The Mindy Project's Mindy Lahiri is just like us... She loves romantic comedies, McDonald's and Beyonce. The only difference is she's full of total gems of wisdom.

We're not sure how we coped before she appeared on our screens offering up her fruitful insight into sex, relationships, food and life in general. We've pulled together our favourite pearls of knowledge into a list you may want to keep close to hand so you can bust them out in everyday conversation...

5. On impulse buys
