3/7- $40 gas, $17.21 Sister's b-day gift
3/8- $9.52 Publix. I bought some Edamame (wanted to try it for a snack), a weird protein drink (it was gross), a pack of gum, and a Peppermint patty. So the drink, the patty and the gum weren't really necessary. The edamame COULD have waited til my next trip to the store, but it's better than snacking on junk food we have.
