£1 a day

We're taking the challenge of living below the extreme poverty line, spending just £1 a day, to raise money for charity, but also to experience it and enhance our compassion. People all over the world have less than £1 a day to live on, which has to provide food, shelter and utilities. We have so much provided for us, but we are going to eat for just £1 a day. The challenge doesn't begin until May 2012, but you can read about last years experience here.

Day one complete food diary - KJ

Monday, 2 May 2011

Here is my total food diary for today!

Toast x 2 with butter 12p
Large glass Kefir 1p

Cup of soup (thai chicken yummy) 8p
one piece of toast 3.5p

Jacket potato 11p
Salt & Pepper 1p
Butter 5p
Large glass Kefir 1p

60ml homemade yoghurt 3p

Total cost of todays food = 45.5p

Well under budget. Unfortunately, there's nothing else I want, given that we can only eat more off the list we already have and I don't fancy plain rice!

The new budgeting rules have scuppered my plans for rationing Ribena as the bottle cost nearly £4 so there is no way I can work it into our budget. I'm getting withdrawal just thinking about it...
