Here’s an interesting tool for your Taco Tuesday (…patent pending. Don’t even think about it Ansel): The Taco Bell disrupt, an ingenious way of stretching your fast food dollars. A web developer gathered a bunch of menu data from the Taco Bell site, and plugged all of this info into a nifty program. The result is a rad tool that figures out the maximum amount of calories you can get from your budget. The kicker? Every suggestion sounds totally delish.
Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with how many dollars you can spend in the subject line. IMPORTANT: Don’t use dollar signs or punctuation (this means that the number should be just dollars, no cents. Make sense?).
How much money do I have in my pocket now? I’ve got $3.00 (sad face), so I emailed “3” to email@example.com. Here’s the helpful reply:770 calories, what a bargain! Oh wait, I forgot that I keep another dollar in my left shoe for rainy days…I just upgraded with some “cheesy” nachos! Frugal Gourmet, eat your heart out.
