Oh, and being a vegetarian is cheap?
A bag of Doritos is I think about 4 dollars, 3 20 oz sodas a day is not cheap either. I can get grassfed beef for 5 dollars a pound. If I could afford to buy a freezer I could get it even cheaper. A can of sardines for about 1.50. My wife and I and our son don't live on much. after taxes, health insurance, retirement we take home about 3200.00 a month
I don't eat out, I eat leftovers on top of a sweet potato for lunch. but others at work (I work for the Feds) buy junk every day for their snacks and lunch. total must be 8 to 12 dollars a day.
