$30 challenge

Hey All,

I’m currently sitting in a moderately comfy chair, attached to an IV.


This is routine. I have a monthly infusion for my MS, and it seems to be doing the trick. Touch wood.

Anyway…The Boy has suggested that I dive into things head first (while I’m busy putting together set up guides for absolute beginners) and show my peeps that it’s possible to eat well on next to nothing.

His budget at University was around $30 AUD a week.

SOOOOOOOO, he has challenged me to feed us on that amount (each) and share the meals and planning processes with you all.

What can I say? I’m a sucker.

These pages will document our $30 challenge. You’ll be able to follow our adventure in this, from purchases to recipes. I just hope you can handle my photography…

So here goes, looking forward to getting the magical “Achievement Unlocked” seal of approval.



    • Hi Jess,

      We’ve moved beyond the $30 challenge and have been working on $25 each per week for the past few months while we save for a house deposit.

      If you click on the link “Live on $25 a week” you’ll see what I’ve been cooking and what I’ve been buying and where set out in the posts.

      Basically, you can scroll down the page and see what we’ve been doing and eating.

      If you have any questions or requests, then let me know!
