how hard can it be?

This past Wednesday marks the start of Lent. So the challenge? Living on $6 a day for 40 days (that $6 is not just for food, but living expenses). How hard can it be? Check out some of the “how” and “why” for the next few weeks.

So this is going to impact my eating habits, how and when I can get to a grocery store, and what will be for dinner.sushi in TO supermarket

Things I already miss:

  • Starbucks coffee
  • Sushi
  • Beer/alcohol

So I will keep you posted on stuff that fits in to this tiny budget. For tomorrow, breakfast = oatmeal, lunch=left over cauliflower soup, supper=baked beans with homemade bread and tossed salad, snacks=dried fruits and nuts. Not a bad start. I susspect that when the food runs out of my fridge, I will by singing a different tune.
