Friday 10.10.14

I love a Friday night relaxing at home, catching up with James, and spending some time with the dogs. The dogs get to socialize and burn some energy while I relax in the warm afternoon sun and hang with James.

Friday Spending Stats:

  • Dog Park                                                                                                 $0.00
  • Dinner at home                                                                                      $0.00
  • New Girl on Netflix                                                                                 $0.00

Total Spent on Friday      $0.00

Estimated Total Friday Savings:      $20.00 (on dinner out)


Saturday 10.11.14

My day started out with a morning run, filling up with my shake, and packing to head to James’ brother’s house. We enjoyed a delicious pre-bar crawl lunch where we ordered a few tacos and some drinks on special. After I’ve woken up with terrible hangovers the past two Sunday’s, I vowed to myself that I was going to stay sober (mostly) throughout the day to avoid a 3rd-Sunday-in-a-row-hangover. Not only did I save myself from a hangover, but I saved myself at least $30 on drinks (and calories)!

Saturday Spending Stats:

  • Breakfast: Shakeology                                                                           $3.23 $0.00
  • Birthday Lunch to kickoff our bar crawl                                              $20.00 (for James and I)
  • Bar Crawl                                                                                               $23.00

Estimated Total Saturday Savings:      $30.00
