What should I buy first? 

 If I had $2 to buy something for my first day of my experiment what would I buy? That’s the question I have been contemplating and what I talked with my wife Ruth about this morning.

I thought maybe I could buy a reduced price loaf of bread, that way I could make some toast and I could have some extra slices throughout those first few days.

A second option would be eggs. I could fry them, boil them, scramble them. But where am I going to buy a dozen eggs for less than $2. If I am willing to buy just a dollars worth of food day one, I could probably buy eggs on day 2.

Another option is rice. Maybe I could go to a bulk food place and buy a dollars worth of rice and then stretch that out for a couple of days. 

Or maybe I could buy pasta, I think I can buy pasta for under $2. But what would I put on the pasta, otherwise it is going to be very bland.

Oh I know, I could go to Costco and buy a box of granola bars and then spread those out over a few days. But there is nothing I can buy there for $2. It would be embarrassing to go and stand in line there and try to find something for under $2.If I am willing to not eat for 5 days to start, then I can probably buy something for $10. If you don’t have  a lot of money up front, you can’t save money in the long run! Argh!

The reality is if I buy something like Kraft dinner, then I need to have milk and butter. I can’t afford that. 

Oh one other important detail, if someone doesn’t give me $2, or no one will hire me…well I won’t be able to buy anything at all. What could I possibly do to make money?   I don’t feel like I can do anything much because I have an injury that prevents me from doing anything involving manual labor.

Lord help me! There are so many unknowns when you are in a position to not provide for yourself.

So if anyone can help, click the PayPal link on the side. I would really like to be able to have to make a choice on what I buy, no matter how insignificant it may seem. If you help me, I can help others. Every donation over $2 will be given to others who face this challenge daily.

One human family, food for all! Right?
