It is not going to be easy for me to make this work really, because I am in a real bind between all of my obligations. I have a pretty heavy class load and of course my job is not all that awesome. It is pretty difficult to work a decent job while going to class full time. I am scraping pennies and I definitely do not go blowing my money. I have to think a lot about just simply saving money on groceries. Of course you have to limit your food choices to simple things when you are on this tight of a budget. I am in the process of cooking up some Ramen noodles right now and I have those on a regular basis. You can get a whole case of the noodles for about ten bucks and obviously all you need is a little boiling water to prepare them. They are not that bad really, but obviously you would prefer to eat something different if you were able to pick and choose any meal that you wanted.
At any rate I buy a pound of sandwich meat from the deli, a loaf of bread and some chicken salad. I will make grilled cheese sandwiches after I run out of meat, which is not that long. Of course this is not very expensive. The meat cost five or six dollars a pound most of the time. I get the cheap bread which is a little bit over a dollar for a loaf and the chicken salad costs around three dollars I think. Once in a while I buy a quart of milk, but that is expensive to buy. Still I like to eat cereal for breakfast every now and again. Still if I get milk I have to use it all or I feel like I have wasted money.
