My $1.50 A Day Journey Starts Today
Live Below the Line
My Live Below the Line challenge started this morning with a peanut butter sandwich and I guess this is the first time I had that for breakfast. It was quite filling and I might have to start doing this when I don't have time to make breakfast. Yesterday, I went shopping with my $7.50 at Save-A-Lot and I was able to buy the following items:
3 oranges .51
Loaf of bread $1.29
Navy beans .99
1 carrot .15
1 onion .35
Can of diced tomatoes .59
Jar of peanut butter 1.89
Turkey hot-dogs .99
Not shown 1/2 cup of black beans .19 bought from my teammate
I'm making my stew as I type and it won't be ready in time for lunch so I'm going to have to make another peanut butter sandwich, bummer. That's what I get for being lazy last night. As you can see this isn't easy, especially if you are going to the movies in 2 hours. I will have to just focus on the movie as my twin sits there and chows down on her box of popcorn.
Okay, I'm back from the movies, Tom Cruise and sci-fi, what's not to love. As you can see from above, the stew came out great. The only problem, I was so hungry, I think I ate too fast. I can't wait for this fundraiser to end, Friday can't come fast enough.
I'm raising money for the Isis Foundation and if you like to donate, go to my page.
