A cheap breakfast idea

My cheap breakfast for today is cornmeal porridge. Love it!!! not to mention the ingredients can all be had for under $5.00, and makes quite a few servings.

Back to eating my breakfast!

Ms. Behaving thanks for the warning, cuz girllllllll if you made me spit out my cornmeal porridge we woulda had a problem!!!! LMAOOOOOO

I used to come to work and buy an omelette with toast and OJ every other day, spending almost $6 for JUST breakfast...I wont even tell you how much I used to spend on lunch here in Manhattan.

NOOOOOW...I buy a box of Honey Bunches of Oats (or Cheerios) for $3.99 and it lasts for about seven days. I use the milk at work, so I end up spending less than sixty cents a day for breakfast.

It DOES get boring after a while though!

i do oatmeal in the morning for the same reason - it's affordable!

Ms. Behaving said...


See...something told me I'd better warn some folk!!!

I spend between $3.00 to $5.00 on breakfast daily and if I include lunch and my midday snacks. Shew we're talking roughly $10 or $12 easy per day.

And I have the never to wonder why I'm always cryin' broke.

Psst loan me $5.00.... :-)

Why does your post make me think of Goldilocks? Ha!

Me no like oatmeal. Looks too much like baby food. LOL

Tired of being broke said...

Diva that is the way to go. It really helps!

Sistah Ant I do not like oatmeal that much, but it is cheap and it is good for you.

Ms. Behaving am challenging you to eat breakfast at home 3 days per week. Think you can handle that.
Psst: I only have $10 bucks to my name, LMAO.

Single Ma LMAO @ the goldilocks, only you. Now you got me thinking about it. Damn you, LOL

Your cornmeal porridge is my instant cream of wheat. A box with 10 pouches cost $3.29. That's almost 32 cents per serving and it lasts almost 2 weeks.
