How long could you survive on just $2/day?

$2/day... you can't save it. Use it or lose it!

    My sister survives on that. She eats a lot or rice and dal. And her ex buys 3 chickens a month ... she cooks up all 3 and keeps one (as the "fee" for cooking for him) .. so she uses a bit of chicken meat in her legumes too. She rounds it out with vegetables and a bit of fruit.

    Not long at all.It would take that much just to get coffee everyday.Its unrealistic to think a person could manage on that and be healthy.

    In terms of food, I would buy raw beans and rice, which I will cook to make for an economical meal

    That's the problem, now isn't it. If I could get $5/day I could get a whole chicken and eat for 3 days. But too many people are living in the trap you presented in real life. That said, I'd probably end up doing something horrible to survive and end up in prison living off $0.75/day. So suffice to say, HA!

    I could get food off the Dollar menu like burgers and tacos. Most fast food places give free water if you ask so that's taken care of. I could probably survive a year before I die of malnutrition.

    That used to cover two doubles at McDonald's ($1 each) before they raised their prices, anyway, that would still cover a lot of Ramen noodles (so you could survive indefinitely, I suppose) but you'd have to find a way to cook them on the street, lol.
