Laziness makes money fly off from your pockets...

I admit I have been overwhelmed with work and had been ordering food lately. Today just as I was going to order a sandwich and a chocolate muffin, I suddenly realized that I could buy food that would be worth many meals for the same amount of money and to prove my theory I walked to the grocery store.

I was going to get;

A large Original Schlotzky's Sandwich 16,90 TL
A chocolate muffin 5 TL
Total: 22,90 TL / USD 10,60

Instead I got;

Turkey Breast (enough for 4 sandwiches)
4 whole wheat rolls
1 salmon steak
A package of salt
1 avocado
A candy bar

Set me back a total of 23,60 TL / USD 10,92

Now that is five meals and a snack plus the salt that I needed.

  1. It's a much better deal but I too get lazy and just want a meal handed to me!
    And thank you for your input on my blog. I needed to know that there are people out there that are on my side and care.

  2. Look at you go! Indeed, a lot of my internal arguments is "how many meals will this quick meal gonna really cost me?" The answer almost always is: too many! That's why the only food I could actually buy was Chinese food... because I could make it last for at least 4 meals and that made the cost under $3/meal. I can't do the hamburger/pizza stuff, because they're simply too expensive in terms of how many other meals I could get from that money.
