    You girls need to try again with the budget, Nikki if you take out the extra you spent on your hubby you did awesome and tried really hard!! Fair enough that you all have a great income and can spend lots, but this was a challenge it was meant to be hard there's so many people who don't have the advantages you have and this was only one week, your willpower needs improvement!!

    you guys should not be getting judged by anyone because you are doing it fro content and to show all of your viewers that there are people that live like this that have to live off this kind of money and its not just people that live under the poverty line its also college students. And all thos people have to control them self's and once in a great while they might get a treat of some sort. But all that you guys are trying to say is that you were seeing what it would feel like to be in some one less fortunets shose and its hard.

    $20 a week? did you guys do the math here? thats literally like $3 A DAY. Thats a soda and maybe a granola bar. What would have made more sense was maybe like $100 a week. or heck..even $75-$50. Congratulations, now you know what it feels like to be apart of the welfare system.

    This just isn't safe being preggo. Tho you should naturally be cooking your own food. Just to feed your growing child what you need to, there's no way to do this. I mean even shopping for the week is going to be at least $50 on the cheap.

    I've made $20 in a week last before. Being a low income, completely independent college student can make you creative if you have the discipline, self control and basic knowledge of budgeting. I'd have bought two $1 bags of salad and make 6 salads out of those, bought a $1 dressing if I need,a $2 package of rice can make me a pot and a half, I can get 16 snacks out of $2 worth of granola bars, and I can buy a $0.65 can of apple juice concentrate. I'd have gotten a $1 bag of frozen veggies, a $5 two lb package of chicken breasts, an $0.88 package of pasta, a $0.65 bag of beans, and a $1 head of broccoli. For breakfast I can have a $1.88 18ct package of eggs with a $1 bag of bread for toast and have about $1.50 left over accounting for $0.44 in sales tax. What I bought covered 9 breakfast meals, 6 salads, 10 servings of rice and beans, 3 servings of broccoli, 3 servings of pasta with veggies and 8 servings of chicken to mix and match throughout the week.
    It's a very modest living and you'd have to eat close to recommended serving sizes to make it last even for one person. For two people I'd have to cut out the granola bars and apple juice then add another bag of pasta, a bag of veggies and another bag of beans.The meals would be simple and wouldn't contain a lot of different items but they would be healthy, frugal, and last a week. The basis is to buy on sale, coupon, ration, and buy things that produce the most food for the least money( rice, pasta, beans, certain fruits & veggies) I know they live in Austin and some areas just aren't as affordable for groceries as the groceries in my hood but I think CT and TX both have Save-A-Lot. They definitely would have stretched it further if they hadn't eaten out or bought vending snacks obviously. It's WAY cheaper to eat at home. I'm mostly concerned about people having to live in food deserts.

    I think it’s great you all emphasized gratitude near the end of the vid.
    No judgement. It just seems like you didn’t do the mental and emotional prep before starting the challenge, or maybe that was off camera. It’s tough to follow through using will power alone. That generally sets people up for failure. Also, I think $20/1week was unrealistically low. You all sound like you have quite a healthy amount of disposable income. So maybe $60 or something like that for food would more doable and yet still a challenge. I would consider putting groceries and restaurant food in separate budgets, which could still be a good challenge if the amounts were low enough but still doable. Even $40/$40 or something like that might help you to start off with a belief the challenge can be done.
    I think I would keep gasoline, medical copays, and gifts in separate budgets and put limits on those. Seems like that would make it more worry free.
    Anyway, good luck if you decide to do this again.
