When every basic commodities in our country is increasing. What is the BEST thing you can still buy at 50 pesos in your place? Since I love to eat peanuts! I would spend the 50.oo on buying a Cheding peanut. It is very crispy and delicious.

hmmm, i have four children and i dont think having just fifty pesos will makes us happy. maybe i can buy ensaimada lol. fish ball that will make us happy. 10 pesos each of fish ball for the the five of us. indian mango or santol would make us happy about that 50 pesos.

Four children plus your partner makes you six. 50 divided by six equals to 8 pesos something... Ensaimada would be delicious, I love the sugar toppings.

donuts cost 10 pesos, so i can still buy 5 donuts on fifty pesos. 2 for me 2 for my son and a donut for my wife. har har har. i can also buy two orders of siomai. the siomai on the siomai stand at the mall cost around 24 pesos per 4 pieces and i can buy two orders.

Nice choice, why wasn't I able to think of that. A kilo of rice is almost and I think some is already at 50 pesos :( I think I gotta stop chewing the peanuts, and buy rice instead.

Hmm.. Since I can't manage to eat rice at midnight as my lunchbreak at work because it makes me sleepy after, I would say that I would buy a tuna pie and pineapple juice combo at jolibee or two regular yum burgers. Lolz..

Good suggestions from a 50 peso budget. If i would eat from a chain store, I would be having a swirly bits or an mcflurry... Or just a fries, lots of fries...

well, i won't buy anything with P50, instead I'll save it. think about it, if you save P50 daily, that will amount to P350 a week and become a P1400 in a month. you can turn your P50 into P16,800 in a year. that's just me though. i'm mor einclined to think about saving the extra money that i hae instead of spending it.

My first choice would be to spend P50 for a kilo of rice, too. But I could also use it to buy a kilo of bananas or a kilo of ripe mangoes (if they're in season). A kilo of mangoes usually costs more if they're not in season.

At P50.00, I still can buy a can of soda and a bag of potato chips. :) I love that, my favorite snack. I also can buy burger instead of potato as well. Those are my favorite food these days.
