There comes a time in every Man’s life where he has to question whether or not he is mentally deficient. That day came yesterday when I joined a few co-workers in a challenge to survive on only $25 for the week. Now I’m the type that goes out to lunch most days (yeah, I know its expensive but I’m lazy!) and I just don’t know if it was wise of me to enter this contest! But I have discovered one thing. You don’t know what metal you are made of until its tested! All of a sudden secret skills you’ve long thought sealed away, awaken to help you in time of need! Why did I bust out the West-Indian fried dumpling’s with cornmeal and some nice cabbage for lunch today! Didn’t know I had it in me! Plus I have soup (with the boiled dumplings) just to switch it up. I bought all the groceries with 20 bucks. Lets see how I do.
Update: Turns out the challenge started after I bought groceries so I got a clean slate!!
Day 1: Lots of cabbage and a few dumplings and half a veggi-patty. Satisfying but needed a snack at the end!
Day2: Same thing from Day One. 2 dollars in snacks and 2 dollars in fries from McD’s!
Day3: Soup time! 1.50 on donut and 5 bucks for Burger King…couldn’t help it ya’ll!
Day4: Forgot my soup at home…but luckily I was taken out for pizza!!! Woohoo! $0.00 bucks baby!
Update: D’oh! Had to return the favor…at least it was falaffel and it was cheap.hehe spent $5.00
Day5: Had a Subway Sandwich. Good thing they are cheap! about $4.50
Day6: Ate the rest of my soup. That stuff was good! Can’t spend much more money since I realized I’m right at $20.00
