I need to write a cover letter! Going to a coffee shop after work to do this.
I went away upstate NY this weekend for a bachelorette party. I didn't do an estimate on Friday because I didn't know WHAT was going to go down. Didn't do too badly, though! I drove up with another friend who refused to take money for gas ("I'm a bridesmaid; I would've been driving up by myself anyway!"). I did spend $24 on road snacks for us (for both ways). Saturday, we did a wine tour on the Finger Lakes. I pre-paid my share of the limo weeks ago. Tastings added up to be $15. Lunch was $27 each. Somehow we made it to the bar that night where I spent $22 on pitchers of beer for all. My share of the hotel room that night was $50. I also spent $3 on an ATM fee at one point. TOTAL: $141
I have no real plans this weekend, other than working on some projects tonight (free!) and hanging out with the dude friend tomorrow night (unknown $). I need to keep things relatively cheap though since I'm already almost over my March fun budget with eleven whole days left. Let's say $75.
@andnowlights I JUST started estimates again, after a hiatus. It's ok - we go through ups and downs!
I went over my estimate this weekend, AS I DO. Friday night, I spent more than I intended at Trader Joe's, but I'm all stocked up ($50.13)! On Saturday, I got my eyebrows done ($13) and took the train to see a friend ($9). We went out to dinner ($31.53), then picked up snacks and beers ($17). Went to the diner Sunday morning, where I picked up the tip ($6). I also watched the first two episodes of Kimmy Schmidt - unsurprisingly great so far. TOTAL: $126.66 (estimated $120)
Happy Friday, y'all. My weekend looks something like this: -Trader Joe's after work today ($45) -Eyebrows did ($15) -Coffee shop, to work on some projects ($7) -R/T train ticket ($18) -Dinner with a friend on Saturday ($25) -Breakfast on Sunday ($10) Total estimate: $120. Enjoy your weekends!
@halloliebchen At some point, yeah I think so! My goal has become to pay off my loans by my 29th birthday (I'm currently two months away from my 28th birthday).
Ok, here we go. STUDENT LOANS January: $6,968.84 February: $6,779.17 SAVINGS January: $5,709.40 February: $6,029.40 My savings and debt now start with the same number! Yayyy!
Happy Monday, y'all. I totally went over my estimate of $66, but at least I'm checking in again, right? Ok here goes: Friday: I ordered Thai, which I did not include in my estimate, but it felt necessary at the time ($13). Then I went out for a friend's birthday ($21). Saturday: I bought breakfast ($11). I went running and cleaned my room a bit. I went to Long Island that night ($18 r/t). I bought Starbucks in Penn Station since I missed a train and had extra time ($5). Sunday: I bought breakfast for two ($22) and then mostly lazed around inside watching the snow fall. TOTAL: $93 (added $3 because there was an ATM fee in there somewhere)
@EmilyAnomaly I'm a huge fan of the peanut butter cookie! I need to try cashew cookie.
