Friday: $9 for Chinese take-out Saturday: $13 for breakfast items, $50 for groceries to host a Hanukkah party that night. It went great! Sunday: This is where my estimate gets totally thrown off because I wanted to get some holiday shopping done. $25 for a poster and $50 on books for members of my family. Had to happen sooner or later, I suppose. Total: about $150, which is $60 more than I was planning to spend but I hadn't counted on holiday shopping!
I don't really have plans yet tonight but hopefully will be getting a couple drinks with friends, so I'll say $20. Tomorrow I'm having a big Hanukkah party so I'm gonna need food supplies! I'll say $50, which can hopefully include booze. Sunday will probably be spent cleaning up after the party and maybe making food so I have leftovers for the week. I'll say another $20. $90 for the weekend which is more expensive than usual for me, but hopefully the party will go well! Latkes and kugel and pickles, mmm.
I would probably go back. But also I now have that City High song stuck in my head. What would you do if your son was at home, crying all alone on the bedroom floor..
@elleohelle Making a big batch of a grain/veggie/protein mixture is super cheap, especially if you use beans as your protein. Rice with stir-fried veggies and tofu is an example, or I like this or this with quinoa.

Friday: $10 for a concert which I had budgeted for, plus another $10 there buying beers for myself and a friend, and I think I threw in like $3 for more beers later, though we were at a hilarious bar where the bartender was so drunk that he kept giving us back too much change/not taking our money and waving us away when we tried to correct him. Saturday I spent probably $24 at the grocery store, though I didn't even have my friends over for dinner like I was planning. I went climbing (free) and brewed beer (free) and instead of going to another concert I went to a house party later where my friend gave me a beer (free). Sunday I spent the whole day inside playing board games and working on grad apps and didn't spend anything. So total for the weekend: $23 which is insanely under budget. Thoughhhh that's not counting the $240 I spent submitting grad applications (AUGH) but that's coming out of a different account than my day-to-day one so I'm just not gonna count it here.
Tonight: $10 for a concert, plus I'll say $20 for dinner and drinks. Saturday: $7 for a concert, plus I'm having friends over for dinner so I'll say $20 for groceries since they're vegan and veggies are cheap! No plans for Sunday. Gonna say $70 total to allow for extra groceries and maybe a cafe visit.
No thanksgiving in Canada, and a super cheap weekend in general. Friday I drank for free all night--visited a friend at his brewery and got to take a ton of beer, which I drank the rest of the night/my friend bought me drinks at a bar. Woke up with a sore throat so on Saturday stayed in with board games and only spent $3 at a cafe. On Sunday I spent $8 on pizza, but that was it. An $11 weekend is exciting, even if it is due to illness! Even if I throw in the $20 I spent on a show on Thursday night I'm still coming in way ahead of budget.
@thenotestaken I don't have any plans for the weekend yet so it's hard to make an estimate. I'll go with my usual $60 for now.
