Feature: Surviving in New York City with just $5

Here's the scenario:

It is Tuesday and you don't get paid until Wednesday.  You have a metrocard (luckily)  but you only have a $5 bill.. You were rushing out the house and didn't pack lunch.. Where do you go?  You are hungry and it is lunchtime... How do you get through the 8 hour day??

1) Thirsty?  Go into a location that has a juice/soda fountain: Burger King, Subways,Blimpies, etc... ask for a cup of ice or water...

2) Google '0.99 pizza.' near your location. yup they exist... Pizza is good, too...

See? You just spent $2 on 2 slices and have free water.. You're feeling content and have $3 left!

Don't like pizza?

In the morning, go to Subways and get an Egg sandwich 6" for $1.99 put whatever you want on it and eat THAT for lunch!!

Hot day? sample some Gelatos or Ice Cream for free... That's 2-3 taste samples per shop that are free!!

Dunkin Donuts now has a customized ice tea special for $0.99.  Yup! That's for ANY size cup, too!!

Stay tuned for more info!!
