I just got back from Mardi Gras in NOLA, so I'm excited to do as little as possible this weekend. Here's my estimate: Friday - Haircut ($100, including tip), go home and watch season 7 of Friends and make dinner using things in my cupboard. Saturday - Farmer's Market + Trader Joe's run ($50), probably pick up a Subway sandwich because it's becoming a ritual ($7), then work on my mgmt school project while drinking tea at home ($0). Sunday - Stay in. Probably work on my project and also work on a logo. Watch some movies. Do laundry and try to clean since I have friends coming into town next weekend (yay!). Total estimate: $157
@TheDoctorsCompanion sa-weeet! congrats to you as well! :)
@EmilyAnomaly thank you! :)
REALLY EXCITED about this month's check-in. Here's why: Credit Card w/ an interest rate of 7.25% and minimum payment of $73: October: $2778.51 November: $2362.60 December: $1788.74 January: $1376.43 February: $0! I've been working on paying this down for a long time and it feels great to know that I've knocked it out (thanks to diligent budgeting and my tax refund!). I'm not quite debt free yet. I have another card that I need to pay down, but we'll talk about that next month. :P
Yeah, having grown up in a lower-middle class family with 4 kids, I don't think my parents would have been able to afford today's prices either. Admission + gas + two meals each + snacks? That's at least $800, easy. Ouch. Having said that, now I really want to go to Disneyland and eat Dole Whip...
Lovvvve Planet Money. This is a brilliant idea.
Ack. I spent too much this weekend. But it was fun! And a lot of the money I spent was on replenishing groceries/toiletry necessities, so it's all good. Friday - Spent the evening at the Disney Museum ($16 Uber, $13 food truck dinner, $7 drinks) Saturday - Brunch with a friend ($20), fancy candle ($26), smoothie ($5), Daiso ($8), met a friend at Quickly's ($10) Sunday - coffee shop ($13), Walgreens ($40), tea date ($6) Monday - worked in the morning, then made a Trader Joe's run ($81-- I should be good on groceries for 2 weeks) Total - $245
aw man, feel better! this sounds awful.
@Marissa ALSO, great work, sister!
