for some reason, the bank has charged me a 130 euro fee, I'm pretty sure it was a mistake, but if it wasn't, I have exactly 20 euros to feed myself for the rest of the month. What am I going to do? what food do I buy?

EDIT: UPDATE

god dammit, whew!!

it was a bank mistake after all... I now have 200 euros for the next two weeks

thanks for all the advice, guys, I'll bookmark this thread in case I ever get into trouble again

hugs for all!

A gigantic bag of pasta, a bottle of olive oil, and some spices. Cook the pasta every day. Use olive oil and spices as your dressing.

A month? Don't you get your paycheck every two weeks?

Friends? Make sure you get nutrients from vegetables, they're usually quite cheap. Perhaps also a loaf of bread and peanut butter.

+1 on the bread idea. My family has been through some hard times before and we made it on eggs for breakfast and egg sandwiches for lunch and dinner. Bread+any type of food you can get alot of for cheap=answer.

ramen. seriously. $10 USD (about 7 euros) will be enough ramen for at least two months

I'm sorry you have to face this difficulty. But tough times turn into good stories to tell. I hope your bank reverses the charges. You shouldn't sit quiet. You should bug the shit out of them until they reverse the charges. If they don't, I hope you get by okay.

After the month is over you'll never be able to eat tuna sandwich again.

1 Onion
1 can of preferred beans (I like red kidney beans, but butter beans are good too)
As many vegetables as you can get
Tin of crushed tomatoes
Some stock (vegetable, beef, whatevs)
Chicken, if you're feeling extravagant
Rice

Chop and fry onion.
Add chicken if you have it.
Add all the vegetables including drained can of beans.
Add tinned tomatoes and stock
Season with whatever you can find in your house (salt and pepper, whatever spices you have laying around)
Let simmer til the vegetables are soft.
Serve with rice. Should be able to make a pot of that at the start of each week to get you through. Stock and chicken can be taken out if you're really desperate.

Get as much fruit and veg as you can. Also, rice/bread/oats to keep you full for longer. Good luck.
