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!

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).

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.

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
