A Week In Brooklyn, NY, On A $65,000 Salary

5 p.m. — I have a therapy appointment at 5:30, but I’m about 20 minutes from home, I am STARVING, and I remember that I have no food in my house. I HATE cancelling and being a flake, but if I want to eat something healthy and get to the movie on time, there’s just no way I can make it. I text my therapist, and we reschedule for Wednesday. I head to Trader Joe’s to pick up some groceries. I grab bananas, almond butter, dates, kale, green beans, cauliflower florets, tomatoes, cucumbers, yogurts, grainless granola, and two packs of sliced salmon. $58.50
