Shopping for Supplies and My First Day Living Below the Line

Lidl had an offer on tea bags, 27p for 80, this has made my week. So I bought 80 tea bags, two jacket potatoes, a bag of rice, a tin of chickpeas, 10 eggs, a tin of tuna, two packs of chicken instant noodles, a carton of passata, a pint of milk and two onions.

Living Below the Line Day One

The £1 a day that I am living on is only for food and drink, but the stark reality for the 1.4 billion people around the world that live below the extreme poverty line is that income has to buy so much more than food. That income also - somehow - has to cover transport, education, clothes and health costs.
