Remember my promised credit union statement parsing code. Well, it’s coming soon. But in the meantime I’ve learned that since July 4, 2007 (my first visit) I’ve spent $1982.67 at Casa Mia on 179 separate visits for coffee and related items.

This is less than I spent on electricity ($3142.92) and property taxes ($4475.38) over this period, but more than I spent on telephone service ($1402.40), shampoo and sundries at Shoppers Drug Mart ($904.34), and water and sewer for our house ($783.53).

Here’s my Charlottetown restaurant spending breakdown for January 1, 2007 through May 31, 2009:

Casa Mia $1982.67
Tai Chi Gardens $1182.17
Interlude $600.93
Urban Eatery $578.63
Leonhard’s $421.35
Seatreat $341.57
Town & Country $281.28
Formosa Tea House $168.50
Just us Girls $163.21
Cedars $162.57
Timothy’s $158.70
Café So Ban $145.10
Downtown Deli $109.20
Beanz $83.85

Conclusion: I eat out a lot (I spend an average of $7 per day at Charlottetown restaurants). Is there a possible reboot-style action item here? At the very least, I’m well on my way to my “spend $2,000, get a free cup of coffee” plateau at Casa Mia!
