I found myself busy with work these days.
An eatery opened near our place.
They sell rice for ₱10.
They sell most meals for ₱50.
I bought some pork adobo ₱50 and rice ₱10.
I spent ₱60.
The eatery gives a generous serving but I eat a lot.
I scrambled and fried two eggs.
At the time of this writing, a dozen eggs cost ₱110.
Scrambling and cooking the eggs takes 10 minutes.
Here’s some math.
|FREQUENCY||ADOBO+RICE||Scrambled Eggs||Total Cost|
|Twice a Day||₱120.00||₱36.67||₱156.67|
I’m considering if this would make sense as a meal if I’m alone and in a hurry.
Cooking the egg myself is only ten minutes.
The cleanup is considerably less than making the meals myself.
I use time to save money on the eggs.
I use money to save time by buying food.
I’m not sure if the strategy makes sense or cancel each other out.
Only time will tell.
Thank you for reading.
