really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction

Fascinating look at the hardships of trying to live on minimum wage, both financially and physically. After reading this, I'm not sure how anyone manages it, especially since she gave herself a few "cheats." It is very easy to read. This was the first "experiment memoir" I read - and made me fall in love with the (sub)genre.
