Brittani Cunningham lives in New York City and makes $37,000 a year. She manages to save nearly half her income by going to free events around the city, eating at work whenever possible, working out at nearby parks and thrifting for items like books and clothing. Outside of rent and bills, her biggest expense is on takeout. In a typical week, she spends around $200. During the week of June 21-27, 2021, Brittani tracked her spending to see where her money went.
