Sydney Experiment No.1

I went home (Toronto, Canada) for Christmas and returned in Sydney in early January 2013. I had a week and a half before taking off to Melbourne to visit some friends and family. One book inspired me to take up a one-week challenge: to live on $100 (AUD) for one week. Sydney is an EXPENSIVE city to live in. If you’re working you’ll be fine (generally speaking). But I decided that for that week I’d revel in my new-found freedom and take every morning to ask myself: “What the hell do I want to do today?” And so came the inspiration for the challenge.

The $100 would need to cover rent, food, lunch/dinner dates, nights out, shopping, transportation or any other ‘surprise’ expenses.

All I can say was that these last 7 days were the most eye-opening, awesome and spontaneous days of my life. And for those interested in learning a few things about saving some money in Oz—as well as having a laugh or two over my ridiculously frugal attempts to protect my wallet—then these next  7 entries are for you.

Starting next week I’ll be posting 7 posts everyday… one for each of my challenge days. Stay tuned and if you have any feedback for me—or are simply interested to see what went down—comment below! 🙂
