|I go through periods of being either upper middle class or borderline-homeless poor, depending on what job I have at the moment. Right now I'm pretty far on the poor end. So I often weigh my food purchases by the price-per-pound at Food Lion. In terms of premade, heat-and-eat vittles, it's hard to beat the Food Lion brand pizzas. They're the most mediocre pizzas you'll ever eat, but at ~$1.30/lb they're pretty damn cheap. Anybody have any suggestions for very cheap, yet edible, meals?|
Well, when I was a grad student I made too little money to even file income taxes, and we frankly ate a lot of rice and beans. It's not that expensive to add a little chicken to that. Mexican food in general is a really good bet on a poverty budget.
If you have a bit more time, fried rice is easy and yummy, and you can make a massive batch of it in 30~40 minutes.
It's not hard to eat decently on meager amounts of money, if you know what you're doing. People who think that being poor means you have to eat kraft mac & cheese all the time lack any imagination.
