Man spends $30 on food for a month

What an interesting idea.:

For the month of November, I’m only spending $30 on food. The only exception will be things that are freely available to the average person (salt taken from restaurants, sauce packets from Taco Bell, free coffee from an office). Buying in advance is fine, but at the end of the month, it all has to add up to $30 or less.

My favorite part is that he took the time to write it up and share what he found.

  1. I followed this series a month ago. It’s an interesting read. I especially enjoyed the conclusion. As a budding journalist, I found his resolve to experience situations through a new perspective very admirable.

  2. Ill remember this everytime Im down to my last 20 between paychecks.

  3. Food is without question my largest single expense next to rent, but I am more or less OK with keeping it that way. Let’s call the amound that I spend each month on my cuisine “X” – I would say that it’s worth sacrificing $(X-30) in savings in order to not feel like I am starving or eating rice three meals a day.

    Still, it is an interesting challenge.

  4. Unfortunately, the way he approached it was NOT the best. It IS possible to eat on $1 a day without resorting to ramen/mashed potato nastiness.

  5. But instead of criticizing…what would you do? And I find it more impressive that he actually did something (whether you agree with it or not) than just talking about it.

  6. I thought it was interesting, but not a unique idea. Morgan Spurlock did the 30 days of eating McDonalds (Supersize Me) and has since spun it off into an excellent (IMO) FX show called 30 days. In one episode he and his wife try to get by for a month on minimum wage.

  7. I agree it was an interesting experiment–I just think that it MIGHT have been more usefulin an educational sense if he done it more… thoughtfully. It’s not an easy task, that’s for sure.

  8. Honestly, this doesn’t phase me at all. I do this on a fairly regular basis whenever I’m low on cash.

    Back when I was first starting out as a freelancer, I didn’t earn much money. I lived off $30/mo groceries frequently. I keep the habits still to this day, although I’ve added more luxury. I’m also feeding two now.

    My trick is to cook everything in bulk from scratch.

  9. Interesting story. I’d be interested in what happened after he went back to his normal diet….I’d also like to hear from some of the folks who say they can eat healthier on a dollar a day….

  10. Yeah it does remind me a lot of the mcdonald skit or whatever
