  7. Maybe you can buy a good dinner for two dollars. but I don’t think one dollar will fir the budget. but I am amazed on what you can buy for a dollar.

  8. I really can’t believe that this is happening. I can’t imagine how they survive.

  9. Oh my gosh! I can’t live 1 dollar. I don’t know how to manage it. Even here in our place the commodities is cheaper still I don’t have any idea how to budget that certain amount. Good for you that you can able to budget that for 1 day.
