Bargain Shopping

So you are on your last $30 but you need food. What's on the menu after you get back from the grocery store aside from ramen? I need some ideas.

$30 enough for a decent meal in America? If so go to a restaurant and spend the lot on something you like. On the way home smash some old ladies face up and take her purse.
Well she moved in ways
That kept her there in our minds for days
Weeks and months it was
I was that amazed and there she stays
Surrounded by the what-ifs and the maybes

I wouldn't say decent meal, but something to hold you over until the next paycheck. Those Banquet meals are great. One dollar for a couple pieces of fried chicken and some corn.

So no one has ever been on a budget before?

buy some tortillas, for 1.59 some chorizo for 1 dollars and a carton of eggs for 1.50 should last you for four days. buy a three 2 liters of soda or 89 cents eachthat should be about8 bucks and then buy a pack of pork chops for about 5 bucks and some rice....30 dollars is a lot

I'm exaggerating a little bit about being really broke but I always go to the grocery store on a budget. I'm stuck in bachleor mode but all the frozen pizzas are starting to get to me.

Try cooking spaghetti (cheap as hell) and making your own sauce or getting some pre-made sauce. Should be cheap and tastes good imo
