The story behind the challenge is a simple one. My office is located literally 2 minutes away from the Avenues, so we go there to have lunch, almost every weekday. The money we spent on food is simply unacceptable, we’re having lunch/dinner outdoor 5 – 8 times a week.
So we’ve decided to do a 1 KD challenge, wherein everyone can spend a maximum of 1 KD for his lunch every day. I have no idea how long I can keep this up but I’m guessing at least a good 5 days. The challenge started yesterday and I spent 1KD + 50 fils on fatayer (the 50 fils was due to a miscommunication on their part). It was very awkward when I made a scene over 50 fils trying to take it down to 1 KD.
If I pull this off for a month or two I will be saving a lot of money, also, digesting a lot of unhealthy food, which isn’t good. So I need to figure out a way to balance being healthy while also being very economic. I guess I’m going to start depending on the office’s free coffee and water A LOT.
I normally post my lunch and other activities on snapchat, so you can follow me there if you want to see how well (or bad) the 1 KD challenge is going (Snapchat: x.u)
