Hi Guys

I am doing a thing for bzzagent and I would be so grateful for any small donations.

I know money is hard at the moment but every £1 counts :beer:

Why I'm taking the challenge

In today's world, extreme poverty and inequality are unjustifiable and unfair. Live Below the Line demonstrates the problem in a concrete way, while raising money to address the problem. Support me as I live below the line by donating now – your generous support will go towards fighting extreme poverty

    i have lived below the poverty line for 2 years now. it is very achievable. surprisingly soo.

    supermarket ownbrand bread 50p
    own brand 'cooking bacon' 75p
    ownbrand frozen mixed veg
    economy sausages
    own brand orange squash/blackcurrent under 30p.
    £5 sack of spuds lasts me a month

    i use to be a pepsi gulping takeaway ordering spender. now im eating stews hotpots cassaroles.
    homemade sandwiches
    fry ups for breakfast 2 litres of blackcurrent each day and a homemade orange iced lolly for dessert and still have change of £7 a week.

    i actually eat more then i use to now, but with less calories and alot less tooth rott from fizzy drinks and coffee.

    goodluck with your challenge, its actually inspirational when you finally realise all the possible recipes out there, that have been ignored before. that you are shocked at how much you use to spend
