    Must be nice to have that much money to be able to live and still not spend that much.

    I’m sure it wasn’t too bad considering there’s no kids involved.

    I want to know how they bought groceries and necessary toiletries for $35 a week. I'm pretty good at being able to feed a family of six including two toddlers that are having simultaneous growth spurts that comes with an increase in their appetite for less than $500 a month.

    But then people who work at restaurants wouldn't have a job, my hubby adores making his loyal customers their weekly pizza (sometimes more!) .

    I can't even afford the "extras" after my necessities are paid for. Must be nice to have all that extra money to "save"

    This woman’s story inspires me to go to more restaurants to support the hard working people that can benefit from the income.

    This is obnoxious and naive, a lot of people don’t buy anything “extra” because they can’t afford it, they have no choice. Acting like it is some great feat to do something for a year that millions of people do their whole lives with no choice is just pretentious. Enjoy your life, help others, give to charity, don’t write an insensitive book like this.

    Did she hit up food banks and deprive the ones that are in poverty of necessary needs for her experiment? BTW, for some people poverty is a choice. I'd rather use coupons so I can treat myself once a month to a take out coffee than deprive myself and my family.

    Looking at these comments, no wonder the average person is in so much debt with little retirement savings, attitude and discipline is everything.

    Same clothes for a year? Do people really buy new clothes every year? I've been wearing the same 4 pairs of jeans for the last 4 years. Just bought an $18 pair of shoes because my 6 yr old pair got holes in them and winter is coming. They sound frivolous to begin with.

    I spend thousands of dollars a year on food, coffee etc. sad to think about how much money is wasted! But I also would rather live a little. Living like this would drive me crazy plus having kids is a whole other story!

    It’s crazy the amount of money people spend on things they really don’t need, and then complain they are in debt.

    Props to her for doing this but I'm a firm believer in you can't spend it when you're dead so you might as well enjoy life.

    Were you homeless? If you are not, then you bought or "paid for" housing, car, gas, utilities, food (sandwich in your hand), all of that costs money.

    I can’t believe how many people responded like a dummy without reading the article. Headlines can be misleading because *hint* they aren’t real journalists writing the story.

    Allowed charity donations but couldn't go out and buy a new pair of jeans so people wouldn't have to look at holes in the @ss of her jeans. Makes perfect sense now.

    I find this hard to believe. Every time I go to the store to buy a few things I end up spending $50 on 5 things! How is it possible that they spend $35 a week! Unless they are vegan? How the hell?

    "Buy nothing for a whole year" Yeah, you tend to save a lot of money when you don't spend it, but have fun not having electricity or plumbing because you aren't paying bills.

    Who spends that much on extra stuff? Making that amount of money we can pay for bills and have extra left over.

    I don't even make $23,000. As a pensioner I live on less than $18,000. That pays rent, food, utilities, medication, clothes, transportation, etc. I go in the hole each month go hungry.

    I was just doing the math. I'm 300lbs about... maybe a little less. And I was like- I eat out every meal! My mom for years says I eat my money away... so when i need $20 for gas to hold me over... I'm in trouble!... I'm always scraping the barrel until payday... then i thought... DO I HAVE TO? I've even got it figured if i just eat 2xs a day and drink water... not only will I lose weight... I'll be financially stable!
