$1.50 A Day? Impossible!

Attempting to live off of $1.50/day seemed impossible for me. Even thinking about trying to spend such little money made me very aware of all the small privileges I have that I easily overlook. For example all of the meals I eat on campus are valued at $7.35 each, however I easily swipe my Owl Card and am given a meal without even considering the cost. I have become accustomed to my lifestyle and the little everyday things that I use which, in total, far exceed $1.50/day such as my morning coffee, perfume, and even my shampoo. It is truly eye opening to see the value of how much I have and try and imagine living off of $1.50 a day.
