What I’ve learned living on less

What I’ve learned living on less

It’s day 20 of my living on less challenge and so far I’ve averaged $1.79 per day for my food, taken 3 train trips and been a passenger in a car four times. I’ve raised an AUD equivalent of ~$1,140 [Update: $5,195.15 by the end of the campaign] to support some of the most effective charities helping to improve the lives of people in poverty.

It’s not been a walk in the park by any means but I’ve certainly learned a lot.

When I started writing this post I thought it’d be a few quick lessons – turns out I was very wrong. I’ve decided to break it up into what I’ve learned about people, food, poverty, fundraising and habits.

  1. Hi Luke,
    Absolutely love what you’re doing. It’s amazing!
    I launched my own journey mid this year, The Give Initiative. It’s where I’ve pledged to donate half my pay for half the year, directly to charity while learning to live off the other half. I’m over half way now, and someone just just tagged me in your SBS article. Not only was it inspirational, but I think it’s the most similar thing I’ve seen so far.
    I’d love to chat and get to know more of your story. I’ll enter my website, but most of my daily content is shared through my Facebook. Looking forward to hearing from you.
    -Stay Awesome
