I'd buy a squeegee and a bucket go make that $1 into a $5 and keep going
I'm growing about 50 lbs at least of sweet potatoes in my backyard. The cost $0. I just replanted some clippings.
I also have three tomatoes plants. Cost? $0. I grew them by breaking some braches off other tomatoes as an experiment to see if they would grow. They are thriving. I almost cant' believe it.
I also have onion seeds that I saved from an an onion I grew that I let go to seed. Coat $0. Also all of my spaghetti Squash and butternut squash at $0. And my romaine lettuce.
starving actors? oxymoron?
Lump sum, buy a large quantity of rice. Individual days, I can only think of noodles. the 2 minute variety, theyre about $.50 cents a packet here for the super cheap type.
Hmmm rice.. When I like something, I like 2000 of it!

Oh I'm not going to any parties. Or anywhere. I've lived on rice before, and with stock cubes and an onion or a carrot, it's easy to make something reasonable. Noodles are actually high in fat content. But yeah, I don't think we're going for healthy at $1 a day, unless you are alreayd in a position to make that work.
Nothing here is $1. Everything is over a dollar.. unless it is on special, and that's on chance if you find it.
If it were a case of $1 a day too, I know I could survive on the things I'd need to buy (I'd also ask someone at the shop before going in for a dollar, can't hurt, if I'm polite and not a tosser, and then I have double!) but the cooking it, and a place to stay would be the issue for me if it came down to that situation.
We do have parks with free gas bbq's. But you can't cook rice or noodles on a hot plate. Tried it. haha
I know if it ever came down to it again, I'd probably have to rely on organisations as I've done before. As little as possible, and not as soon as I could. But it's certainly a relief to know they exist here.
