Could you live for three weeks without spending a penny?
For plenty of people, life right now is nothing short of an arse. One of them is Bitterwallet reader Jamie Ryan (a person, not an arse). Due to be made redundant just days before he moves house, Jamie has found himself without a penny to his name. While he could borrow money to see him through to payday on March 13th, Jamie will instead attempt to get by without spending a drop of cash.
Armed with only a bus pass to take him to work, and with all of the bills paid for the next three weeks, Jamie is going to share his experiences of living without money on Twitter, posting regular updates about the hardships he faces and the solutions he finds.
Of course, you can't eat Twitter, so we're not sure how Jamie intends to feed himself for 21 days, but we're sure he'll think of something. "We can all find out together how easy or hard it is not to have any disposable income for nearly a month," says Jamie. "If I find it easy, hopefully it'll will encourage people not to rely on cash so much and save money in these harsh times."
Perhaps he'll go crazy and start eating people. We'll keep an eye on Jamie's progress over the next three weeks.
