Could your family live on $51/day?

All our bills are paid for the month and this is what's left for the 31 days in May. It will be tough, but we will manage. So how much do you have per day after bills?

No chance.  That wouldn't fill up my gas tank.

ETA:  I totally mis read that ... I thought you meant $51 for the entire month!

I think I could make that work if I had no other bills to pay.  Thats $350 in spending money a week.

It doesn't fill ours either, but we don't get gas daily. We have $1,600/for the month for food, gas and other things.

$51 a day??? Or do you mean a month??

When we were a family of four, we spent about threemonths living on $40 a week. We had to buy gas AND food with that. We managed.

If you mean $51 for the entire month, we could manage for onemonth, maybe two because of the staples in our pantry. But that would be extremely hard.

It's going to be tought for you to live off of 1581 after paying your bills? Good grief, what in the heck do you do, eat out 3x a day?

$51 per day?  That's $1500 per month.  I think a lot of women on CM live on less that that each month and still have to pay rent and bills.

51 per day, or per month? Per day, that's easy. Per month, it'd be hard... I'd hit up food banks. I only have less than $250/month, but that's not including my credit card bills, and whatever bill that's unexpected
