Friday Estimate

It’s Friday, which means it’s time to estimate our weekend spending.

This weekend, I need to buy six items at the grocery store:

  • 1 jug of hand soap (to refill the bottles in my kitchen/bathroom)
  • 2 bags of lentils
  • 1 quart of plain yogurt
  • 1 pack of gum

This should cost… $13?

I’m attending the Washington State Book Awards Celebration on Saturday night, and I swear I will take the bus both ways. NO LYFTS! NOT EVEN IF IT’S RAINING! THEY’RE NOT IN THE BUDGET!

I’m also also spending the usual $5.75 on laundry.

Total estimate: $18.75.

How about you?
