Hello Sophisticated Spenders!
A wise man once said, “It’s a doggy dog world.” ~Snoop Dog
The minimum wage is currently at $7.50 an hour and welfare recipients receive $104 to feed1 person per month.
Which brings me to my fun challenge for the week!
Spent is a game that was created to show if you can live off minimum wage and survive when life happens.
Play it to see if you can make it to the end of the month!
Yaaaay! I made it through the month with $17 leftover and a horrible toothache. I had to make a lot of tough sacrifices but I made it.
I had to turn down a free concert because I didn’t want to pay a sitter. But my kid got to participate in some after school activities, get in the gifted program, go to a birthday party and I went and saw his/her school play (instead of making a quick $50). But I had to risk my kid starving because I wouldn’t sell out any extra lunch money because he/she was embarrassed of free lunch (where they do that at????). I had free lunch growing up and didn’t think anything at all about it!
Tell me in the comments if you made it through the end of the month????
