>tfw surviving on peanut butter and hotpockets
Fuck you and your tfwnogf nonproblems, dipshits
I know that feel.
I was so poor I ended in the street for a night.
Also once I had to survive on nothing but scrambled eggs and oranges because I couldn't literally afford anything else (oranges because it was winter, so better to eat vitamin C or die out of a cold).
>tfw own apartment
>tfw money to buy take out any day
And yet last night sleeping in the floor next to my onetis while all I ate was some Pepsi he bought felt better than any daybof loneliness :)
You are joking? You could've got good grades and went to college, and you would be middle class or better now. People without a gf didn't choose to be this way.
It would be cheaper to if you learned to cook.
Then you could make your own "hotpockets" for a fraction of the cost, among many cheap things.
Being a poorfag all my life it was drilled into me that knowing how to cook is vital and try not to spend money or premade shit unless you work so hard you don't have time or energy to cook.
Scrambled eggs, Oatmeal, Beans, Rice.
Pasta soup can also be a good alternative, you can make plenty for relative little cost. The downside of it is that if you don't have a fridge you have to reheat it plenty so it lasts. You can make it with tomato if you have spare cash or simply with knorr or similar if you don't have much cash.
>buying hotpockets and peanut butter to live off
I suspect you're not poor because of misfortune, you're obviously a fool.
Cheap-ass noddles or rice are the most energy you can get for the price, buy a load of them to avoid hunger.
To avoid malnutrition, bulk-buy eggs, they have a lot of what your body needs. There's lots of ways to prepare eggs if you want variety.
Add fish and greens (green cabbage is good) once a week if you can afford them and you have successfully avoided death by stupidity.

It's a pretty bizarre situation desu. I even tried talking about it with social workers and stuff, but they can't really help me at all.
I had to ask for refugee with an ex boss I had. He let me sleep in his house.
He said come to bed, but I said fuck that shit nigga, I am not getting raped.
I slept in the floor during that time.
I slowly worked my way out from that misery for a few months until my mother took me back into the house.
I know that you step into it and eventually find a seat, but how do you buy a ticket? Does cash work? Is it only debit card? Do they accept credit cards? How do I tell the guy I want to get off? What if I get lost and don't know where I am?
Try living outside in the winter for three month catching and eating the fat squirrels that couldn't get away. I lived off acorns I dug up when I couldn't catch anything and drank water from a creek.
I don't even want to hear it. Suffering is relative, faggot. I pulled myself up and now I'm a richfag.
peanu butter and jelly is not that bad, suck it up. earn money and eat better. i personally look for sales on campbell's chunky soups where they're 1.50 each. oatmeal with dried raisins and brown sugar is not a bad breakfast meal. canned fruit can be found in sales and on the cheap. food is fucking cheap bro. the fact that you're complaining about that tells me you don't buy your own fucking health insurance. thats what fucking kills me now.
seriously fuck obama so goddamn much man.
What you're essentially saying is: "oh god I have to work like everyone else but with a huge safety net so I've got no money worries"
Sit down for a minute and think about your situation. Surely it's irrational to feel hard done by in your position? You likely have problems but they're not about the money because you sound very secure. Consider what's actually making you feel bad.
>REEEEE I DESERVE A GF
most bullshit thing ever, even if you parents told you everyone should have a gf at some point (and you consider your parents to be the more mature, more educated) don't fucking believe them.
a girlfriend, especially pre-marriage is a fucking luxary.
you need to have a car
you need to have a place
you need to have a job
on paper its basic but lets face it, that's alot shit especially for someone under 30
you must not live in the US. i live off of cheap food and less than 20,000 dollars a year. i never go hungry.
300 cals per meal is hungry little chinaman tier. i ate that when i was like three years old.
I dont know. Just bought an apartment with the money (1 year ago). maybe ill sell in some years and buy a small plot of land out in nowhere and then invest 95% of the money
Im a robot not a fucking chad normiefag no money will make me happy
You are a fucking idiot, OP. There are a lot better, cheaper sources of food for you if you know how to properly cook.
>Get 15lb bag of rice for really cheap for $20
>use it as filler
>lasts for 6 months
>Get oats for $2
>get many breakfast from it
>buy chicken breasts
>20 servings for $7
And that's just the start. Sure, some taste bland, like lima beans. But that's what spices are for.
You got yourself to blame for being a poorfag.
>Im a robot not a fucking chad normiefag no money will make me happy
Exactly my point, you were complaining about your financial situation when it's not really a problem for you. You're fixating on the money again by saying "no money will make me happy".
>beans and rice would be cheaper
This OP, stop being a fat fuck and ditch the hot pockets. I survived for months in college on nothing but rice, beans, hot sauce, and peanuts and caffeine powder.
>buy chicken breasts
That's not how you save money. Whole chickens are usually cheaper for the amount of meat (as long as you're not a fussy faggot who only easts breast and drumstick), supermarkets often have deals on whole chickens, and you can make stock from the bones and other inedible pieces to give flavour to some other meals.
This, also buying a big box of oatmeal. It's very cheap, filling and you can flavor it with your peanut butter. I can't say beans enough. Buy beans. Kale is very nutrient-rich and literally costs a dollar for a fresh bunch.
Beans+Vegetable broth+Kale in a slowcooker is a cheap and nutritious meal. This will cost you ~3$ for 5+ servings.
Been there many times OP. Block of cheese and no individual slices, eggs, bread, cheap boxed Mac & cheese (should be like $.60 for a box). check your local "hood" every weekend someone will be giving out free bread. Don't listen to the idiot saying buy the whole chicken, no one wants to deal with an entire bird, breast are a better investment if you lack time. Batter for pancakes is cheap too but pancakes are fucking disgusting
And it seems very reasonable to me that if you want to save money, you'd raise your own chickens. After all, you also get eggs out of the deal, along with fertilizer to plant into the garden to grow more cheap food.
Growing your own veg is pretty good actually, if you're luckily to have enough open space to make it worthwhile. And I know you're being facetious, but unless you're working non-stop, you have time to cook a chicken one evening, and the meat will last you several days, meaning you have more time on those other days. All while saving money.
