Ashley Bodkin and Vaughn, Day 1
My weekend was not spent participating in Halloween festivities but rather spent shopping around the city for the best deals. I was surprised how upsetting it was and the recurring thought I keep having is, thank god I don’t have to feed children on this budget. I opted for more food, less health … and still wondering if that was the best choice. After the seven days are over I may never eat ramen noodles again.
As I started the challenge this morning the first notable change was my coffee. I love coffee and had to include it in my purchases. The organic fair trade whole bean coffee we usually buy goes for around $15 a bag, obviously that was not possible on our budget. I found a bag of ground coffee at a dollar store in Vancouver that will hopefully last us the seven days.
