Weekend was mostly relaxing at home and eating.

I don’t want to think about this, but need to get back in to budgeting, so… I spent about $50 this weekend

Friday: 0? My firm hosted a happy hour upstairs and I went.
Saturday: 20. My (soon to be ex!) husband and I went out for a lunch with the kid, it was his last weekend in the city and it was gorgeous.
Sunday: ~60 in groceries, >50% of which was expensive stuff for a sort of impromptu goodbye brunch at my apartment.


I… don’t think I spent any money this weekend. We didn’t go grocery shopping; D went on Thursday because we urgently needed milk, and I’m going today because we urgently need milk again. My parents bought the toddler shoes/clothes and took us out to dinner.

No-spend weekend! Go me!

If you like it, please share the title! Or if you hate it.

$60 weekly groceries
$10 pork belly at the fancy butcher.
$35 dirt for the replacement raised bed in our backyard. The materials for the actual raised bed have been in our basement for an embarrassment of years.
$35 fancy needles for the pullover I am working on because I hate doing sleeves with the old needles and I didn’t ask the cost beforehand
$30 donation to the people who did the software we used for taxes


Friday: SSO was home for once on Friday, so we had nachos. This meant $7.48 on groceries.

Saturday: $3.17 on groceries at whole foods

Sunday: $4.48 on snacks at Trader joe’s for meetup; $13.15 for most of the rest of the week’s groceries at night at whole foods.

Total: $28.28 entirely in groceries. I think I can get through the week with the groceries I have.


I hope so. Haven’t tested it for watertight/weight bearing yet, but it looks promising.
