7 Foods that are The Holy Grail for Broke College Students

We all know the feeling — We just get out of the shower and receive a text from our best friend, “Let’s go out to eat tonight!”

“Sure!” we respond as we check our bank accounts. Oooph. “Actually, I have a ton of homework to catch up on…”

If you’re like me and are maxing on a budget of $12 to spend a week, you’ve got to find some alternatives to save you from starvation. Luckily, “mi grocery list es su grocery list.” You’re welcome.

  1. Literally any kind of Ramen

            Averaging on a cost of 15 cents a package, these goodies are both cheap and easy to make.

  1. Mac and Cheese

            Kraft does it best, and also quick to make.

  1. Granola Bars

            A solid grab-on-the-go breakfast snack, for when you wake up a couple 20 minutes after

            the alarm.

  1. Bagel Bites

            What Pizza Hut? No need for Dominos!

  1. Bread with Peanut Butter/Jam

            Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a classic combo and can serve meals for

            weeks. But don’t stop there, grab some ham/turkey and some cheese while you’re at it!

  1. Instant Oatmeal

            It’s all in the name, and all you need is water/milk! Yes, please.

  1. Fruit

            Both healthy and easily accessible, fruits are a perfect supplement to any meal.
