After asking this question- How Do You Live on A 10k Budget? At the office, there was chaos, arguments here and there and a lot of people saying it is not possible but guess what? It is trust me.
You see the thing is if you’re not living on a 10k budget it doesn’t mean someone else isn’t living on 10k or less. You just need to cut your coat according to your size and understand that these situations are usually temporary. As long as you work hard, you will definitely have a better source of income in no time so hang in there.
I picked out a few points from the argument that ensued at the office and the testimonies people gave and I’ll like to share them with you. So if you’re living on a 10k budget here are some tips to help.
The Big Move
Now you need to understand that 10 thousand Naira cannot feed you and house you at the same time. The first thing you have to consider is leaving the city, especially when it’s a big city. We’re talking Lagos, Abuja or PH here. If you move then you don’t even have 10k to live with so let’s stay back and see how we can work this out.
If you’ve come this far then it means you are willing to learn.
Next you have to find a suitable accommodation. Now get the thought of rent out of your head, you can’t afford it. You have to look for a place to squat or if you’re working in a shop you can ask to sleep there. Home and workplace together makes life a lot easier. If you’re sleeping at work then transportation is covered if not you have to find the cheapest means of transportation.
Guys, if you think having a girlfriend when you’re earning 10 thousand Naira a month is a good move then go on. I don’t want to hurt your feelings but cutting your coat according to your size also means you have to and must cut off from relationships for now. It would save you a lot of hungry nights.
Your feeding habit has to change really. If you’re squatting with someone it may be easier to feed but if you’re living at your office then you have to eat what is within your budget. 001 or 010 is the best way to eat at this point. One meal a day and we’ll be fine.
Don’t forget to save, no matter how little so you know you always have something to fall back on if all hope is lost.
And remember to cut your coat according to your size sometimes it’s even better to cut your coat according to the size of material.
