Alexander James Fullerton Simulation Paper For my simulation paper I decided to use option #1, simulating poverty. In order to complete this simulation I had to limit myself to spending $12 for four days in a row. The $12 did not include spending on shelter and utilities, but it did include any food you bought. Also you could not eat previously purchased food or use a meal card for food, which made it quite difficult at times. During a typical week I only spend money on food, so while during this simulation I mainly focused on limiting my spending on my meals. In order to help me in the completion of this simulation I planned out what I was going to eat each day that would cost me less then $12 total for the four day period. Outside of this simulation I normally consistently eat eggs, chicken, salmon, salads, and hummus throughout the week. Also I normally only have two meals a day, which was definitely a big factor in helping me save money. Luckily most of those items you can buy for fairly cheap, outside of salmon and hummus, which most of the time are expensive. For the first day, Monday, October 3 rd , I spent a total of $6 on 3 lbs. of frozen chicken breasts from Wal-Mart that I planned to use throughout the four days. The next day, Tuesday, I spent $2 on 18 ounces of iceberg lettuce, and $2 on off brand ranch dressing, which I got all from Wal-Mart for a total of $4 that day. This put me at a total of $10 spent and $2 remaining. Luckily the ranch dressing was on sale that day because otherwise I don’t think I would have been able to find salad dressing for $2 or less.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
