Could you Thrive for Seven Days on 60 Dollars?
As much as I love waking up and getting my morning coffee from a local brew house, it’s not a realistic or prudent way to spend the remainder of my meager resources. Although its less than three dollars, that small expense accounts for nearly 40% of my daily budget. So cutting it out is a logical and necessary choice.
48 hours into my self-induced poverty expedition, I am starting to feel the pinch. It’s not as if I normally live a posh or lavish lifestyle, but getting by on less than nine US Dollars a day is not a simple task. Despite the hardship, I continue to find (and receive great suggestions for) numerous great events in and around Providence that are frugally fun.
