Incredible but true - the story of how one woman lived for a whole year on just a pound a day. Kath Kelly was broke. That was ok, as all her friends were, too. But she had an important event to budget for, just a year away. One drunken night, she made a rash decision: to live on just a pound a day for the next twelve months. In 12 month-by-month chapters, she tells how a mission to cut her spending to the bone showed her another side of herself and of human nature. Through a year like no year she had spent before, she discovered how greed and waste was messing up people - to say nothing of the planet - and came to see how much fun can be had on a few pennies a day. A comprehensive directory of organisations and websites provides invaluable leads for all of us - whether we want to follow Kath all the way or just pick up tips on how to save money and live more sensibly.
