The 16-cent lunch

The 16-cent lunch.

Not possible?  Let's explore.

Back in college, I ate quite a number of Ramen noodles.  When we went broke and had to slash even the food budget to the bare minimum, I took a package of these to work.  Their cost.  You guessed it: 16 cents.

If I ate these five-days a week for fifty-two weeks, my lunches would only total a mere $41.60.

For an added feature, brown up a package of hamburger and throw in a handful with the noodles.  At least you'll get a bit of protein while you're at it.
