It's MARATHON WEEKEND!!!! I'm going to lay super low tonight and tomorrow. I need to buy some groceries, including pasta and bread for tomorrow's carbo-loading feast. I also want to buy some tape or maybe iron-on letters to put my name on my race day shirt? Idk! I haven't really thought that out yet. Total estimate: $50. Of course, the race itself cost $260(!!), but I paid that months ago. Also, if I decide to buy some fancy NYC Marathon branded apparel at the race expo today, that'll totally blow my estimate.
@annev17 Ugh, re: the comments on her clothing. I hate that the video even needs to begin with the words "...wearing jeans and a crewneck t-shirt." You know, because had she been wearing a short skirt, she would've been "asking for it." :(
I buy lunch once a week. I usually go to Whole Foods or sometimes Sweet Green for their Guacamole Greens salad. Considering it's a once-a-week treat, I should probably branch out more, huh?
Good morning, all! I went upstate NY this weekend for a college friend's wedding. It was a lovely time. However, I totally underestimated the amount I would spend specifically on cabs to and from the airport once up there, so I ended up spending a lot more that anticipated. The gift, cabs, additional drinks, airport breakfast, plus a quick grocery run on Sunday night all added up to $255.65, over my estimate of $200. Worth it! Also, this is the final week leading up to the NYC Marathon!!!AAAHHH!!
I've been in meetings all morning so I'm late to estimate! I'm going out of town for a wedding this weekend. That'll be $100 for the gift. Then there's the money I'll be spending on cabs, my share of the hotel, lots of airport coffees, etc. I'm going to say $200. Let's hope it's less.
My estimate was wayyyy off, both in dollar amount and modes of spending. Here goes: Friday, my friend canceled dinner on me, so I stayed in and made pasta. Great unexpected money-saving evening, right? WRONG. Because I also decided to use a 20% code I had for Sephora and ordered a bunch of stuff online. Total damage was $102.34. Makeup is an embarrassingly expensive hobby. Saturday, I went for a long run in the morning and treated myself to iced coffee and a muffin ($6). I picked up a dress from the dry cleaners, to be worn to a wedding next weekend ($10), and also some groceries ($16.42). The rest of the day was pretty low key. Sunday, I had my first day of training at my new part time bakery job which consisted of A LOT of product sampling! After all that free eating, I went to Smorgesburg with friends and spent $11 on more food. TOTAL: $145.76, over my estimate of $86.
@crenb Happy birthday!!
Happy almost weekend, all! I'm going to dinner with a friend tonight ($25). Afterwards, I'm sure I'll continue my Netflix binge of a terrible show I've been weirdly into (ok, it's Revenge). Tomorrow morning, I'll run and maybe grab breakfast ($7), Then I'm going home to the 'burbs for the afternoon ($9 for railroad). I have an out-of-town wedding next weekend and I'm pretty sure the dress I want to wear is somewhere in my parents' house. Saturday is also a close friend's birthday so I'm going to estimate $20 in case we do something that night (although she doesn't seem into it this year). Sunday, I have my first day of training at a part time job I'm starting. I'm excited because it's at a BAKERY but also nervous about the two job thing. After that, I'm meeting up with friends at Smorgesburg ($15). I'm going to tack on another $10 in case I pick up random grocery things. TOTAL: $86
@garli No, I work in publishing. I meant to say direct manager. I work for a British company and I feel like the term "line manager" may be a UK thing? I never hear my other friends say it, now that I think of it!
