On Friday Estimate

Tonight, I'm going to Smorgasburg in Central Park and then probably out for a few drinks ($40). Tomorrow, I'll go running (free!) and probably buy iced coffee and a snack/lunch ($10). I also need to buy more fruits/veggies ($15). On Sunday, I'm going to a one-year-old's first birthday party with family ($10 for train ticket). I'm going to give myself some wiggle room and say $85. But if I end up buying new running shoes which I need, it'll be closer to $200.

On Our 1 Thing: Remembering to Do 1 Thing, Oops

My 1 Thing is to call Sleepy's! I bought a mattress and bed frame in the beginning of August. The bed frame was on back order for a month and they were going to call me once it was in store. It's been six weeks and I still haven't heard. Not that I HATE sleeping on a mattress on the floor, but the bed frame HAS been paid for so...

On Monday Check-in

@ATF I went to Flour for the first time this past weekend while in Boston! I was sad they didn't have the homemade oreos out (maybe because it was morning?), but i DID get a brownie. It was amazing.

On Monday Check-in

I had a lovely weekend up in Boston with my sister, mom, and sister's best friend! We went wedding dress shopping. She did not Say Yes, but it was a lot of fun nonetheless. My mom drove from NY, so transportation cost $free.99. I only spent money on meals and snacks and a Starbucks card reload. Total was $47.90, well under my estimate of $100. Hooray!

On Friday Estimate

I have no idea how to estimate this weekend! I'm going up to Boston to go wedding dress shopping with my sister. Not sure what might come up, so I'm just going to estimate $100 and hope I stay under.

@LookUponMyWorks A few weeks ago, I discovered that Say Yes to the Dress is on Netflix and I CANNOT STOP. Your Friday night sounds like a dream.

On Monday Check-in

Helloooo, Monday. We meet again. Friday, I did laundry ($5.75 worth of quarters) and went to bed just before 10. Glorious! Saturday, I ended up getting lunch with a friend, which I hadn't included in my estimate. We had amazing lobster rolls ($22.23) and ice cream ($4.50). I also had to use an ATM ($1.75 fee, boooo!). I stopped by the organic food store near me to pick up Clif shots for running ($3.36). That night, I went to the beer garden in Astoria for tasty beers and meats ($26). Sunday morning, I had a long training run which was actually lovely, thanks to the break in humidity. I bought a post-run chocolate milk from the bodega ($2.25). Later, I met up with friends in Prospect Park for continued weather-enjoying. On the way home, I picked up some produce for the coming days ($9.45) and Vietnamese takeout for dinner ($12). Estimated $85 and spent $87.29. I'll take it.

@cryptolect Iced chai lattes are the best. Whenever I'm up for a free drink on my Starbucks rewards card, I'm all like: ICED CHAIII I'm coming for you!

Tonight, I'm going to be really exciting and do laundry ($5 in quarters). Tomorrow, I'm going to go for a run or to spin class (free or prepaid). Then I should probably clean around the apartment (also free). I have plans to grab drinks and possibly dinner with friends that night ($30). Sunday, I'm doing a long training run (yay marathon training for keeping me from spending money!)(except that $260 entry fee, womp womp). A friend mentioned she wants to do a picnic/outdoorsy day in Prospect Park, so I'll probably head over there in the afternoon ($20 for snacks). I went grocery shopping last night, but I'll need to pick up more produce on Sunday ($15). I also plan on getting a manicure at some point because, yeah! ($15). TOTAL: $85
