@callmeprufrock Right? Or like $20k, even.

On How a College Student from an Affluent Native American Tribe Does Money

I think it’s about $50,000 a month. On one hand, I believe that figure is accurate; but on the other, my first thought was, "That has to be a typo."

On How Much Do Teens Plan to Spend on Promposals? $324, On Average

Soph Hop: I think I asked the guy I was crushing on if he wanted to go to the dance by passing him a note in geometry class. At some later point he asked me if we were going as friends or as a couple; since we were not actually dating, I said, "As friends." It was not until years later that, to my endless shame, I found out that he was trying to ask me out. :( It worked out for the best, as we're still friends, and if we'd dated I doubt we'd have been on speaking terms by graduation. Junior prom: I went solo, though another friend and I agreed we'd buy each other flowers. It was the best time, even if I moped through all the slow dances because the guy I liked had a girlfriend. Senior prom: I was now dating the guy I'd been crushing on the year before. My mom made me get two sets of prom photos, one with him and one solo, because she could tell our breakup was imminent. (She was right. I broke up with him about a week after graduation, got back together again the next day, and dumped him again a couple of weeks later.) TL;DR: Promposals are ridiculous and unnecessary.

On Monday Check-in

My weekend was low-key as predicted: mostly I stayed in, played board games, and binge-watched Outlander. I successfully avoided any impulse purchases (except a frozen pizza) (but it was on sale), but groceries still ended up being significantly more than anticipated. Estimated total: $50 Actual total: $141

On Friday Estimate

After spending close to $1000 last weekend, we're gonna try and keep this one a lot more low-key.... Friday: No plans, staying in, hope to spend $0. Saturday: I'm going to a luncheon at church, already paid for, no other plans, hope to spend $0. Sunday: No plans except church, Game of Thrones, and Mad Men, hope to spend $0 but maybe $50 if we stop for groceries after church. Total: As little as possible, or at least under $50.

@aetataureate We almost always go to a gas station in a fancier part of the city than the neighborhood we live in, because for whatever reason the premium gas there is waaaaay cheaper than anywhere else. (Possibly because a lot more cars in that neighborhood need premium gas?)

@aetataureate Isn't it though?? Our car demands premium, and I was shocked when I saw it was only $26 for almost a full tank.

@BillfoldMonkey I definitely misread that as "a variety of disgusting dried cow parts for the dog" and was like O_o
