Some 27 per cent ($63) of the weekly food and beverage bill in 2009/10 went on eating out and fast food. But alcohol was the next biggest expenditure item at 14 per cent ($32). That's as much as households spend each week on electricity and gas. extra foods" - such as takeaway, crisps, sweet biscuits, pastries, confectionery, soft drinks and alcohol - are generally high in energy and low in nutrients. "On average extra foods contributed to 36 per cent of energy intake for adults and 41 per cent for children which is more than the recommended zero to three serves of extras per day," Ms McGlynn said. Some 23 per cent of children and 60 per cent of adults in Australia are now overweight or obese. households are, nevertheless, still throwing out $600 worth of food each year IF the average smoker smokes one pack per day. $5.50 per day gives a monthly average of $165.00 spent on cigarettes. If , instead of spending it on cigarettes, you were to just save that $165.00 every month in a jar where it earned no interest whatsoever, you would have the following: $9,900 in five years. GAMBLING: Analysis of Australian Bureau of Statistics data by CommSec found the average Australian household spent $2292 a year. So how can God bless you financially? Well, repent of smoking, drinking excessively, gambling, eating out more then once a fortnight, fast food junk foods soft drinks, and eat everything in the fridge, waste nothing. IF you are walking in the above you are blowing about 5000 a year. So when you become a Christian its important to repent of those bondages before you come to God and say poor me, bless me.
