Living on a £ a day

Live below the line Oxfam scotland Glasgow food blog food drink Glasgow

Today we start our Live below the line challenge raising funds for Oxfam, which means we will be living on £1 a day for 5 days. We are a couple of days late starting as we had been away to the Chowzter Awards in London.

Also as there are two of us, it will be a max of £10 for the weeks challenge rather than £5. I have taken the prices from Tesco to enable ease of calculation for everyone.
