@calamity Where are you taking the Illustrator class? I need to do that!
I haven't done a Friday estimate in too long. Back on track! It should be a relatively low-spend weekend. Tonight, I'm going out for a friend's birthday ($20). Tomorrow, I should go to the gym and work on some design projects (free). I'll probably buy breakfast first because that's what Saturdays are for ($8). I'm heading to Long Island in the evening ($18 r/t ticket). Sunday will be a lazy day in the 'burbs. Let's say $20 for misc. food/coffee purchases. TOTAL: $66
@highjump Yes, I am so excited for that day to come!
Moving right along! Student loans December 2014: $7,182.78 January 2015: $6,968.84 Savings December 2014: $5,409.40 January 2015: $5,709.40 Oh how I love seeing that gap narrow.
@lizziefresh YAY life changes!
@halloliebchen weeee happy birthday!
I'm going to have a very expensive weekend due to tonight's haircut ($90 including tip...I KNOW, I know). I'm working the side gig tomorrow ($0). I also need to go grocery shopping ($50) and am probably seeing Foxcatcher at some point ($15). Also gonna add $10 for breakfast Sunday or Monday (I have a three day weekend!). Estimate: $165. I'm a little stressed at the moment because I feel I need to quit my part-time job. It's all been a little too much lately, AND on top of that I'm starting a class in two weeks. But the weird thing is, most of the front of house staff is also quitting right now (I don't know why - it's not a bad gig)?? So I feel bad. Anyway, words of encouragement would be highly appreciated.
@BillfoldMonkey "$1000 is my mandatory minimum savings" YOU ARE MY IDOL. Seriously, that's awesome.
I estimated a low $50 and went over but not by much. I worked at my side job Friday night and Saturday day so that helped. I spent $13 on getting my eyebrows done (incl. tip), $24 on the LIRR to hang out in the 'burbs Saturday night (cost more than usual because I had to get my ticket on board one way...wah), $4 on snacks, and $24.69 on dinner at The Meatball Shop on Sunday night. Total: $65.69 for a pretty swell weekend.
Whoa, feels like forever since my last estimate! (more like, three weeks). I'm working tonight and tomorrow at my part-time job. I have nothing I really *need* to do other than laundry and maybe food shopping? I may be getting dinner with a friend on Sunday too. Going to say $50. Here's to a frugal January!
