Heather on Episode 5: Fend For Yourself

During this episode the parents decide to give a reality check about life expenses as well as make us more grateful for what we are provided with. I think I kind of sparked this whole idea by complaining about family dinners, insisting that I could eat and cook for myself. This was a horrible idea. It led to sleeping outside and paying for every little thing including sitting on a chair, using a paper towel, etc. I learned a valuable lesson this episode. The lesson is that every little thing costs something. Using 4 paper towels when you really need 1 to dry your hands is wasteful. The little things really do add up and I need to be more conscience about being wasteful. In the end I not only learned that but also that fending for yourself is much more tough then teaming up and doing it together. Sharing food and money was much easier.
