Bachelor on the Cheap Challenge: $50 to eat for a week, Day 4, Breakfast

Mike Thayer 2016 (2) By Mike Thayer

Can you eat for a week on just $50?

Breaking it down by the day, that's about $7.14 per day or $2.38 per meal.

20170523_074647It's Day 4 and time for breakfast!  It doesn't really get any easier than this....  For breakfast I enjoyed a Jimmy Dean Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant.  Nuke one in the microwave per the package instructions and you've got an easy, peasy, SATISFYING breakfast.  And I absolutely love this breakfast option BECAUSE it is such a time saver!  Save time, without sacrificing the YUM factor!  This breakfast cost me $1.  You really can't eat much cheaper than that in a breakfast featuring egg, meat, cheese and bread.  TIP:  A box of Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sandwiches (12 count) costs $11.99 at Costco.  Think about that bachelors, daily breakfast for $1 for almost two weeks!

Meal totals for the day:  

Breakfast:  $1.00

Cumulative total for the Challenge:

Day 1:  $7.25
Day 2:  $6.90
Day 3:  $6.55
Day 4:  $1.00 (breakfast)

Grand Total:  $21.70 so far and under budget!  Holding off on the Ramen.....  for now.... 

$50 to eat for a week, are you up for the challenge?
