The Poor College Student Diet

I woke up this morning looking forward to a typical breakfast but was disappointed to find egg cartons empty and the rest of the fridge barren. This realization became all the more sad when I considered that my first pay check arrives tomorrow and I had $7 in my wallet. I knew getting through the day would take some poor college student ingenuity.

Breakfast: You are sure to lose weight on the fruit for breakfast diet. I was hungry again by the time I arrived to work. Free

Lunch: Junk food at 7-eleven seemed like my quickest and cheapest option but I discovered anywhere they hold large meetings at the office, there will be free food. Free

Snack: High-protein, low-carbohydrate diets are the new coolest thing. Protein repairs body cells, provides a source of energy, and controls many of the important processes in the body related to metabolism. $1

Dinner: When I pulled up to the pick-up window at Wendy's for dinner, I gave a two-for-one coupon for the burgers but neglected to notice the coupon also included a free frosty. 3 items for $1.09!

Final cost: $2.09


  1. you officially lived on 2 dollars today HAHAHA be proud!!

  2. I have been visiting various blogs for my term papers writing research. I have found your blog to be quite useful. Keep updating your blog with in valuable information... Regards

  3. That's great that you survive plus you didn't spend the whole 7 dollars. It is fascinating that when we are so tight with our budget,we end up saving some money. Unlike if we have a lot, we end up losing them all fast!
