But my body didn’t.

Hi, my name is Matt. I’m a 29-year-old quasi-adult who hemorrhages money on food, and I’m trying to change.
I work in New York City, home of $16 movie tickets, $8 Bud Lights, and rent that forces me to live on the Jersey side of the river — which I prefer anyway — but regardless, shit is expensive.
When you combine New York's cost of living and panic attack–inducing grocery stores with my work schedule and aversion to cooking it's a recipe for disaster. It's easy to fall victim to the comfort of ordering delivery and going out to eat too often. Money quite literally vanishes from my bank account.

So I decided to revisit a time in my life when I had next to no expendable money and I could stretch $20 for a couple weeks — college.
Yep, I took budgeting tips from this handsome guy with a drawn-on green mustache.
