I'm spending my summer working in NYC on a pretty slim wage and so I'm trying to save as much money as possible before I leave. Basically I'm stuck on the amount I should be estimating for my food allowance.. I've read so many posts on here all saying different things, one even said you need to allow $100 a day for food!! I've been to the city before and never spent that in a day but just want some clarification please.
My accommodation only has a microwave and fridge so I should be able to make my own pack lunch. So I'm spending 3 months in the city would $2770 be realistic for food for the duration? That is based on,
Is this realistic or do I need to start working 12 hour shifts :)
