  • Yeah, its possible.

    You'd have to be frugal about spending. I mean, are we assuming that you have no expenses? What are you spending the $80 on?

    Need a little bit more detail.

  • If you mean 80 for blow money then yes. I have had to make $7 last for 1.5 weeks before. But for food, gas, fun money I could make 80 go a long way.

  • No, I could not. Besides the debt that I'm currently paying, I am paying for the household, utilities, insurance, and groceries. Not to forget the fact my daughter is an American teenager, that every hair on her head must be in its perfect place. So I have to consider her school clothes, athletic equipment, her flute, and other personal items.

  • If all my bills were paid, then yes, I could live on $80 for 4 days. I've lived on less than that before for a week.

    I might not like it, but its not impossible. When you don't have, you learn to make do with what you DO have.

  • Girl when I first got married my husband and I were so broke we lived off of 40 dollars for 2 weeks. My hubby wasn't getting BAH right away so it was so hard. Seriously the dollar tree is a miracle I have fixed many meals with just stuff I bought from them!

  • We live like that all the time!! Right now we have 40 till Friday. 20 will be for a full tank which will last till Friday, and the other 20 will be for whatever misc item we need - toilet paper, milk, or whatever.

    UGH!
