I try to tell myself to think of it as an investment, but living in Germany where college is "free" (aka almost completely subsidized by taxpayers) makes it even harder to deal with every month. I just feel like I'm flushing money down the toilet that my friends are using to go on vacation and start their lives.
@Stina Oh I am proud. It takes stamina to watch that much TV. February was such a brutal month that I needed a weekend outside of my own head.
@Stina Woah homemade yogurt making. That's intense.
@halloliebchen Also I'm not gonna lie, I was really excited to write this today during Monday Check-In.
This was the cheapest weekend ever. Friday night: date night, BF treated, I decided not to go out for a drink and instead just drank the wine we had in the house (which was leftover from book club) - 0€ Saturday: Binge watched all of True Detective (DON'T GET ME STARTED), went to the gym, did a ton of laundry, went grocery shopping: 17€ Sunday: Binge watched all of the second season of House of Cards (I CAN'T EVEN), more laundry, ate leftovers and stuff that was in the pantry, RESISTED the urge to go out to dinner. Estimate: 40 € Total: 17 € Amount of rice and beans and lentils consumed: a lot Amount of television watched: holy smokes
@ThatJenn Enjoy your honeymoon!! Hiking and canoeing sounds lovely!
@andnowlights This weekend sounds awesome! I am also on the rice and beans kick right now, so I feel you. May I also suggest veggie chili, pasta w/ marinara sauce and chicken thighs - these are my dirt cheap go-tos.
My BF will be away all weekend so I can finally catch up on a MILLION HOURS OF TV. So I will be spending my weekend with Scandal, True Detective, and House of Cards Season 2. In between tv binges I will dutifully go to the gym. Estimate: 30 € for groceries
Here we go again! Credit card 1 (29.99% APR) January: 4911.08 February: 3,335.21 (Most of this is due to a balance transfer but still! My March goal is to have it under 3,000) Credit card 2 (22.9% APR) January: 1005.06 February: 951.86 Credit card 3 (18.9% APR) January: 502.78 February: 409.30 Student loan 1 (5.625% interest) January: 31,438.76 February: 31,136.84 Student loan 2 (6.25% interest) January: 10,801.13 February: 10,750.69 Student loan 3 (3.75%) January: 2165.15 February: 2111.91 Obviously right now I'm focusing on the credit cards (my goal is still to have it all GONE by the end of the year), but once that's out of the way, that 10,000 loan is next on the chopping block.
