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.Written on March 25th, 2021 by Kevin Olega
