If you had $20 dollars to last you until the next paycheck what would you buy from the grocery store
I would buy a gallon of milk, five cans of soup, a box of crackers, a jar of peanut butter, a loaf of bread and five bananas. I may have fifty cents left in change. It isn't necessarily pretty, but I wouldn't go hungry and I would obtain enough nutrients to get by. I would be thankful.
I would buy rice and oatmeal and milk. They are all relatively cheap and will last you a while. What would you buy?
Twenty dollars in lotto tickets and home for the best!
Joking of course. I agree with something along the lines of what ThePeeDeeWildcat suggested, but I would try to include some more protein in there instead of the crackers and all that soup, perhaps something cheap like hotdogs or a bulk package of chicken.
Another option might be some cheap cans of chicken broth, some cabbage, some carrots, and some chicken, and making a giant stock of soup. That with some peanut butter and bananas to make some snacks with.
I would buy two cans of tuna, bag of egg noodles, 2 cans of cream of chicken and mushroom, loaf of bread, 6 pack of Ramen, a bag of shredded cheese, 1/2 a pound of cheese, 1 pound of lunch meat.
That should last me two weeks. I can make a tuna casserole last me 3 days, have some Ramen noodles for 3 days,and have some sandwiches for the remaining days
This actually happens to me at some occasions. I usually try to survive with whatever I have in the house and save the $20 for emergencies. Believe me, as a student you never know for what situation you may need the money. But may be some bread, rice, eggs, few veggies.
I would buy rice, milk and oatmeal. This would not cost me much and would provide me the nutrition and energy for my day to day work.
I'd buy 2 packages of Ramen noodles to eat. I'd also buy some eggs, 3 different kinds of cookie pre-mixed packages, a couple pkgs of brownie mix, some milk, some chocolate chips and fluorescent poster board. I'd go home and bake for a few hours and find a mom & pops hardware store to let me have a bakesale outside their store.
I would buy 2 loaves of bread, a package of hotdogs, a package of cheap .99 cent lunch meat. A dozen eggs, a gallon of milk, A box of no brand oatmeal, a package of hamburger, 2 boxes of hamburger helper. That would leave me 10.00 for an emergency, gas or whatnot. The hamberger helper meal would last me 4 days, I could have sandwiches or a hotdog as dinner the rest, with eggs and oatmeal as breakfast, I generally skip lunch, but I may use my 10.00 for some fruit also. And the gallon of milk would last the whole week.
