Can you live off $5/week?

This husband and wife team is trying to eat off $10 for two weeks.  They each have their own $10 and their own stash of food. 

It’s interesting because Frank and I were just talking about this on the way to work yesterday.  What would you eat or buy if you had limited funds but access to a kitchen? Here are some of the things that would be on my list:

  • oatmeal
  • lots of beans
  • canned vegetables
  • peanut butter
  • whole wheat bread
  • maybe some bananas
