Hmm... I went out for drinks with friends in the afternoon- maybe $15? Then I had a nice dinner with my boyfriend for New Years ($50) and then we went to a friend's house party which didn't cost us anything. On New Year's Day we went out for brunch - probably $25. So I would say I spent about $90 total. Now that the holidays are over though, I'm actually really looking forward to paring down my spending. With the holidays there were so many things we had to spend money on- I'm going to live like an ascetic for the next few weeks to save a little money after spending so much in December.
I still get the occasional check in the mail for freelance work, and hated going to bank to deposit. BUT mobile depositing changed my life!
Wow, the closing to this piece was wonderful. My relationship is about to become an LDR so as I was reading this I guessed that it was going to end in a breakup, saying that it wasn't worth the money and the relationship didn't last. I'm so, so glad to hear that it did work out! I almost teared up during that last line.
Friday = dinner with boyfriends' parents, who generously paid ($0) Saturday= ordered a couple Etsy prints online ($21.80), then spent $20 on going out in the evening Sunday= breakfast sandwich ($4) and grocery shopping ($62) Total = $107.80 not bad.
I've never actually sat down and listed out my total spending for a weekend. I'm scared. Let's see... $14 ticket to an a show on Friday night. Nothing else, because I ate dinner at home before the show and skipped out on the after-drinks. $24 on two movie tickets + $15 on dinner on Sat night, went out with a few friends $65 on grocery shopping on Sunday, plus $9 on the cab home with my groceries because I lost my bus pass $25 on dinner with friends at a new Thai place on Sunday night. Total = $152
