@BillfoldMonkey I am fairly certain I will have spent the cost of a small wedding on clothes/travel/gifts/support/parties for other people's weddings this year. Seven weddings. SEVEN. And not a single one of them here!
@LookUponMyWorks This sounds wonderful. Ugh, beige and black. I am done with neutral tones for a while too. #reddressmonday
I didn't estimate because I've been failing hard at Billfolding lately, but it was a present-cheap, future-expensive weekend. I spent $50 total ($4 for lunch and $46 for date night dinner on Friday). Then I got really sick. ...but future-expensive because my friend had a bachelorette party this weekend, and I volunteered/was volunteered to help pay for some of the things, I expect a Paypal-related friends email soon. No idea how much (eep).
My 1 thing is a great 1 thing: make pie!
I have a serious work clothes scope creep problem, but I am a lazy bastard when it comes to shoes. I have a uniform, Mike Dang style, and I wear the same 3 pairs always depending on the situation.
@ThatJenn This sounds like the nerdiest, most delightful weekend. Geocaching, football, RPGs, turtles. Jenn wins!
@BillfoldMonkey Good luck! That will be a pile of compound awesome feelings: clean place! less stuff! same bank balance! :) You can do it.
@Heather F G I moved in July and now a) live by a big park (with a one-person tennis wall for practicing your swing!) and also miles of trails that run along the river and are beautiful and b) have a roof deck to read on. Life is divine. But pool rules in the south are bullshit.
Eek! I have been off the Billfold for a LONG TIME. Sorry, guys. (...and my financial state has devolved, though that was not unexpected because a bunch of expensive stuff happened.) Today: I was in a rush to get to a doctor's appointment at 8am, so I failed to pack a lunch. I am in love with Cosi, so I may go there for lunch, which usually costs me about $11. After work, I've got a friend's going away party, where I'm guessing I'll spend $15. Then college football watching/dinner out, which will probably set me back another $30. Yikes. Tomorrow: I'll be at http://www.loc.gov/bookfest/ all day (and will get fed there), so hopefully no spending (but I'm going to throw in $30 just in case, because I love books so much). I should pick up my dry cleaning on my way home, and I'm trying out a new place that doesn't post prices, so I'll just guess $50. Sunday: birthday brunch for my bff ($25) followed by chores, running, and then another friend birthday party at a beer garden ($25). Monday: FREEDOM! I haven't had a day all to myself in a very long time, so I will probably just work on a bunch of chores and read books and play outside, but I may do a mini grocery run for about $25. This weekend is busy and spendy, but luckily there are lots of gaps in which I can nap/read/watch Battlestar/run/do apartment things, which will be lovely. I also plan to enjoy this last weekend of my apartment's pool being open. :) (...which is silly in DC, btw, where it's usually in the 80s well into October/November.) Total: $211. Seems about right.
