Eating all of your money
How often do you eat out? Do you go out to eat? How much do you spend on groceries? How much do you spend on snacks at the gas station, convenience store, grocery store and department store? How often are impulse items that are food do you purchase? Do you prefer delivery, pick up or dine in? why do you prefer delivery, take out or dine in? how often do you purchase the store brand cheaper versions of products verses the name brand of products? Do you ever judge other people for eating the way that they do and for the decisions that they make?
I find that I am a very judging type of person and as much as I would want to help someone out with what is going on in their life sometimes I can’t. I find that sometimes I want to go out for coffee with someone and they can’t because they claim that they don’t have the money to do so but, in my opinion, if they weren’t purchasing so much delivery then they would be able to go out for coffee. Or someone is out on their luck and needs some help with some groceries. I choose to help them, but they decide to purchase pop, snacks, treats and name brand products with it. To me if you can’t afford things then maybe you shouldn’t treat yourself to so many privileges in life. I am not saying don’t treat yourself, but can you treat yourself too much? Gluttony is something easy that can make you feel temporarily satisfied but it isn’t in the long run, at least in my opinion.
I find that I am someone who is guilty of eating all of my money. I usually purchase coffee in the morning, lunch and snacks for the day. I am gluttonous myself. I am a victim of eating all of my money. I do need to stop eating all of my money. I try to remember that it isn’t what you have it is what you save. I find that I do need to take the power away from food and get my life back. Food isn’t everything.
Listen to your body. It will tell you everything that you need to know.
How much money do you spend on food every week, month or year? How much is to much? Do you give to food banks? Have you ever gone to the food bank yourself? How much food waste do you have? Do you ever have any food waste? How often do you go to the grocery store? What type of attitude do you have towards purchasing food? Are you addicted to sugar and salt? Do you have lots of fruit and veggies in your fridge? How full or empty is your fridge and cupboards on a regular basis? Do you compost? How much money do you spend on groceries, impulse items and delivery? Is food a treat or a punishment? How often do you treat yourself with food? How often do you force yourself to eat something that is good for you or to finish off your plate?
