Could you live off $60o for 3 months

if you didn't have to pay rent, phone bill, insurance or any other bill other than gas and food for yourself?

  • We have a long commute that would eat up most of that. We could eat pretty cheaply, though.

  • just gas and food and the $400 is for all 3 months or $400 per month for 3 months... If it is $400 total for 3 months. no way. unless we had a food bank very close to our house.

  • You changed it to 600, if 600 then maybe. But the original $400 you posted, no.

  • $200/month for me to buy gas and food?? i could even do food for everyone on that amount! i don't drive much but my husband commutes so i am not really sure how much he spends on gas/month. but i could definately buy food for all 5 of us ....i don't spend much more than that as it is.

  • okay so just food and gas for $200 a month. Yes... It would be tight but doable.

  • Ha, no way! We spend $400-$500 a month on food. Gas is about the same. However, if your saying just for me, not the family, then I could defiantly live off $600 for 3 months. I barely drive, and the reason why we spend so much for food is diapers, wipes, dog food, cat food, litter...
