day is May 13, 2025. You have the day off of work but your day is completely
full with tasks to complete. Your alarm clock goes off, time to get out of bed.
You get dressed and all cleaned up. You decide you better eat some
breakfast before we start tackling today’s agenda. As your looking in the
fridge, you notice that it is pretty empty. Grocery shopping is a must for
today. You grab a banana and some yogurt and call it good. As your eating your
breakfast you notice the bills on the table. You also notice the flyer for your
upcoming party at work. You are responsible for bringing cookies for everyone.
You decide it's best to pay the bills first. You have a total of $600 in your checking
account. Here's the list of bills you have to pay:

close to lunch time. We better get grocery shopping soon. Open the map in the
resources tab and find the best way to get to the grocery store.
We finally get to the grocery store. You gather a few
of the necessities and now come across some cookies. You remember you have to
bring cookies for the upcoming party. Should you buy them or make
them? You need to have enough so that everyone gets one. There
will be 60 people at the party.

the recipe so it only makes 3.
