Hello all! I had a quiet and wonderfully restorative weekend. Here's the breakdown: Friday: Used a free trial visit at a nearby gym, $0, then went to Fairway to get a refund for some yogurts that had busted open in my grocery bags on the way home the week before (+$4). Saturday: Bagel and coffee ($7), laundry (loaded $20 onto my card), and picked up some grapes on the walk back ($5). Watched a lot of Netflix =) Sunday: Joined said gym ($21) and ordered sushi as a weekend treat ($11). Cooked up a storm for the week ahead, planned Thanksgiving packing, and cleaned. All told, an even $60 for the weekend.
I did my one thing, y'all! I signed up for the TSA pre-check months ago, but never dragged my sad self to midtown west to show my passport and get fingerprinted. Accomplished that last night. It was shockingly quick, pleasant and efficient!
I had a very expensive Thursday, so it will be a low-budget weekend. Tonight: Dropping my suit jacket off at the dry cleaner ($6). Saturday: Customary bagel and coffee ($7) followed by a trip to a holiday market to browse for gifts. Not intending to buy anything, just looking for ideas! Dinner with friends in the evening ($20). Sunday: Home all day is the plan--Netflix, cleaning, cooking, resting before a family-filled Thanksgiving week. May do a small grocery shop ($15). Total Estimate: $48
@annev17 @garli Oh yes, or the one whose parents cut her off and asked me if I could cut her rent in half (absorbing the rest myself) because "it's super hard to support myself?" (WHICH I HAD BEEN DOING FOR 3+ YEARS AT THAT POINT I MEAN REALLY)
I appreciate your tag.
@blackframe I can't speak for their clothing (as a plus-size woman I just assume they don't have my size or style), but their bags are immaculately constructed. I get compliments every day on my tote, and whenever I travel on my weekend bag.
Nazanin is my favorite part of this podcast. No offense to Alex, but like, she is awesome.
@may june july Ah, good point. Still, yes, yay for modest sized houses! My childhood home was like, 1700 square feet for 7 of us? So to me a 500sqf bungalow would be roomy!
@aardvark Tiny house! Ahh!
