A Week In Boston, MA, On A $62,000 Salary

4 p.m. — My boss left over an hour ago, so I pack up and leave early, too. I take the bus home and listen to the new episode of This American Life. As soon as I’m home, I change into leggings and a tank, grab my grocery bags, and leave the house without sitting down. I take the T to Trader Joe’s and grab a bigger grocery haul: chia seeds, granola, pretzels, sprouted wheat bread, a baguette, honey, sunbutter, red pepper flakes, salt, black beans, quinoa, chickpeas, three avocados, two containers of hummus, kale, spinach, bananas, and frozen mango. $65.40
