How I Lived On A Pound A Day

~“Don't think money does everything or you are going to end up doing everything for money.” - Voltaire


I'm reading a book (picture above) "How I lived on a pound a day written by Kath Kelly. It started as an impulsive idea, but then she wanted to test it for a whole year.
A friend of mine came over en gave me this book. 'It's something for you' He said. So I began this book with lots of curiosity and unbelief. How can you possible live on a pound a day?
I tried a couple of days to live on a pound a day, but it isn't easy. Kelly found washing-powder for 0,25 pound. The cheapest that I found here in Belgium was 2 euros. I could change my washing-powder in vinegar. It is available for less then 0,5 eurocent and you can use it for everything. Plus it's eco-friendly.

I will not test it for a whole year, but the book is inspiring and a little shocking to read.
I recommend this book to everyone. It gives you a new fresh view about how to spend your money.
