Live cheap in Yemen

Ok, this maybe sounds very strange to you, but for those who are experiencing financial difficulties in Yemen or for those who would like to be prepared, this might be a good tip:

If you face such difficulties that you don’t even know what you will eat tomorrow, then it might be a good tip to spend your money wisely. If you happen to have some money for food, then spend it on dry beans, like chick peas, black- eyed peas, white beans, lentils, etc.

These types of food you can store well for a long long time and it is nutritious food and healthy. Dry beans are also cheap.

Here in Yemen we cook these beans for breakfast and/ or dinner.

  1. Salaam alekom Umm Ruqqayah,
    nice to come across your blog about your life and living experience in Yemen. I'm from Canada and am also living in Sana'a and I find your blog entries to be oh-so-accurate :) Great tips! Thanks for the entries. Hope all is well.

  2. As-salaamu 'Alaykum akhwaati, My zawj and I would like to insha'Allah make hijrah to Yemen. It would be wonderful to talk to those already living there. Masha'Allah, so happy to have found you blog. Wasallamu 'Alaykum

  3. As-salaamu 'Alaykum ukhti, Insha'Allah if Allah Ta'ala grants a visa to come to Yemen, how easy, and what is the process for renewal in order to stay? JazakiAllahu khairan!

  4. wa alaikum salaam wa rahmatulaahi wa barakaatuh sisters,

    Thx for the comments. Uuhhmm with respect to the process for renewal, i actually don't know. I would have to ask about it. You see, my husband is Yemeni, so I don't think I have much to do with it. But I'll try to get some info in sha Allah and I'll hope to write about it.

    Wa iyaakum! Wa alaikum salaam wa rahmatulaahi wa barakaatuh!!!

  5. JazakiAllahu khairan ukhti, Any info on the whole visa/renewal/residency process is very much appreciated! BarakAllahu Feeki

  6. Another way is if you have cooperation between yourself and other foreigners and yemenis. Helping each other out saves a lot of time and money.
