Bachelor on the Cheap Challenge: $50 to eat for a week, Day 3, 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.

20170522_081626It's Day 3 already!  Here's breakfast:  I enjoyed some hash browns with a couple of eggs over easy, a simple breakfast but a satisfying one.  And like the meal itself, the preparation was simple, a little canola oil to fry things up with and some salt and pepper.  It only took me about 10 minutes to prepare.  The hash browns I bought for $1 at Dollar Tree and the eggs were purchased at Aldi - 79 cents a dozen.   This meal cost me about $1.25 to prepare and that included my morning coffee.  TIP:  Have you ever shopped at an Aldi?

Meal totals for the day:  

Breakfast:  $1.25

Cumulative total for the Challenge:

Day 1:  $7.25
Day 2:  $6.90
Day 3:  $1.25 (breakfast)

Grand Total:  $15.40 so far and under budget!  Holding off on the Ramen.....  for now.... 

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