Friday Estimate
Mike Dang

Hurray for Friday! Next week, I leave for 10 days in NYC, which will undoubtedly be spendy (although well worth it). So I hope to keep expenses low this weekend, but actually as I’m mentally computing it all, I’m not sure how successful I’ll be.

I need to do a BIG grocery shop this week, and I think it may cost about $150. This evening we’re eating in, but tomorrow night we’re going to a nice-ish restaurant for dinner that I think will probably add up to $75. Then we’re going to a bar for a friend’s birthday — I’m guessing a drink for me, my husband, and my friend, hopefully no more than $25?

On Sunday a friend is coming to our place and I’m making breakfast. I don’t think I’ll be going out much. But knowing my penchant for buying things online, I’m going to throw in another $30.

Total = $280, oy.
