What you can eat for $2 day

So here it is. The last day of eating whatever I want before I have to survive on $2 day for 5 days. I celebrated by eating a packet of Twisties, 3 sushi rolls and a bubble tea (I have eaten more than that, but these seemed the most extravagant).

The Dashing Hans is taking part along with me so we pooled our shopping resources and managed to get some good bargains.

My weekly list includes:

  • 1/2 L skim milk - 50c
  • 2 cans of tomatoes - $1.53
  • 375g oats - 29c
  • 1/2 loaf of multi-grain bread - 75c
  • 5 pack of noodles - $1.09
  • 1/2 bulb of garlic - 30c
  • 500g mixed frozen vegetables - 76c
  • 6 cage eggs :( - $1.49
  • 250g pearl barley - 71c
  • 500g pasta - 69c
  • 60g butter - 34c
  • 2 pears -66c
  • 1 zucchini - 25c
  • 1 onion - 45c
Total - $9.81

When you see all the food laid out on the counter and it looks more like what you would have out to cook for one nights meal... that's when it hits home how little you will be living on for the next five days.

Oh God.

Don't forget... You can sponsor me in my Live Below the Line Challenge by clicking here. The money raised goes towards educating children in Cambodia and New Guinea in order to break the poverty cycle
