Fruit Yogurts 2x4 at 33p = 66p
I call this one the 'No Cook' Live Below the Line.
The only thing you will have to do all week is to make coffee and warm up a can of soup each day.
How easy is that!!
Pork Pies - 4 for 85p
12 bags for crisps for 70p
Breakfast is coffee and a yogurt or two.
Lunch will be a pork pie and a bag of crisps (or two)
One day in the week it will have to be a Crisp Pitta bread for lunch, as you only get 4 pork pies in a pack, but I like a crisp butty occasionally, it would be a bit dry with no butter but you could use a smear of your teatime soup to moisten things a little :-)
Soup 25p a can x 5 = £1.25
- choose a combination of your favourite from Chicken, Tomato and Vegetable.
6 Pitta Breads for 22p
And your tea is a can of soup with a pitta bread, either as it is or toasted to dunk into your soup.
100g Coffee for 50p
2 packs of biscuits at 35p each = 70p
And you can pad out the day with coffee and biscuits to keep your tummy from rumbling too loudly.
1 banana 10p
There's even enough left in the kitty for a banana, in case you start missing your fruit too much, I know I would be by this stage.
With a whole 2p left over - you've cracked it again.

Are you feeling inspired yet?
Do my choices make you think you can do better?
I bet you can!! Do you fancy giving it a go this year and raising awareness of poverty all over the world, including in this country. Never have our food banks been more used. Never has there been such a huge increase in food prices with wages staying at or around the same level.
If nothing else taking part in the Live Below the Line Challenge can only open your eyes to the foods that we take for granted each and every day. The sheer abundance of foods available for those that have the money to buy anything they want to.
