no dis respect,but your recipe for a loaf of bread costs 10 bucks! The best thing low income people need to do is to learn how to shop properly!My ex
wife's kid,he has a drug induced mental retardation due to huffing paint...has no "life skills".He gets hungry,spends 10 bucks at burger king 4 times
a day.IF he knew how and where to shop,and learn to cook,he could live on 50 bucks a week!
Honestly,IF I could get thru to him how to shop,where to shop,how to budget his money,he'd be fine.A bag of potato's at the 99 cent store is the
same as a bag at wal mart for 4.99. 3 bell peppers for 99 cents is the same as 1 for 1.29 at wal mart!
Fast food is not cheap food! You have to pay for the convienence.Go into a circle k sandwich cooler,you can get 2 egg mcmuffins for 3 bucks...can
you get that at the drive thru? NOPE!
My budget menu idea's?
1. learn to cook
2.learn to shop
3.learn to cook with cheap foods
4.buy day old or discounted items and cook them first
5.learn to re use leftovers
6.make only what you can eat to avoid leftovers
So,learn to cook,learn to shop,buy only what you can eat,buy only what you like...
I can eat like a king for 20 bucks a week at the 99 cent store.
