I totally see Mako as the most frugal out of the group. That includes Mr. Doughnut And Notebook, though Mako would’ve found one of her notebooks for Chibs and made her a private batch of personal doughnuts, thus proving once again that Mako is the actual best of all time.
MAKO AND MAMORU HAVING REGULAR COUPON SWAPPING AND CUTTING GET-TOGETHERS THOUGH
Right, anyway. I think Mako is a cautious spender. She’s always aware of how much she has, what her budget is, and is very careful to never spend outside her means. She knows the value of a yen and she knows how to make it stretch.
The others are aware of Mako’s money situation too, though mostly through observation and just a general awareness of her life. They try (not always successfully) to be mindful about not doing a bunch of expensive things too close together. Sharing food or drink is a regular thing though, with Usagi helpfully covering any possible embarrassment for Mako by also sharing in everything. Totally for Mako’s sake, of course. Usagi’s mooching is completely selfless. You need to buy me another sundae, Rei. DON’T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT I DO THIS FOR MAKO CHAN AND LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP AND BEING REALLY HUNGRY TODAY
