Welcome to part II of the Food Budget Battle! If you missed our last post, a reader of this site – Braden – called malarkey on our blogger friend, Dan Miller, that there’s no way in God’s name you can eat meals for under a dollar (175+ comments so far!).

There’s a beautiful line in the movie We Bought A Zoo that goes like this: You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.

I’ve caught myself thinking something satisfying lately every time I see someone older than me with something I badly desire (paid off house, killer career, the life of retirement). And that is: “I’d rather be young” It’s kinda mean, but I can’t tell you how much it pipes down my jealousy! We’re all gonna get old at some point, of course – no way around […]
