Another Weekend Gone By!

It's Sunday night and I am going through what I spent. I went out to a fun dinner downtown on Friday, saw seals at a local cove today (free!) and did a bunch of chores/errands. How much did I spend?

Dinner & a drink @ Hard Rock Cafe on Friday, $23
Groceries to last me through the next week, $27.97
Movie, $9.50

Total: $60.47

My weekend was fairly low-key except Friday night when I went out to dinner. I watched some TV, did some budgeting, set up online bill pay, hung out with roommates/friends and washed a LOT of dishes by hand. (We are still waiting for a replacement dishwasher from our landlord since the current one was broken upon move-in... it's 20 years old!) I am really looking forward to next weekend - it's Labor Day weekend which means a 3.5 days off AND my Mom is coming into town to visit! :) How was your weekend?

That's not bad for the weekend!! Oh, and tonight I'm going to do the "what's in your wallet" post...ha. I like that idea.

I think you did pretty well this weekend....

Sorry about the dishwasher! That sucks!

it's interesting how one meal out can cost the same as a whole week of groceries...

I find though that as I've gotten more into fresh produce, and eating better, my grocery bills have skyrocketed too. Greens, fruits, fresh meat/fish- they're all pricy!! But still costs less than eating out.
