Hey Damian,

My tips:

 1. Gloucester Road (_fresh_ food shopping)
 2. (_stored_ food shopping, order in
    bulk quarterly)
 3. Give up alcohol and stick to wholefoods, everything else is a luxury
    ( > )
 4. Buy your handset outright +
 5. Buy a lunch box

Let's remember folks: Food, shelter, clothing - basic needs are all that 
matter all said and done. I challenge anyone to without them for 1 week. 
We're all lucky as fuck.

Best regards,

*PS @Rick* Some good points well made bud ;)
