Keep it Simple Challenge

Beginning December 1st through December 7th, I challenge you to join me and Caveman as we attempt to live on just $1/day for seven days. Originally the plan was to spend no money at all, but because Caveman has tolls to cross on the way to work, an ammendment was made.

Remember the post last week about how over one billion people live on less than $1/day? Well, we'll assume we're the rich of that group and actually have the $1 each day. We will use $7 cash for the entire week and post updates as we go.

We'll post the guidelines before the challenge begins so if you plan to participate (or if you don't but still have input!) feel free to comment with your suggestions!

Not up for this but still want to be creative? Try fasting on Thanksgiving day; use your time to think about and pray for people around the world without access to clean water and food.
