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

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.

It's Day 4 and time for lunch!  It doesn't really get any cheaper than this.... The boss bought lunch!  There was a company meeting today, lunch was provided and so I enjoyed some fried chicken, a biscuit, a few steak fries and some mac & cheese.  Not a real healthy meal, but an almost free one!  The only thing I had to shell out any money for was my drink, a Big Q Diet Mountain Dew at QuikTrip for 96 cents.    

Meal totals for the day:  

Breakfast:  $1.00
Lunch:  $0.96

I don't think I'll have any problems staying under budget with dinner!

Cumulative total for the Challenge:

Day 1:  $7.25
Day 2:  $6.90
Day 3:  $6.55
Day 4:  $1.96 (breakfast & lunch)

Grand Total:  $22.66 so far and under budget!  Holding off on the Ramen.....  for now.... 

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