100g Coffee 50p
Rich Tea Biscuits - 25p
Start your day with a couple of biscuits and a cup of coffee.
Lemon Curd 2 x 22p = 44p
Brown Bread - 50p
(or you could have white bread for the same price)
Toast with Lemon Curd for lunch.
You'll be able to have 4 slices a day and lots of lemon curd with the two full jars spread out over the week :-)
Lager £1 for 4 cans x 2 - £2
Forget tea go straight to the alcohol ....
2 litres of Lemonade 17p
... making it go further with a good glug of lemonade.
(also available as milk or dark chocolate)
When you get the alcoholic nibbles a square or two of chocolate should help.
And if you feel really guilty by the end of the week there's enough room in the budget for one whole
Banana (at just 10p).
Total spend for this Live Below the Line weeks shopping is £4.96.

This one is a bit tongue in cheek, but who knew that you could get Lager for 25p a can. So in the interests of research I actually bought some last weekend and we had a couple of lager shandys after working outside all day. It is very weak but tastes really nice. Ideal for when a long cool and slightly alcoholic drink is called for (it is just 2%) on a hot sunny day.
So looking at this shopping list it just goes to show that you can do the Live Below the Line Challenge YOUR way, whatever way that might be. The first year I did it I heard of a student that simply bought 5 huge Mars bars and a multipack of cans of Cola and that was it ... for the entire five days. I wouldn't recommend that but it was his choice.
What would your choice be?
If you are going to be taking part in Live Below the Line this year, which starts on 28th April and runs up to and including 2nd May let me know, and if you're blogging about it I'll link to your Blog to pass on the inspiration and encouragement for others.
Back tomorrow with a definitely non-foody post. We got a yard full of men!!
