It depends on my field. If I do everything in my house, I don’t need to go out, I will not need much daily. But if I stay far from where I work, I have to think of transport, eating out, I would need more. At least, I must have a minimum of N3,000 on me daily.
It should not be less than N2,000 and that also depends. If I am not going out of my office, I just need to get to work, eat and go back home. But if it is more than that, I must have more than N2,000 on me.

I spend N10000 per day with my family both our feeding, transport and any other items.
