One Couple's Budget

One family’s spending. An anonymous married couple has decided “to be completely open about [their] finances so that people can see what an actual family’s budget looks like.” In addition to blogging about their financial habits, they’ve also published a spreadsheet of “(almost) every dollar” they spent between December 2015 and November 2017. For each transaction, the dataset provides the date, dollar amount, category (e.g., “Groceries”), and meta-category (e.g., “Food”).
