For the first month of my experiment I will use a coupon for everything that I spend money on. That means if I don’t have a coupon, I can’t buy it. Everything from milk to shampoo to underwear will have to be bought with a coupon. But can I buy everything I need this way? Will I save money? Will I buy things I don’t need because I have a coupon for it? Where do I find coupons?
How important is art in our lives? Will participating in creative experiences every day influence how I feel? What forms of art will affect me the most? Will a life drawing class increase my hand-eye coordination? Can a salsa class change the way I move in daily life? The month of April I will spend exploring my artistic side – from pole dancing, to sewing, to being part of a flash mob dance for International Dance Day.
In honour of all the single city folk out there who are finding it hard to find love, I will examine as many different ways of meeting other singles as I can with thirty-one days of dates. From online, to speed dating, to being set-up, to dating a friend, I will spend each day exploring what it’s like to seriously date in the city. As many friends have pointed out, this will be exhausting but has the makings of a blockbuster romantic comedy.
After a rough month of dating I’m going to want to eat – a lot. In such a diverse city as Toronto, why not explore culinary culture from around the world and eat something from a different country each day? All the recipes that I cook I will post for you to try out, as well as the history of the food and the culture it comes from.
Is it really easier to buy things online and have them delivered to your door? Will I save time? Money? Or will it be more stressful and difficult to find the items I need? Everything I spend money in this month will be purchased online. I will share all the websites I use and break down the ins and outs of online shopping.
