Day 2: Food Stamp Challenge

If I had to sum up my biggest complaint about living on a limited budget, it would be the lack of variety. I had the same thing for lunch and dinner. I had coffee at work and water.

Here’s what I made:

Breakfast:  Oatmeal   (25 cents)

Lunch:        Corn tortilla, black beans, shredded mozzarella cheese, chicken ($1.17)

                     Egg    (18 cents)

                     Snack:        Half Cliff bar (50 cents)

Dinner:      Corn tortilla, black beans, shredded mozzarella cheese, chicken   ($1.17)

                   Egg   (18 cents)

TOTAL: $3.45

   I was about a $1.50 under budget. So I did reserve that for a Diet Coke.
