Man, I really had a good thing going on this week. I was balancing pricier days with free days - keeping an even kiel, you know.
Until Saturday. Damn.
Damn, damn, damn, damn.
The day started with lunch and coffee with my friend Laura, but as the evening progressed, plans of the carnival and beer fluttered through our heads. Then they became a reality. I guess after years of avoiding carnies, I forgot how damn expensive everything is at the fair. Needless to say, I spent pretty much my entire budget that day.
But this happened, so it was almost worth it:
That aside, let's do a little recap to see how one night caused my epic demise.
Wed 6/6/12: $0 for nada. (+$10)
Thurs 6/7/12: $30.32 for lunch, parking meters, and a few games of bowling. (-$20.32)
Fri 6/8/12: $10.67 for tall-boys and a snack. (-$0.67)
Sat 6/9/12: $71.07 OMG! WTF?!? (-$61.07)
Sun: $4.59 for PBR's. (+$5.41)
So, another epic failure of a week.
I'm not going to get too down on it, though. Here's a list that makes me feel better:
1. I had a lot of fun.
2. I picked up a second job.
3. I was so careful for many weeks before this.
4. I'm still tracking my spending and am more aware/guilty when I spend.
Yes, excuses to myself, but sometimes you gotta live.
Total weekly spending for Week Four: $136.00.
