Friday Estimate

Thankfully, I don’t have much planned for the weekend, but I still have to spend a fair amount of money. Fridays are usually a night of silence and laying on the couch watching TV, but I have no food in the house, so I will probably order dinner. I’m guessing that’ll be $15 if I’m feeling fancy (Seamless) or $9 if I’m not (tacos from the taco truck.) On Saturday, I will drag myself to Ikea with my sister to buy a dining table and chairs and hopefully nothing else — if all goes according to plan, I won’t spend more than $250. Sunday, I’ll do some work before going to see “Moonlight” with my sister ($13, but I already bought the ticket) and then will have dinner at a friend’s house, so that’s free. I should bring a bottle of wine, so let’s say $12 for that.

That brings me to an irritating $290, rounding up for the inevitability of Seamless. What about you?
