9:00 AM: Coffee shop finance date! Grab a muffin, coffee, and cappuccino for my boyfriend before settling in. $11.20

12:00 PM: We’re both starving and head home to make brunch. It’s great that we’ve essentially cut out brunch. The past few times we’ve done this, we sometimes end up going back to work at the coffee shop afterwards, which costs another coffee. We make the executive decision to just work on our projects at home and not come back. $0

7:00 PM: Tonight’s the night. Laundry’s getting done. Does everyone else wait until their clothes are overflowing out of the basket? $5

Restaurants – $11.20
Bills and Utilities – $5 
(no idea how to categorize this one, though we already paid upfront for the quarters)

Total: $16.20
