Weekend Expenses$$
Thu, 02-28-2013 - 10:13am

Its Thursday.

I can't believe its going to be March tomorrow. I have such a bad case of spring fever!

I have to work Saturday for 6 hours and Sunday for 4 hours. We don't have much for plans so hopefully it will be a low cost weekend.

What is everyone doing? Pricey or frugal this time around?

I see the value in this thread. Putting it all down in text, really helps ot plan. This is going to be a spendy weekend. I have had midterms this week so I was studying last w/end. Feeling a little guilty about time with the little ones sooooo...

- Fri taking DS1 to play ice hockey for the first time! Then a nice lunch out.  $86 inc babysitter for DS2.

- Sat we are going Costco shopping with a LIST. We have a $167 rebate and I do not expect to go much above that. We are also taking the kids to a free concert of their fave teletoons show. Then DH & I are going out for a romantic dinner. $85 inc babysitter for kids.

- Sun we'll take the kids to the community pool $11.

I know it seems like a lot but we don't spend much during the week.

I hope everyone has a great w/end!

Ugh, had to resign in a few times Tongue Out

I know I'm late but this is going to be a spendy weekend.  Not really dreading it but writing it down and actually looking at it will help keep me in check on unnecessary spending.

My little one is finally ready for an actual big kid bed.  She actually outgrew her toddler bed, plus the frame broke so it's time for a new one.  I also need to get her a new mattress for it too.  I'm replacing her dresser as well (current one is going to the salvation army) but I have 15% off of that so it'll save us a little.

DD's birthday party is this weekend as well.  Daddy is not home so mommy's feeling guilty and dropping the money for a Chuck E Cheese birthday party for her and 8 little friends.

We've made some significant dents in many of our bills since January 1st so I don't feel too bad about dropping some money right now.  Plus, we have enough extra left after each paycheck right now to be able to save a little too.

This is a costly weekend and it started Thursday.  DS DS had an optomotrist appointment and is trying out contacts ($199).  All is going well so when we go back in 2 weeks, I will buy a 6 month supply.  We went out to eat Friday for lunch ($45) and to Micheals ($17) and Target ($106) and to Whole Foods ($167).   I'll have to go back Tuesday for meat and produce for the rest of the week.  I ordered new history curriculum ($268).  DS has bowling league this mornng ($11) and team pictures ($13) today.  DH is stopping at Target to pick up some items I forgot.  Hopefully less than $30. Today should be a quiet day at home hearing about DH's London trip and vegging out.  Sunday we are renting a carpet cleaner ($60ish), cleaning fish tanks, and other around the house projects  All but the carpet cleaner is budgeted for and that came out of the vet fund since one pups is the reason the carpets need to be cleaned.
