I know exactly where you are wasting a good chunk of your money. Lunch. Going out to eat for lunch costs at least $6, but is probably more like $7-10 if you don’t eat Subway and Burger King every day. Using my tuna system, you can save almost $100 a month if you pack your lunch four times a week.
What you need:
2 boxes of Creamy Broccoli Tuna Helper ™: $1.58 each at Target. (Tuna helper FAQ)
2 cans of tuna: $0.60 each. Get the store brand for extra savings.
2 cups of milk: $1
6 tablespoons of margarine: $0.25
A microwave at work: free
Since one box of helper is good for two lunches, the above list produces four lunches at a grant total cost of $5.61. That is $1.40 a lunch!! You can’t beat that! My plan allows you to eat American commercial food at third world prices.
Let’s be conservative and say you spend $7 a day on lunch. With four days of tuna helper eating, you will save $90 a month, or $1,080 a year. I’ve been doing this for three years now (no, I don’t have mercury poisoning), which has pushed my total savings to over $3,000. I have yet to meet someone who could make the tuna plan a part of their life, but with so many people in debt, all I gotta say is… let tuna pay it off.
