Friday Estimate

Happy Friday! Let’s estimate how much money we’re going to spend this weekend.

I’m volunteering at a College Entrance Essay Marathon with The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas on Saturday, so I will probably eat both lunch and dinner out, with a stop at both the bookstore and the grocery store on the way home. (I am serious about buying books, y’all.)

I’ve Changed My Mind; I Want to Buy Books

On Sunday, I hope I go nowhere and spend nothing, but I’ll probably go nowhere and spend money on laundry.


$40 on lunch and dinner

$60 on books

$75 on groceries

$3.50 on laundry

Total estimate: $178.50.

How about you?
