Shani Cain

5 Day Challenge 2020

SHOPPING TIME!

Starting today, I’m living on $10 next week for my entire food consumption - yep, including tea and coffee, spices and salt and pepper as part of Live Below the Line - Oaktree.
My team mates and I (there are four of us, one couldn’t make it) went shopping to buy our ingredients on the weekend (lucky we are stage 3 not 4 !!!).

We sourced our food from three different places and bought in bulk and then traded each other for what we needed. It was a testament to the privilege I have to be able to travel in a car to get food, having access to multiple food sources and it outlined how important community networks for trade and support are. It made me think about how I spend my money and how I use and at times waste food. It was a total eye opener of my inherent privilege.
We ended up with: 2 onions, 2 oranges, 2.5 very odd carrots, 10 peppermint tea bags each, flour for two of us and oats for the other 2, 100g of lentils, lots of little, slightly mangled potatoes, a quarter of grey pumpkin, a pack of 2 min noodles, 1 tin of coconut milk and another tin of crushed tomatoes and pasata sauce.
My meals will be 1. lentil curry with carrot, pumpkin and potato, 2. potato, carrot and pumpkin soup (I’m going to put one of the noodle flavourings in too 3. Flat bread for breakfasts and with the meals, 4. 2 min noodles and oranges for snacks and perhaps some sneaky chips! I even have 80c for salt and pepper with the receipts for proof.
Wish us luck and if you can spare a few dollars to help us serve up change and taste our privilege, we will love you forever!

I'm Living Below the Line...

Because I like food a lot, but I like advancing opportunities for young people in the Asia Pacific a whole bloody lot more. This year marks 10 years of living below the line and serving up change and I am back in action to ensure we can keep changing the world. I want to taste my privilege and do something good, in what has been a tough year.

I'll be taking on addition challenges, When I hot the following milestones, I'll be giving up more of my luxuries! 
? At the $1000 mark, I’ll be giving up the car for the week for absolutely everything and anything
?? $1500 will see me live in a tent for the week!
?At $2000, I’ll be limiting my water use to 5L per day - including drinking, cooking and bathing water.
?And if we can get to the $2500 mark I won’t be able to enter the house for anything and will need to heat my food over the outdoor fire. Rain, hail or shine.

Yep, we are going all out here.
