These videos should be titled more clearly. Your budget only covers food, this is “Eating for $10 a day.” Your phone, your rent, your utilities, all of that are “living” expenses. You just paid for food.

Tara Collins says:

I live in nyc, and the dumpling house u went to is actually a few blocks from my school and I go there all the time for cheap bubble tea.

capoman1 says:

Honestly, I appreciate this so much more than the gimmicky $1 a day videos done; where their entire day is like scrounging around begging for meals or samples and doing unpractical things. Your video was not gimmicky, this was completely practical. And you probably showed some New Yorkers where to pick up cheap lunch and dinner, at dumpling shops and that pizza shop. Very good video.
