Monday Check-In

It’s Monday, which means it’s time to check in with our weekend spending.

Ecofest was super-fun — I got to plant trees, ride bikes, participate in a demonstration about threats to Iowa’s tree canopies, and eat a bunch of food. $20.39 worth, including a bag of fancy popcorn.

I also received a pack of Warby Parker glasses to try at home, but I didn’t like any of them, so I ended up paying $253.98 for glasses from Target Optical. (The Warby Parker glasses were all twice as big as my face — like, my eyebrows were under the frames — which is weird because earlier this year I had to special-order a bike helmet due to my unusually large head.)

Total spending: $274.37, which is way more than the $160 I expected to spend this weekend, but I got to taste all kinds of locally-grown food and found a pair of glasses I really liked, so… worth it?

How about you?
