My husband's next payday is the 1st. Until then we have $54 in our bank account and I need to buy groceries today to last us a week. What would you buy to feed yourself, spouse, 2 toddlers and a 9 month old for a week on $50?
I must buy apples, carrots, and cucumbers because those are staples for my toddler's snacks. I do have 2 lbs of hamburger meat in the freezer and 2 chicken breasts, so I may be able to get by without buying meat. But we are out of bread, milk, lunch meat, and potatoes.

Spaghetti or other pasta with the hamburger in the sauce- you can actually make enough to last two days. Flavored rice (like Knorr brand or Rice a Roni) with cut up chicken breasts mixed in and with a side of a veggie. Grilled cheese or other sandwiches and soup. Tuna casserole. Breakfast for dinner- like pancakes, eggs and fried potatoes. Tortillas are pretty cheap and you can make cheese quesadillas by just putting cheese in between two of them and heating it up in a pan or toaster oven... I've been in your shoes- in fact will be next week (we have five people in the family as well) so I can't wait to read some of the replies you get because I know they'll come in handy!
