Day 4 of eating on $2 a day


Just eeked-by today at a total of $1.99. My wife made some awesome black bean soup – pretty satisfying. Still find myself thinking of food lots during the day. I think I could do it on a regular basis. The most difficult thing to manage is the convenience factor and the lack of variety. Even on a tight budget in the U.S., there are lots of options – not the case in third world countries (unless there is a Walmart in range.

breakfast:
oatmeal & coffee – total cost $.35

lunch:
peanut butter & banana sandwich – total cost $.50

snack:
fruit/grain bar & tea – total cost $.38

dinner:
black bean soup & tortilla chips – total cost $.76
