When I used go to the office, at least 3-4 times a week. I used to mostly use the office cafeteria or take a walk to the mall. I eventually got sick of the office cafeteria menu which indicates how often I went.
I've hardly been over the past 8 months since I started working from home. I am living with my family again so my Mum cooks. It has probably saved me a lot of money.
It can be very very tempting. It is very convenient (easier to dispose of materials and gives you easy, tasty food). But unless you are going to Kara Nicha's, it is going to add up if you do it all the time and you will realize that this is money which you could have easily saved.
There is nothing wrong with a decent vetkoek and minceI never cook.
/looks at gut
Well technically 2min noodles is cooking isn't it?
Also the food I get at the local spar is just the same food you lot cook in your houses anyway, Vetkoek en mins today, some alfredo yesterday.
Hardly ever lately. Main reason is price, becoming costly, and the local take away's have been getting steadily worse quality wise, talking franchised take away places.
Make my own versions at home, cheaper, tastier and the kids prefer it.
Hope you are paying your mum to stay there? AND helping with the dishes.
Conservative Indian people are different (though it may be very conservative parents in general), they literally force you to stay at home. It's hard to explain but I don't have much of a choice unless I get married (not going to happen) or get a job in another city.
I don't help out with the dishes but I do contribute to the household bills where I can.
What chinese do you get?We get the kids McDs once or twice a week after school, and the occasional Chinese takeaway when I want a break from cooking.
