My 15yo daughter and I are in a motel room and only have a microwave and a toaster oven for cooking. We only have a small, dorm-size fridge for cold storage. For the next 3 weeks we have to make do with about $30 for groceries. All suggestions of cheap, mostly shelf-stable food is appreciated. :-)Answer Question

I have a group that can help you with this. I'd normally send you an invite via pm, but you're anon, so I'll put it here:
Because you only have the minifridge, some ideas there aren't going to be an option, but you should still find some help. In the meantime - potatoes are dirt cheap this week for Christmas - poke with a fork, wrap in a wet papertowel, microwave 5-7 minutes (based on size). Those will be far more filling than processed stuff (and a lot more food for your money). Use those as a base and add on some veggies as you can find them - avoid canned, just get whatever's on sale in the produce section for the week and stretch it out.
