Live below the line - Unicef challenge!

I stumbled across the unicef 'live below the line' challenge at the weekend and we have-to, have-to give it a try!
Not only would it work well towards our money diet but it would really teach us the value of wasted food too, and believe me we seem to waste far too much food!

The idea is that from the 29th April to the 3rd of May you have just £5 to spend on five days food, that's just £1 a day. That £1 has to include EVERYTHING (bar tap water), which means living below the poverty line for a week. Intrigued? You can find out more about it HERE!
So we are going to give it a go - TWICE.
We're going to try it out in march, to save ourselves some pennies on our money diet, and then do it again on the official week to help raise money for unicef.

Now to actually get this to work D and I will be taking the challenge, the babies will not (they are too small at just 20 weeks corrected) but I am hoping they might join us on future years, perhaps we'll do it for one week every lent, and I'm sure then the joy of easter eggs would be even greater after!

What do you think, will you be taking part in the 'live below the line' challenge?
