    It would be a weekly thing for me if I could afford anything other than 9p noodles and tesco value bread.

    We barely ever had Sunday lunch. In fact we never really had any family lunch. Occasionally we would, or have a fry-up but it wasn't at all seasonal.
    That's how it was before mam died. Usually a full breakfast on a saturday morning just in time to eat it before Gamesmaster came on C4. Then my sister took up swimming and mam got ill and it never happened again

    9p noodles? You should get supernoodles probably better quality and in Iceland you can get 5 for £2

    I know that feeling.

    Buy chilli flakes cheap and add them to the noodles - also cheap brown sauce.

    Supernoodles are much better, but that is still 80p a meal, which is far too expensive for me at the moment when I can get the same meal for 18p. I am exagerating, but not by a long way. If there is a cheaper version of something, I will get the cheaper version

    Yup, I need to get some spice. I don't like brown sauce though.

    BBQ works too.

    It's all cheap stuff that adds flavour to essentially flavourless noodles.

    Better than no meals.

    Good job I like toast.

    I hate running out of food and having 0 money. Then you are in trouble. I try to, when I do have money, buy lots of tins of soup and such for these occasions. I currently have 30 or so which would reasonably last a week or so.

    Noodles are my prefered 'Oh ****, I have neither food nor money!' food, hence why I'm living off them at the moment.

    As Paddy says, better than no food. 9p noodles help me survive when if I had baught expensive food I would have already run out and be starving by now.

    I often do noodles as well, and anything that can last a long time. Cheap porridge/pasta for example.

    I've got in a fair amount of pasta as well. They should have a TV show where people from rich backgrounds have to try and survive off, say £20 a week (my current budget after rent, for a month. It would be quite interesting to see how quickly they starved.

    Indeed, it would be hilarious.

    If you don't laugh you are probably dead :rofl:

    How the hell are you in that situation where £2 means so much? Do you go to university? Do you have a job? Support from the Government? :confused:
