Help /b/! How does /b/ eat on a tight budget? I have only 1 can of spaghetti sauce, 1/4 lb of frozen ground beef , and only $40 to spend on groceries that needs to last me a month. I have no clue what to buy, any suggestions on how I make it through the month? Also my town doesn't have a good bank so that's not an option

Lentils. In bulk. From a bulk shop. In new Zealand we have a place called " bin inn" where you there is a bunch of plastic containers with spouts at the bottom for filling bags with, and plastic drums filled with stuff. They sell things like bulk flour, detergent powder, grain, and you guessed it, lentils. Lentils are high in protein, And can be a good source of vitamins. They also contain plenty carbohydrates. Lentils are the closest you'll get to a full meal in a staple food on a budget. Boil them, then fry them in a pan, and add like a spoon of pasta sauce. Get some tins of pasta sauce too, if you want more flavour. 30 bucks on lentils, 5 bucks on tins of stuff that will make lentils taste better, 5 bucks on whatever.

ramen is like 25 cents a packet, 3 packets a day is 75 cents, 90 packets a month would be 22 dollars leaving you with 18 on other shit

Spaghetti - 1 pack £1 enough for like 5/6 meals
Mincemeat - 250g for £2 enough for 3 meals
Burger buns - 6 for 50p make burgers from mince, can add onions they cost like 15p each
Tomato sauce - 40p for puree, garlic is pennies, onions 15p, spring onions about the same. Add mince and spaghetti.

Just be smart with how you spend.
Cereal is a good option aswell, a box of cornflakes costs me £2 and gives me like 10 bowls, milk is £3 for 2x2ltr. 10 breakfasts for £4 or 40p each.

Do a calories per cent analysis on your food.
For example, a dozen eggs has about 960 calories. Divide the calories by the cost in cents, in this case 200 cents for a dozen eggs, to get the calories per cents. You end up with calories per cent with eggs.

A 12 pack of ramen noodles contains 4560 calories at a cost of 239 cents. This gives you ~ 19 calories per cent.

Dude, get a bag of rice, a 5kg pack is enough to feed a single person for a month.

It fills you up and works great with any (side) dishes, it's pretty much a better sub to bread or potatoes.

Rice should make up 60-70% of your meal, and the rest are your meat, veggies and stuff.
>>
>>702544292
>>702544468
>>702544874
I forgott also potatoes
0.4€ per kg if bought in bulk

You also need one important mindset:

Eat to live and not live so you can eat.
Eating is just an annoying task you have to do in order to live.
Get the stuff above and you won't starve and get everything you need to rock the day!

It's cheap, delicious, not really nutritional, and will fill you up only using 2 packets. Buy 2 cases, "48 pack". It'll last you a month and 2 days, and you'll only be spending about $10

$40 for a month, this gonna be tough.
Prices are in Canadian/Maple Syrup/Leaves, so just reduce them accordingly I'm not doing that for you.

1 can of sauce + beef, I'll assume you need pasta.

Bread x3 @ $2 ea
Lunch meat packs, just buy as much as you can. Around 12 good sammiches should run you $10 (+/- $2)
Pasta x900g (2lbs) @ $2.50
Pasta sauce x 3 @ $1 ea
Eggs (dozen) x 3 @ $2.50 ea
Dried black beans x1 (bag) $2.25
Dried Split red lentils x1 (bag) $2.25
Spend the rest on rice. You should be able to get a MASSIVE fucking bag.
This should all cost around $40.

Beans - soak overnight, rinse, boil for a few hours until soft. Smash them up and add to pasta.
[1 x sauce + 1/4 bag of pasta + smashed beans (and the meat you have)] x 4 = 8 meals
bread + deli meats = 12 meals
2 x Eggs + bread = 18 meals
Lentils + rice = basically a shit load of meals to make up the rest

This will probably not actually get you through the month tbh fam senpai desu, but it's more of a guideline

2500*30=75,000 calories.
$40= 4,000 cents.

Op needs to get 75,000/4000 = 18.75 calories per cent.

>>702541968
Cheap, cheap rice, fry in lard before boiling. Save some money for next month so you can buy a cheap, generic multivitamin. Cheap pasta also works.

This is from the UK's ASDA (which is walmart), so the numbers aren't going to be exactly applicable, but you can get 1kg of spaghetti for £0.40 ($0.60), which has 3500 calories in it. For the same price, you can get 0.25kg of lard, which contains 2500 calories. If the budget permits it, the $0.10-per-pack stock cubes will make your rice/pasta taste less like you're eating soylent green (but have no calorific or nutritional value).

Big bulk bag of rice, say 20kg. And a big bulk bag of Pinto beans, also 20kg. Contains all proteins and carb to keep you running for months without losing weight or feeling tired. Literal pennies per serving. Buy some chili sauce or something for extra flavour.

Also, hang out with friends and eat there for some variation. Ask the local baker for leftovers at closing time. Be prepared to mop a floor or something. Toss the bread in the freezer. They arnt allowed to sell bread thats too old. Good luck anon.

Buy dried basics (pasta/rice/pulses)
Freeze fresh ingredients (eg. chop and freeze onions)
Get simple tinned basics (tomatoes / beans)

If you get simple ingredients and learn to cook; you'll have no problem.
Fresh veg is pretty cheap in reality, and most can be frozen in a convenient form.
Tinned stuff is also cheap, while a slightly more prepared version of the same in a jar is expensive.

Big sack of potatoes, some canned beans, cheese, frozen vegetables. Ask at butchers for bones for you "dog", boil them and make beef/pork stock, make soup.

>>
>>702541968
shop the edge of the grocery store. You're going to find fresh foods and less packaged shit.

Processing generally increases the price.

Convenience generally increases the price.

Spices and Seasonings are going to be expensive, but they make a world of difference.

Get bulk pasta, not Hamburger helper.

Skip meats and dairy, get protein from vegetable or grain sources (lentils, chickpeas, black beans, quinoa, green peas, ...)


You're going to trade your time for money; the less some food costs, the more prep and cook time it will take.

Do you have a crock pot? That can be a real time saver.

good luck.

by food in bulk and forget about good meat.

buy a sack of potatoes per week (i doubt you can even finish that and they're super cheap), rice, beans, lentils, other grains.

if you're gonna buy meat make it those mixed chicken packets that contain pretty much everything but chicken breast.

stay away from the more expensiveish stuff that is usually prepackaged.

you won't be swimming in flavor town, but you won't starve.

make sure you don't spend ANY of the 40 dlls on anything else.

Buy frozen (usually bought in bulk at a good season so they are cheap) or go to local markets for vegetables.
Cheaper meats are chicken and ground mix of beef/pork
Forget buying sauce from cans in the future, you're paying a lot of money for whats mostly tomato sauce. Invest in some fresh herbs. They grow everywhere and provide constant fresh and cheap supplies.
Buy big, cook big, portion and freeze.

If you have enough mental capacity and space you should grow food. Iv done it loads and im sure someone in a desperate position could survive if they can maintain the plants and grow the correct food.
I recommend potatoes in a large bag, carrots in a raised bed somewhere, strawberries on a shelf, peppers and tomatoes plants are easy to maintain as well

Potatoes, budget pasta, and rice for your main food source. Combine those with canned tuna, eggs, and the fattiest (cheapest) ground beef to splurge on one day a week. It should give you enough variety to change what you eat day to day so it is more tolerable.

ramen - about 6/1.00

It won't feel like that after not eating for a while you feel nothing no pain no hunger no problems just tired and a little dizzy. If you NEED to eat your only optinon is dumpster diving but i always starved rather than that i find it disgusting.

Oatmeal. not the flavoured individual sachet shit, a big bag of the plain stuff. Cheap per serve, fills you up.

Go to a Safeway (or its equivalent where you live) before closing, and buy a whole rotisserie chicken for 4 dollars. Should last you several meals / couple days.

Eat it over rice, or with potatoes. (Also hella cheap. Sliced potatoes with salt and pepper and maybe a little oil will keep you fed for days if you're desperate enough)

Or refrigerate it and mix it with apples and cranberries and mayonnaise to make a nice chicken salad sandwich. Shit, throw some walnuts in there too.

Buy some lettuce (not iceberg lettuce, that shit has no nutrients whatsoever, it's like 99.5% water, which is why its so cheap, and why every shit restaurant sells it, and why any half decent restaurant will have a salad with real greens). Make a salad with it.
>>
>>702541968
Get as many variants of frozen asia veggies and the biggest bag of rice you can find, a bottle of soy sauce and eggs and then make a stir fry dish.

You can literally eat for 1-2$ a meal with that and it's nutritious.

You can also try pasta, canned pasta sauce, grated parmegiano, tuna and make a pasta dish but it's probably more expensive.

Eat sweetend porridge (water not milk) for breakfast, can't really get cheaper than that.

Buy high protein cheap shit like yams or peanuts, peanut butter works too, then buy a shit ton of cheap filler carbs so you don't feel starving all the time, raman, egg noodles, pasta, rice, etc. I used to eat peanute buttered noodles twice a week, it keeps you full because of the protein and the carbs give you some energy. Pasta is great too, take some of that beef and mix it with sauce in a pan plus a little olive oil and save the extra sauce you didn't put on the pasta to give other meals a little protein.

Buy rice, butter and great northern beans and drinks, take it slow with the eating but you should be fine cause you can make some dank ass food with just beans and rice.

THE ONLY THING YOU NEED TO SUSTAIN YOURSELF IS BEANS AND RICE.

I'm assuming you have a single pot to cook these in and a stovetop on which to cook them.

Beans and rice. IF you're really on a super tight budget, load up on tons and tons of the cheaptes of both that you can stomach, and then anything you want in terms of "variation" can be bought as additions to the beans 'n' rice recipe.

wut
so with your maths i can turn that $80 into $160 by eating once every 4 days
so thats 7.5 days of $160

1 dollar/packet of noodles or 50 cent ramen packets where the juice can be used to do multiple packets, saving the packets for other things

peanut butter and honey is high nutrition value but not a primary source for more than 3 days a week because of buildup, good for 1 dollar loaf bread

literally an ounce of honey can do three PB+honey sandwitches

eggs and bananas are the rest of this circle, unless you're a canned bean guy... I like canned chili with elbow noodles with the necessary water added, almost triple the volume of food of one can

walmart 1 dollar spices can last months of continued use, you can order from walmart

a costco card can get you: 10 dollar 1/2 gallon honey, 9 dollar 1/2 gallon peanut butter, 50 pack ramen for under 15 dollars, gallon bean cans for 7 bucks, 20lb rice bags for 14 bucks, 80 cent bread, 2 dollar/gallon of gas at their pumps

small mayo cans, some juice spices, boiled eggs, peanut butter, honey, powder spices, most noodles, etc don't need refridgeration and just need a fire source for absolute poorness

he did use bacteria. from soil samples they had brought with them for growing experiments. once those bacteria died due to a hull breach he stopped growing them. I read the book and saw the movie maybe some things werent so clear in the movie but all of it was pretty much possible. it took a lot of time, shit and the right bacteria to make the soil fertile. besides "contains low oxygen, too much co2 for a plant to live" is bullshit since he didnt fucking grow them outside and if he tried the bigger problem would have been the fucking cold and lack of a thick athmosphere first and the rest second.

Soup and Rice

Soup is mostly water, which you always have if you live in an apartment.

Rice and Spaghetti is super cheap where I live, and is mostly what I eat when on budget.

I don't know where you live. But consider doing something to get a little extra $, offer help (I know it's cringy to ask, get over it).

I suppose if you are really desperate, go steal in grocery stores, whilst you are buying. Just an extra can or two somewhere.
