Right now, CVS is having an incredible sale. They are selling cans of tuna for only 87 cents. I don’t know about you, but this budgetologist can make a can of tuna into a meal and be full from it until it’s time for the next meal.
Want a cheap ass snack? Or perhaps, a whole lunch? Put some mustard and mayo in there and you’re set. (Get the mayo and mustard from the Cosco lunch stand if you don’t have any and don’t want to pay for it!)
Best of all, you might even be able to get the cans of tuna for free if you use a CVS card.
I had a $5 receipt coupon from CVS after a shopping day. I was able to buy 6 cans of tuna, and got my lunch for the week for free. Make sure to take advantage of these “Extra Bucks” to get free goodies. They’ll go a lot further for you the cheaper items you can get.
Is the tuna the highest quality? No! It’s under a dolla, yo! But…it will be enough for a meal and fill you up. This deal might not last forever, or maybe it will. This budgetologist didn’t check the details of that. Regardless, you’re going to want to hit up CVS right away to get tunalicious.

You gotta love cheap prices, right? Someday my future fiancé will buy my engagement ring from Costco and this bugetologist will know he’s the one because he’s frugal and reasonable.
I remember my first adult purchase was a Costco membership card. I paid $55 for it for the year. They even took my picture and everything. But after a few months, I realized I wasn’t using it and so, in defeat, I returned it like a sucker. I got the money back and quickly my spirits were lifted as I thought about how many Costco hotdogs I could now buy.
Anyway, Costco, like Jack in the Box offers one option that is so cheap this budgetologist takes advantage of it on the regular.
Honestly, tho. A dolla fiddy for a hot dog AND a coke. That’s a frugal lady’s dream. You can even upgrade it to the coveted polish sausage for the SAME DAMN PRICE!
Now remember, when you’re at the condiments portion of the transaction, stock up on that shit! Get enough ketchup, mustard and onions to last the next few weeks. You can then use that to make your own hotdogs at home, put it in deviled eggs, a burger, whatever your heart desires.
In that way you’re saving money on condiments while getting a cheap ass meal at the same time. Score!

Here’s a secret: The budgetologist loves to eat. And I mean LOVES to eat. But, eating is expensive and so are food cravings.
Ever find yourself craving a chocolate bar and ice cream cake and a hot fudge sunday all at the same time? Yeah, you’re not alone.
Indulging on these cravings every time you have them will only dip into your savings, and let’s not dip our spoons for that.
There’s a secret though. It will help you to curb food cravings. Using this secret you can eat a few of your friend’s fries for free instead of going out and buying your own. Aren’t you a good friend?
Here’s what you do: Let’s say your friend is eating delicious french fries and it’s making you want to buy some. Take two of the fattest french fries you can finagle from your friend.
Get a full cup of cold water. Water…is freeeee!
Eat the first french fry slowly. Really enjoy the taste of it. Don’t be distracted as you’re eating it. Focus on the fry. Got it?
Savor it for a minute longer. Then drink the whole glass of water. Even if you’re feeling full and uncomfortable, finish it anyway.
Then take the second french fry and repeat. Eat it slowly and enjoy it.
Now what will this do?
This tricks your stomach into thinking it just consumed a whole bunch of french fries, when really the stupid thing only ate 2! Tricked you, body!
This is a method models use to lose weight and end food cravings but it’s this budgetologist’s trick for saving money on those horrible cravings!
