The question is what are some of the wacky things you have done to make ends meet? I remember one time buying $20 of groceries at Dollar General and making it last for two weeks. Bologna and Ramen for two weeks, but we survived! That is why I love these stories because it shows your struggles while not quitting and attaining your goals!

User ElectricWorm shares their experience:
One time in college I was so broke that I walked around the campus parking lot one night looking for change so I could go get some food. I needed around $1.00. I guess I looked suspicious walking around the parking lot with a flashlight because a cop pulled up and asked me what I was doing. When I told him he laughed, then drive me to the store and bought me an entire combo meal. Ever since then I will randomly show up at least twice a year with dinner for the night shift officers.

I needed clothes that badly, so I went home got a garbage bag, and brought them back to wash them. I still have them. They're good pants.
