What do you do when you don't have money to eat out but don't feel like cooking?

Do you ever just feel like not cooking? It's Tuesday, so we don't have money to just get a pizza or anything (payday isn't till Thursday and it was rent week so we have $0). I have not been hungry for anything lately, just tired of all food. What do you do when you don't feel like cooking what's on the menu, but don't have money to eat out? My hubby will be upset if I don't have dinner started when he gets home... but the thought of cooking is making me sick! LOL

  • I cook anyways for my hubby and I eat whatever I find appetizing, even if it is just cereal.

  • On days like that, I generally heat up leftovers for DS, or he eats canned soup or Spaghettios (which he sees as a special treat). DH and I generally have cereal or something. :)

  • I made a tuna casserole, on the stove, not in the oven, it's too hot for that. Maybe make a big salad with lots of veggies if you have them. Or you could make BLT's and chips... I usually keep extra bacon on hand and lettuce and tomatoes for a quick meal. Hope i helped, if not, sorry...

  • I'm in the same boat as you. I want pizza or something take out too, but my husband doesn't get paid until Saturday and he has to pay rent Saturday. I don't have any money saved up to go order anything either. Lost my job. So not sure what to make either. Nothing sounds good and I so don't want to cook today. Maybe pasta? I just don't want to make!

  • I just tell them to eat whatever they find that they can make and I make sure to feed our 17 month old. And then I will usually either not eat or grab a bowl of cereal. It doesn thappen often though...cause they get mad over here,LOL.
    But my dh will cook both of us have to feel like not cooking for that to happen.
