Working adults, how much money do you spend on food per day?
I recently started working and set a limit for myself to not spend more than $8/day on food. But then I realised that $8 unable to make me feel full plus since everything has increased nowadays, so stuffs are no longer cheap.
So I then increased my limit to a maximum of $10 per day. I told myself that I work hard and work long hours daily, so I can’t just spend much money on food drinks.
- I tend to overspend on food lol. Usually in the morning omw to work I’ll buy a fruit of some sort or bread and green tea. For lunch I’ll spend $6 and and then i go home and buy dinner which would be about $6 as well but this is sometimes when I’m hungry otherwise I just don’t eat dinner lol. So total about $9 if I dont buy dinner and about $15 if I do. But it’s not fixed because I also tend to buy random chocolate and sweets a lot when I go out buying lunch lmfao. So could be more.
- About $3 for breakfast (usually beehoon or nasi lemak), $5-$7 lunch(including drink), dinner will be cooked at home.
I would rather you not save on food. Penny wise, pound foolish if you skimp on food and got yourself all sorts of problems especially gastric issues.
- I spend less working from home.. 200 dollars extra when I’m required to work in office due to a few dollars difference in the office area. Well.. The cost does accumulate.. I m pondering to make a sandwich but then will miss out on the team bonding and opportunities to make small talks..
- About $10-$15 per day. I’m doing one meal a day (intermittent fasting). Lost weight, save money. Best of both world.
