Good morning and TGIF! Let’s do some estimations.
As I mentioned in the Do 1 Thing post yesterday, I’m attending a birthday party for a friend and his baby, and that’ll be my main expense this weekend. My fridge is still pretty stocked, so I won’t need to do a grocery run. My estimate is $100.
What are your estimates?
I’m in Rockville, Maryland at the geek+creativity convention Intervention this weekend (betcha didn’t know that the entire day yesterday I was working from airplanes) so my spending will be a little unusual.
Today and Saturday it’ll just be the cost of hotel food*, but Sunday I’ll have to pay for the incidental costs of flying back to Seattle, including checking two bags because I’ve got a merch booth at Intervention and that means I get to haul my merch across the country.
So I’m guessing $80 for three meals each on Fri/Sat/Sun, and then $100 for checking two bags at the airport and then paying a taxi to get those awkward, heavy bags back from the airport to my apartment.
And probably an extra $20 on a souvenir from one of the Intervention merch booth dealers.
$200 total for the weekend. (I’m also expecting to earn $400 selling merch.)
How about you?

Good morning and TGIF! Time for some estimates.
I won’t be doing a weekend estimate today because I’ll be off next week. I had originally planned to take the $500 I put in a vacation savings account, rent a house upstate and go off the grid, but have decided to stay in the city, see friends, go to baseball games, sit outside in the middle of the day reading books, try some new restaurants, and try not to think about work for a week. We’ll see! I’ve always been bad about taking vacations. I’ll tally up my spending a week from now. Meaghan, Ester, and Nicole will be in charge.
But what about you? Any big plans this weekend?
