Monday Check-In

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

Last Friday, I estimated that I would spend $250 on dinners out and a ticket to Juneau’s Celebration festival. I ended up arriving in Juneau just in time to catch the festival’s closing procession, and didn’t need to buy a ticket. I did, however, spend $67.14 on food and $14.99 on a pair of earbuds to replace the pair that broke in Portland. (You know how you can tell when your earbuds are starting to wear out, but you keep using them because they mostly work, and you should probably replace them but you keep putting it off, and then they finally become unusable in the first 30 minutes of a three-hour bus ride between Portland and Seattle?)

I also spent $25 to check a box of books on the flight between Portland and Juneau, which was an expense I had planned for but forgot to estimate last Friday, and my Tello phone bill went through this weekend, so that was $23.20.

Total spending: $130.33.

How about you?
