As I have been jobless with $40 to my name for the last month, I have had to partition my money to survive.
I currently eat once every 72 hours. My weight is dropping quick.
In order to survive, I consume hamburger helper for each meal. ($2.49 per pound of gas station ground beef, and $1 per box of hamburger helper). This puts my food cost at roughly $40 per month.
But Matthew, does hamburger helper get boring?
No. It doesn't. I supercharge it by adding new ingredients such as:
- Green Peppers
- Red Peppers
- Season Salt
- Crushed Red Pepper
There is a package of frozen trio blend of green, red pepper, and onion in my freezer that should last me until I get money for my birthday. Obviously I have enough seasoned salt and crushed red to last for a long time.

Matthew, what is the point of this thread?
It's obvious, this thread proves that the federal minimum wage is a living wage, so long as you create the proper environment for yourself. You can eat well and even thrive off of $40 per month with relative ease. You simply need to be smart with your money, and to be comfortable with extreme hunger.
Thanks for reading.
