If You Were Broke For The Week, What Would You Buy?

sisterfunkhaus | Nov 9, 2012 05:49 PM

I had to cut back to part-time hours at work because I am getting my master's degree, and we are having one of those weeks where we don't have much until payday--$50 for food to be exact. I already spent it, but I bought what many would consider luxury items. I was thinking about it and though that surely I am not the only one who would spend their last penny on things like good bread for toast, imported butter, coffee, real cream, and wine.

It made me curious about how others would do it, if you only had $50 to spend, but had some food in the pantry, what are your "must haves" to get you by until pay day?
