Eat well for cheap

It’s that time of year – the time of year when the loan money starts running out. Students all over the country are scraping the bottom of their bank accounts to make rent and constructing Christmas gifts out of macaroni and shoe boxes.

In b-school, we’re living off the last of the corporate food and giveaways from the companies who came to campus to recruit. That means many of us will be subsisting on Hamburger Helper, Heinz ketchup and Fruit Roll-Ups until we go home for the holidays.

Which is why I thought this blog by some folks who are trying to eat well on $50 a week might prove helpful. They claim they’re not just eating, but eating well. Check out this Time interview with the bloggers which also includes links to several other cheap eating options.

You’ll thank me when Mom’s Thankgiving leftovers run out.
