by the time that you are reading this i will be on my third day of a challenge i'm currently in the middle of for cleveland's NBC affiliate WKYC.
i've been charged by WKYC to not spend a single dollar from this past monday to this upcoming sunday.
that's one full week of not just being on a set budget, but literally having zero budget.
and if you know me at all in person or simply from this blog, or if you follow me on twitter or foursquare, then you know that i'm a social butterfly, gallivanting foodie, and shopaholic that likes to spend money.
the instructions were as follows: fill up my gas tank and go to the grocery store sunday night, then, well, just don't spend any money. all while documenting on my flip video when i realize things that i would normally be doing but can't because they cost money.
this should be an interesting experience to say the least, as i'm very curious to see if i can make it through the week/weekend.
i mean what if i run out of gas?!?! what if i desperately need starbucks?!? what if the marc jacob bag i've been eying goes on super sale?!?
the agony! the torture!
the piece is going to run on WKYC in two parts, one this upcoming monday based on the interview i did yesterday morning at my apartment - check out a picture from the shoot.
and the second one this upcoming tuesday which will give a full week recap of how i did.
i sure hope i'm ready for my closeup...
so set your DVR's to WKYC (that's channel 3, kids), to see how i do, but remember the camera adds 40 pounds.
