On Do or Do Not 1 Thing; There Is No Try

I need to write a cover letter! Going to a coffee shop after work to do this.

On Monday Check-in

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

On Friday Estimate

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!

On Monday Check-in

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)

@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).

On Monday Check-in

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.
