8. Fast food is NEVER cheaper

Absolutely no way to make that math work, and I've tried.

For example: $4/lb for hamburger make 4 patties, add $2 worth of buns, cheese, and condiments. $4 for a bag of frozen fries. $2 for a 2-liter of Coke.

$12 vs $25-$30 at McDonald's.

An XL take and bake pizza at Aldi is $8, vs a much smaller medium for $6 at Domino's.

And if you use GrubHub or another delivery service? Oofff.
