Quick and Simple Meals to Make When You Have No Money

Introduction:

It is always nice to be able to make quick, easy meals. It all depends what these meals will be, though, depending on the amount of money that you have. At times, you will need to find some quick and simple meals to make when you have no money. Here is a list to help you out for when that happens.

Ramen Noodles

Ramen noodles is always one of the top five meals to make when you want to make something quick and easy, especially if you have no money.

Chances are that you already have some of this in your cupboard. Most people do. They usually do not make this that often, but it should be there.

Macaroni and Cheese or Grilled Cheese

Macaroni and cheese is another favorite quick and easy meal. It is very simple to make, and it comes in really handy as a meal for when you have no money.

Most everyone enjoys macaroni and cheese. If you have a can of tuna laying around, you may wish to throw that in.

Depending on how broke you are, you may want to save that can of tuna for another quick and simple meal to make.

Getting a little carried away here, I would also like to add that even grilled cheese sandwiches can make great, quick, simple meals, too.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches

An all-time favorite quick and easy meal that you might prefer to make when you have no money would be them plain old peanut butter sandwiches.

If you check your fridge, you may be able to find some sort of lunch meat in there to make regular sandwiches, too.

If you have no money, it kind of depends on what you have on hand to decide what sort of meals that you can make.

It would be a good idea to budget your money, and eat meals like this at least twice a week anyway. It really would not hurt.

Pancakes and Eggs

You can always make breakfast sort of meals, such as, pancakes and eggs. Most people really enjoy having pancakes and eggs at any time of the day. They really do not have to be made only for breakfast.

Pancakes and eggs are both very inexpensive foods. They are also foods that most people already have in their homes, and this would be a great, quick, simple meal to make when you have no money.

Cereal

Cereal is always a great, quick, simple meal to make when you have no money. Any kind of cereal that you can find will do. You really cannot make a meal any quicker or easier than this.

Surely, you must have cereal in your house even if you don't have any money.

Look around, and see what you have. You should be able to get by quite easily for at least a week without having to go out and buy something to make as a meal.

When you are going through hard times, do not be too picky on what to make for meals to please yourself and your family. They will understand, and they will be happy to eat anything that you choose to make for them.

    I recommend trying to keep beans and rice on hand. Rice can be a breakfast food with milk and sugar added or it can be a meal. Bean soup is pretty filling too.
