feed your family in your state for a week? Why or why not? What would you eat? would you eat healthy? Can it be done? I always thought it could not until a few years back when I was reading a blog and found out it could be done anywhere. I was shocked I was sure Id be eating hot dogs, and box macaroni for dinner but I was surprised to see women all over the world women doing this and some eatting some organic stuff too. Anywho just wondering if anyone in here could do it?

I could, but only for about 3 or 4 days...it wouldn't be the healthiest of meals, but it wouldn't be pure junk either. I have a family of 5, with 3 girls who eat like boys lol

How long is the 50 dollars supposed to last? That will determine my answer.

i can for about 2 weeks if not 3. my years of being a single mom taught me you can make a dollar out of 15 cents.

Now exactly how would you do that? What would be on the menu?

Mmmm it could be possible? I have a family of 5. I can make a couple meals that can turn into leftovers. But $50 is not a lot!

Yea!!!!! That is awesome!!! Most don't think they could do that. I have done it and surprisingly with healthy food. YOu can do it for the whole week, but one meal would be soup with no meat, just broth. I have learned to have 5 meals with 1 whole chicken, or 6 chicken breast. I am always shocked and surprised its possible. We are switching to gluten free so now I really need to re-budget, because the gluten free stuff is expensive so I am gonna try to reduce our budget big time.
