A Week In Brooklyn, NY On A $73,185 Salary

5:50 p.m. — I leave work a little early and go to return a strange-fitting bikini top at Aerie. Since I’m close by, I stop at Trader Joe’s, too. Somehow there is no line right now, so I take my time browsing and get a bunch of random stuff: mushrooms, carrots, sunflower seeds, soy chorizo, frozen chocolate strawberries, frozen peaches, corn salsa, morello cherries, and a caramel sea salt chocolate bar for my desk. Usually BF and I split the groceries, but he’s bought random stuff like eggs and toilet paper this week, so I just pay and call it even. $22.78
