My weekend went way over my original estimate. We skipped the party on Friday night because I had a headache and my train was late, so I saved $15 on wine, but I forgot that I had scheduled a haircut, so that was $75. (What do you people spend on your hair and how often?) Saturday we went out for lunch while we were running errands, $40. Sunday we went for a driving lesson in the country and wound up eating small town Chinese food, also $40. So $155, about about twice what I had planned.
Should be about $70 this weekend. Going to a party at a friend's house tonight, so $15 for a bottle of wine. Tomorrow night will probably go out for pitchers and greasy bar food $40. Taking the train out of town (again, on points) to visit my sweetie, but will probably recoil at the cold when I get in on Sunday night and take a cab home from the train station, $15.
Friday - train ride to see my medium-distance boyfriend. Went first class on points, so I got free dinner and booze. Stayed in, watched some netflix. $0. Saturday - took a drive through the country, the restaurant/antique store we wanted to go (Ok - I wanted to go to) was closed, but stumbled upon a nearby cheese factory ($14) instead. Picked up some groceries to make dinner for friends ($30) for a total of $44. Sunday - slept in, brunch at home, ran some errands (his), went for a walk to enjoy the warm weather, took the train home, caught a cab from the station instead of walking, because it was raining. $11. Total: $55, about $5 more than I had budgeted due to inclement weather. All in all, not bad.
Visiting my out of town partner this weekend, so we'll mostly stay in and make googly eyes at one another. Budgeting $50 for dinner on Saturday - either we'll get take out and watch something on Netflix, or we'll go to my favourite Indian place. Train tickets were paid for with the points I've accumulated by spending 2 years in a long distance relationship.
