i guess my point is that a great many people don't have the choice...
they simply don't have much money...
and i think it's good to remind ourselves of that on a regular basis...

far too many people live beyond their means imo...
and then a great many more simply don't appreciate what they have...

i guess i like the idea of walking in another person's shoes to keep you grounded....

i feel like it would give some people a greater appreciation for what they have and more empathy for those who have not..

i like this idea...i have certainly gone a week and possibly more without spending a cent..im a college student so this is kind of a way of life..it can go further if you buy only non-perishable groceries so that you dont have to replenish by the next week, make your own coffee, and flirt with people at bars so they buy you drinks (never go home with them, of course) ...then again, if i had a family to support it would be far more difficult yet more rewarding to go a week without spending.
