$5 a day? Hah! Amateurs! I can live off 20 cents a day!

Breakfast: Breakfast pastry and coffee from the waiting area of the car dealership down the street, set out for people waiting on auto repairs. Cost: Nothing

Lunch: Chile beef ramen and a glass of water. Cost: 10 cents

Mid afternoon snack: Take the Marlboro plant tour. Obtain a free carton of cigarettes at the end of the tour. Sell to some smoker right outside the plant for 15 bucks. Spend $5 on a value meal from McDonald's. Net gain: $10.

Dinner: Creamy chicken ramen washed down with $10 worth of beer. Cost: $10.10

Total cost at end of day: 20 cents.
Oooh well done

Heh, what can I say. When your base tuition is over 37 thousand dollars a year and you live in an expensive city, you learn a couple of tricks along the way :P

I always thought that if times got really tough and I was struggling, I could always live off ramen noodles.
