One of the great discoveries of the last few years for me was that stocking up on food for long periods of time is actually bad for your finance. Let me explain with a simple example. I am a big fan of white chocolate – and yes I know that’s not food – so every month I try to eat 4 bars of chocolates – I don’t like overdoing things- therfore I bought 4 bars at once. Two weeks later I was back in the store buying 4 more bars, because while at home, my mind kept going back to the chocolate bars in the fridge so I ended up eating them all. I know it sound harsh, but if you don’t have it you won’t eat it, so you eat less.
