Your Debit Card Got Declined?

Situation: It's 2:15 a.m., you just left the bar, and you need food. But your debit card just got declined in the Taco Cabana drive-thru window.
Feelings: Embarrassed, hungry, sad, hungry, annoyed. Did I say hungry?
Goal: To get some food in your belly and worry about the bank tomorrow.

It's happened to the best of us. But now you're hungry, you can't buy those dang quesadillas you love, and you're a little depressed. As with all other things that come along with being broke, you've got to get creative. Take a look in your pantry and hope that you can create something soothing. You more than likely have bread, an egg, some sandwich meat and a few other comforting items.
