$2 a day a week is $14 a week. In our society, $14 would buy you lunch and maybe a drink. If we earned $2 a day, we would have to rethink our way of living. What do we need to buy to survive? Living on $2 a day would be very hard for most people, but others know how to because they have to. They have no car, no house, and no job. Their highest priority would probably be to stay warm and eat as often as they possibly can. For people who do own a car, have a house and obtain a job, it would be almost impossible to live on $2 a day for a week. THey wouldn't be able to fill their gas up, have to buy food in small portions and not buy unnecessary items.
