Bottle of water: [$0.50] At QFC


What do you love most about where you live? Since living here, I have learned to appreciate more of the outdoors and the lowkey environment here allows me to relax better.

What would you spend your last $5 on? Not gonna lie, a bag of Andy Capp’s hot fries for $.99, a banh mi sandwich for $2.98, and a can of green tea with ginseng and honey for $.79.

Why did you choose these 3 items? These are three items that I consistently think about during my daily work grind: my commute to work located in Chinatown, what to eat for lunch, and what to drink. Every morning I make sure I have the funds to even do these things.


Thanks for submitting, Corinne! Keep reppin’ Andy Capp’s Hot Fries while on the Left Coast! <3 – h!
