Now I don't know that I'd call it "poor people food" but something about throwing away what I've paid for really grinds my gears. Where it gets REALLY expensive is when you throw it away rather than use it.

Labor day I made a vow to stop buying my lunch at work. (around $8 a day) Gas prices are killing me and with my long communte (an hour each way) I had to find a way to cut back. I figured $8 a day x 20 days of work a month = 3 tanks of gas!!
I bring those cup of noodle things (3 for a dollar), microwave popcorn (got it on sale for 5 bags for a dollar), spaghettios, ravioli etc ($1 a can). I spend on average $1.50 for my lunch each day. I do treat myself every other Friday on payday and buy my lunch.

Stay away as much as possible from anything pre-prepared. Dried beans, pastas, and rice are your friends. Most people throw away a horrific amount of food.

Roast of corned beef turns into hash.
Don't know where you live, but in Massachusetts, we almost need a bank loan to buy a corned beef! Gawd, I would eat that every day if it wasn't so frikkin' expensive.
