    I SIMPLY LOVE $40 A DAY FOR SHE GIVES GREAT TIPS WHETHER FOR A LARGE FAMILY, GROUP OR JUST FOR YOURSELF. I USED HER IDEAS ALL THE TIME AND THEY REALLY WORK.

    Do some research. She can't cook and she is an idiot. I'm being kind. There is certainly nothing wrong with watching your budget as long as you are considerate (and educated) to the big picture.
  • One person eats on $40 dollars a day. Throw in a family and you are up to over $100 a day. Some show.

    I'm glad this show is gone. Rachael Ray is a fantastic woman but the preimse of the show was misleading. She could lead us to $5 dollar drinks and $8 dollar plates and round out her day just under her budget of $40 but she didn't tip well the waitresses and if you are travelling with more than one or two other people these prices soar. It's unlikely that a the premise of this show meant anything other to the producers. The locals were kewl, the people she met a long the way were neat but I just couldn't understand this show as hard as I tried.moreless
  • I have seen some episodes and for some reason, I like it!

    $40 a Day is a show where Rachel Ray goes to various places and just eats delicious food and participates in activities exclusive to that area. She has a budget of $40 a day for about three meals.



    I like this show because the food looks so good and it's great to learn about different places at the same time! Each resturant is unique and sometimes I want to visit the place! She makes the food seem waaaaaaay too good though. She makes noises like she's eating the best thing that she's ever tasted. Despite the little nitpicks, this is a great show and I give it an 8.5.moreless
  • The show is awesome and does work out for me because I have a small budget. I\'m just not sure if the concept will ever work to the shows purpose.

    I mean, if you only have 40 bucks to spend on food and you\'re in a state or city you\'ve never been in... I really doubt you should eat out at a restaurant. Maybe you should go for fast food because restaurants can easily blow your budget fast. Also who will remember the restaurants on the show and what she ordered unless you\'re a hardcore fan and you write everything down. Maybe the Food Network should come out with a book or mini guide for each state.moreless

    • THE ONLY PROBLEM iS..
      the only problem with the show "$40 a Day" is that it doesn't think about a whole family! most families have 2 parents and 2 child...
