I'd splurge at Aldi's and add to this a jar of Parmesan & Romano shaky cheese &
a bag of their frozen meatballs. Their 99-cent meat tomato glass jar sauce is tons better than the canned shit at other places.
Huge bag of cheap pasta, huge bag of frozen mixed vegetables, huge block of butter, huge tub of garlic powder.
I ate pasta with vegetables cooked in garlic butter everyday for years. It cost like 10 quid a week.
I don't think cheapest food is correct. ramen are dirt cheap but it's not what you want, I guess. I think you want
>saddest meal you have ever eaten
pretty much the OP without butter. for 3 days in a row. student times were hard times, man. makes your really learn how to (micro-) manage your money
That's fine If you can afford those extras. There was a time in my life where i was borderline homeless, a professional couch surfer. I used to give blood plasma for the money and i always knew if i had $2 in my pocket, i could eat for days.
I do this with Penne pasta and either Alfredo with cajun seasoning or pasta sauce.
$1.08 for 1lb of pasta
$~1.60 for sauces
A box of pasta is about 3 to 4 meals and a jar of sauce is about 6 to 8 meals or so.
Not me, but when I was a student in Chicago, I saw homeless people do this-
Buy cup of instant ramen
Use the hotdog fixin' bar to fill up your soup with all the free chili and nacho cheese and tomato and pickles and peppers and onions as you can.
I feel like battered Mars Bars should get a mention here. It's like a meals worth of calories for less than a pound. If you can a afford some chips as well I guarantee you'll be full all day.
Still not cheap when you compare how much food you could've gotten instead of that burger.
I was saying "where are the pickled beetroots? It's not labskaus without pickled beetroots."
That would just have the nutritional value of water. Next time, spend the money on a bag of frozen vegetables, boil them to fuck and add some salt and pepper, you can just steal them from a cafe or McDonalds or something, then mash it up. Same cost but actually food.
I'm not a poor student anymore, but that was cheaper than soup greens. that bag of vegeta lasted for two to three weeks and cost about 2€. soup greens cost 0,80€ per 1,5 liter soup
I will admit, as a high schooler I jumped in some bandfags car and off to Baltimore to see some other shit band, ended up there for 4 days, with cops looking for me, before Christmas, I litterly survived on shitty cheap half drank beer I found and sprinkles, they were a little shaker full of tiny tiny pink sprinkles. I still remember them to this day. Sitting in the corner of shitty ally way siphoning off little sections of sprinkles from my shaker. And it was fucking delicious and I don't regret it. Some random normie approached me in alleyway mid sprinkle eating, looked at me like he'd seen the face of medusa and litterly backed up, walking completely backwards till he exited alleyway. Going home, got arrested the second I stepped foot in home city. Ended up throwing up in cop car. Went to hospital, had septicemia, was told it was from IV drug use. Still convinced to this day it was from beer & sprinkles, I have not eaten sprinkles since, it's been 9 years.
I agree that prepacked vegetables at a supermarket are a rip off, but low quality frozen bags go for next to nothing whole sale. That's the trick to living cheap, accept cheap produce in bulk.
That's what I've been eating for the last 3 days. But I did it by choice. Use a cheese grater on the potato to make hash browns and make fried or scrambled eggs.
That shits cash
oh I think I'm using it correctly. I never bought prepackaged greens, I lived off vegeta. but anon was too stupid/lazy to read the thread.
and getting mad over prepackaged veggies is being butthurt in my book
I used to eat bulk dried beans rehydrated in water + bulk Mac n cheese or some other bulk soup mix with juicer carrots as a side (way cheaper than regular carrots and not very different) pretty frequently when I was in college
why do you think I was mad? because I used some swear words?
niggah you need to learn that those words can also be used for emphasis, is in you're a complete fucking retard, not just when people are mad.
Fuck yeah. I always just chopped potatoes up into tiny pieces and fry them up until I saw a show on tv where they used a cheese grater then fried it up. It all sticks together and its like 10 times better than mcd hash browns.
And it's cheap as fuck
and you dont always have rice, potatoes and flour? you need to prioritize, nigga. stop wasting butter (especially that fucking much butter) on bread and get a huge bag of rice instead for the money you saved.
I used to eat ramen noodles only but they have no nutritional value so I started cooking up rice with the flavor packs out of ramen, and saving the ramen noodles to be made with beans & chicken.
Rice, beans and chicken. The third world favorite
Yeah I just red it and thats basically how I've been making them. I swear I'll never get sick of eggs and hash browns. I'm 35 and I've been eating it as long as I can remember
lived off of a flat of disgusting sweet potato canned soup i picked up like 3 years ago and every day after work i'd go and steal pallets and recycling to return so I could buy eggs to fry up before work.
I was working at a moving company while doing this and went from 225 pounds to 165 in 3 months. my boss thought I was on drugs or sick, and even tried to talk to me about it. I felt so weak and sick that whole time.
thankfully i've turned things around. Fuck Vancouver and it's crazy expensiveness. There's no job where employers don't rip off your overtime and delay paying you in this godforsaken place if you're not educated or young. how do you justify screwing around an 18 year old kid that relies entirely upon that paycheque
10/10 with rice!

Completely true. Ended up almost dying of infection. Was in the hospital for almost two weeks and had to write my will and this tiny little fucking priest would come everyday and give me last rites even though I'm Muslim. I got tons of free holy water n shit. They were first searching for me for being a missing endangered minor & for grand larceny, (I had a previous warrant for stealing 3k worth of gold from store) and when I was finally caught resisting arrest, assault on a police officer (barely), possession of marijuana, possession of heroin, possession of paraphernalia. I was 14/15, this was dec, bday in Jan. I kid you not after the hospital I went to court. My mum (same one who reported me) dressed me up in pale makeup and head scarf, rented heart monitor w/ electrodes. Told the judge I had cancer, she even faked cried "my daughter is so sick she has only so much time and she tries so hard in school" only had to write an essay apologizing for wasting valuable police reasources, mum wrote it for me on road trip to the beach as a "reward".
Fuck off Frog
OMELETTE DU FROMAGE
This is my breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next couple days
I really wish I had pic related right now but I'm fucking poor
I meant this is my breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next couple days
>Be me, studying abroad
>Lose the card with almost all the money
>"It's gonna take 5 days to make the card, sir"
>Have 5 euro cash
>Fuck it, spend it on smokes
>Live the 5 days on 2 packs of white bread and margarine, topped with pickless from a jar along with coffee
I'm on a second hand pc that was already showing signs of wear when I got it. Now I have to hope for a cold day so my computer don't overheat while I watch stuff on youtube. I'm a gamer who have been unable to game for years now.
When I've paid rent and utilities, the rest of the money has to go to food, not really good food, but enough food.
Some of us are just poor anon.
Shit I remember rummaging through trash cans at fast foods places for a receipt I could take in and get free food.
Or go to Circle K and get 79cent 44oz Pepsi to keep my calories up throughout the day. Shit was rough
If you think 2000 calories of battered Mars bar is the same as 2000 calories of vegetables, rice, beans, even meat then you are a retard and you deserve to die a worthless, disease ridden early death.
Just bought a bunch of food at Aldi for the first time. Man, can't believe how cheap that place is. US fag here fwiw, I know in Europe they are way more common. Definitely will be hitting it up a couple of times a month for the basics. 12 eggs for $0.69? Fuck yea.
it is a clock. the numbers represent each facet of men and women, and the cyclical nature of life and death. the 3s at the top and bottom are heaven and hell, the left side is life right now, the right side is this life in reverse. the 2s are women, the 1s and 3s on the right and left side are men.
the 2s are meant to represent the constant nature of women, and the difference between the 1s is "good" men and "bad" men ( in a sexual respect. men who want sex and men who don't).
the numbers are symbolic also for the importance of each gender in their respective lives. on the right side men are more important since they are farther from being similar to heaven and hell ( 1 is farther from 3 than 2), and on the left side since it is this life in reverse the men who were 1s before are now 3s and are identical to heaven and hell and 2s are instead the superior number.
In this life men are better; on the other side women are better. we balance each other out. the 1 that is being pointed to represents me and my being a "good" man because I do not want to enjoy life, but I used to be a "bad" man and I would've been pointed at the lower 1.
At the moment I live off of like $60 - $250 or so a week depending on work, and I but a lot of tinned spaghetti, thst combined with cheese and melted in the microwave is really filling. Also sausages, pack of 24 for like $8 from woolworths if you're an ausfag.
