Friday Estimate

It’s Friday, which means it’s time to estimate how much we’re going to spend this weekend.

The Billfold will be running a couple of features on Labor Day, but we won’t do a check-in until Tuesday—so take that into account when you do your estimations. (Since I’m taking a vacation day on Tuesday, I won’t do my check-in until Wednesday.)

I’m guessing I’ll spend:

  • $5.75 on laundry
  • $60 on groceries, $15 of which will be a new bottle of Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion With Sunscreen
  • $200 on Lyft rides to/from airports
  • $90 on vacation food
  • ??? on souvenirs/gifts (I’m not sure yet what I’m going to do about the souvenir thing, and I need to set myself a budget before I leave)

I also thought I was going to go to the mall this evening and shop the Labor Day weekend sales, but… I was looking at the sales online and decided to skip the mall part and just shop from home. I’ll itemize what I bought—and how I budgeted it—later today.

Total estimate: $355.75 plus three question marks.

How about you?
