Color-Coded Purchase Rankings

Purchases are color-coded based on these four types of spending:

Convenient (overpriced, necessity). Ex. UberX Ride

Ideal (worth it, necessity). Ex. Rent in a cheap neighborhood

Luxury (overpriced, indulgence). Ex. Concert

Treat (worth it, indulgence). Ex. McDonald’s fast food
