Living off $2.50 (£1.76) a day

Living off $2.50 (£1.76) a day

At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day 1 but half the population of the world is estimated to live on less than $2.50 a day 2, so Luke Korns thought he would test this by buying breakfast, lunch and dinner for $2.50 a day for 5 days.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,500 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
