Uhhh, Yeah I'm Taking the $4 a Day Challenge

Posted By on Thu, Sep 20, 2012 at 9:45 AM

The question is, are you? The five-day event put on next week by the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona is probably the only time my finely honed cheapskate skills will ever be openly celebrated, so I'm all over it like a spice packet over Ramen noodles.

And, not to be rude, but if you're one of the people who still believes people on food stamps - now called SNAP benefits - are living it up, here's your chance to prove yourself wrong. $20 bucks a week. Just you and your stomach. Are you ready to rumble?

I'm registered. You can do the same over here. My initial meal plan leans heavily on rice noodles, cheap boxes of macaroni, potatoes and, yes, I will be making sushi mid-week (nori is cheap as hell and nutritious - hallelujah!). I might even toss in a 22-ounce can of cheap beer to cap off the week. It's been a while since I had a Steel Reserve anyway.
