Can this family of wasters live with less? The Dominguezes get a special delivery to their New Jersey home—a challenge from Oprah.

"Tina and Joe, no more making multiple meals for the family," Oprah writes. "At your house, there is only one breakfast and one dinner being served. That means no trips to fast food restaurants, no catering to individual tastes. And you're all eating leftovers.

"Get ready to spend more time together because the TV is going off. You can watch one television for one hour a day. Pack away the iPods and the video games, and your computers only get turned on for homework.

"That thermostat is going down to 70 degrees. If you get cold, put on a sweater. Want to go shopping? Head to your closets. I hear there's lots of things in there you've never worn. The mall is off-limits to your entire family.

"Can't wait to see how you do. Good luck!"

Could your family do this for a week? Get the rules for your own "Live with Less" challenge.
