Is it sold in the south?
Hw can one purchase it. In the market?
Psiyohos:
It's a grain, like millet. It is called Hungry man rice, or Fonio

It is very popular in the North, not so much in the west but, think you can get it at Mile 12 in Lagos

Can be eaten like a cereal or made like jollof rice with beans and vegetables

Buy food in bulk . Cook big batch of food and put it in portions in your second hand bought freezer .


Nobody needs soft drinks or alcohol . It's a waste of money.
You can make your own drinks for cheap eg soya milk, zobo

Dr Sebi's Alkaline Diet

The only way forward in removing toxins from our bodies and living a healthier life.
When you don't spend on your health. That money can be channelled to other productive things.

I NOW USE ONLY DENTAL POWDERS (Herbal one)
It's cheap #200
And better for the teeth, I have lost 2 of my teeth to extraction. This I feel is better
The conventional toothpaste is wrong as they are ineffective, expensive and they contain fluoride that calcifies your pineal gland.

This is my gripe with modern society, the things that are expensive, unsustainable that we kill ourselves trying to acquire and use are actually the things that are bad for us. I am at the stage where I distrust anything that is advertised on TV.
We have been lied to.

TINUBULATION TIPS

As things get tougher, we as individuals have to get smarter in this age of Apprehension, the goal is to survive no matter what.

1. First cut off the buying of sachet water, I boil water in a pot and transfer it when it cools to water bottles that I take for the day.
If you calculate it, its cheaper.

2. Beans is your friend, I always boil beans everyday, Everyday? YES everyday!
Beans being an oligosaccharide stays longer than empty carbs and rice.
The trick is to boil it first with salt for 15 minutes, sieve it out, boil it again and allow the hot water soak it, Go to work come back and it would have soften, this way you save more on gas.

3. Garri ,Kuli and a Bulb of Onions every week.
Yes Garri is the sustainer the retainer of blood sugar and the gauge, the first aid, the hope,
Cancel the breakfast of tea and now expensive bread.
Switch to garri instead. FAST till 10 am drink your garri quitely with enough sugar either with moi moi or with kuli. I prefer the red garri because of the eye though At the end of the week, you eat a bulb of onions to assist the eyes.
Normalise the use of locust beans to cook either stew or soup to also help.

4. Get A Charcoal stove, we don't know what is coming but, just incase buy one to reduce the pressure on your gas.
Food like beans and Rice can slowly be cooked there.

5. REDUCE your Stress
Medicine is now very expensive, don't stress yourself and fall sick, Who sick now, Don enter one chance. Learn to sit quietly, sleep or watch a movie, conserve as much energy as possible.

6. MANAGE WHAT YOU HAVE
Don't buy anything for now, e.g Cloth, bag etc until after March next year so that we cross the danger zone safely.
Reduce your food option to mainly beans, Grounded beans, Kunnu, Potatoes and Acha

You need food that last for long in the stomach
It better your farts smell than dying of hunger

More tips in time...

STEAMING:

Many of us think we are really breathing properly but we are not.
We gradually lose our deep breaths in time.
During and even after the Covid 19 pandemic many  air bone diseases have been discovered and kept hidden from the public  as part of thier bio warfare silent wars on the public

Make it a thing to always do STEAMING at
least once every 3 months and see the changes in the way you used to breathe.

I usually boil A bulb of onions and enough salt, when it boils
I get my towel, put it over my head and open my mouth and my nose intermittently

I close my eyes throughout as steam affects the eyes

Do this for 5 -7 minutes and thats all..

When in the market place get a nose mask.
May we not fall sick in this period.

Charcoal Stove.

I just bought one at Terminus Market at 10k
The Metal Work area
It's becoming quite scarce too.

Since The German Chancellor came to Nigeria to formally request for gas, I have been apprehensive, the price of Gas might increase again.
I wanted to buy 2 more and send to Lagos but that will be later.

At least beans and rice can be cooked on this and this is better can be used indoors too

If you have a church group any group that can contribute money and have someone send this for you.
It can also be a business to sell at 13k or 14k in the cities, if you are interested
Re: Living Besides Nigeria by Psiyohos: 7:39am On Dec 15, 2023
COUCH OF 7k

Instead of spending thousands building a couch
You can spend just
2.5k on Pallets (2)
Leather 1 yrds 2k
Foam #500

You can also check Google for other pallet designs so you can save money on furniture..


When buying foam buy this type with the hard back, it's the most resilient and doesn't absorb water easily.
You can also buy two of it and use It to make your mattress, you just need to add bed cover.

NATURAL AIR CONDITION AND AIR FILTER

one thing I noticed about this life is, that life is all about OT. Yes orientation. Wetin people use pass you na small small things, small small OT. While you waste money, people are spending less and using the saved money to achieve better things.

Instead of buying AIR conditions, while not buy Indoor plants and put them in your house.
Apart from sunlight what else do you think plant eat, - Co2 Yea Carbon dioxide.
When you have 2 of these in your living room and porch. You will notice that the air seems fresher, the room feels cooler. Especially some of us that live in Major Cities like Lagos and Co.

I bought my own snake plant for 1.5k with concrete cement vase o.
And I automatically notice the difference.
Invest in indoor plants, its more cheaper and sustainable than buying AC



The goal of this thread is to give every single Nigerian financial freedom, don't say it can't be done. If you live with very little, the excess can be saved to open a business of your choice or invest in productive things.
To living besides Nigeria... life na just OT
