In light of the recent food posts... I figured this would be kind of funny.

So... You know your broke or live paycheck to paycheck when your pantry contains _______.

Ramen noodles
"canned weenies" (Vienna sausages)
Dry milk

Just in case lol.

I was cleaning my pantry yesterday and giggled about some of the crazy things we have that would be eaten if we ever ran out of food.

We could probably live a few weeks on pancakes and canned fruit.  It would take us quite some time to run out of food though because of our extra freezer and refrigerator.

Nothing! Lol. That's how you know you are REALLY broke, or in my case, that's how you know it's Monday (grocery day!).
