 2 or 3 days. But if you cook, it can lasts for more than a week. You only spend RM50 the most per week if you cook. So it's only maximum around RM200 per month. And you can eat healthy and delicious food!
Having your meal outside you will spend around RM350 or RM400 monthly. See the difference? You can save up to RM200 per month, which is RM2,400 per year!
And again what you can buy for RM2,400 ? You can settle your life insurance :).
Well it's an individual choice and i just happen to choose to spend wiser and save a lot so that maybe someday i can live my dream :)
Happy Monday people!
