What is everyone doing this weekend?Will it be frugal or spendy?

It is supposed to snow today. Give me a break.....

I am working this weekend so hopefully that will keep me busy and not spending. Other than that I have no plans. I wanted to bbq...............stupid snow.

Have a good weekend everyone!

i tried to post on this before the weekend began,  but it didn't happen.  so in retrospect:  not a spendy weekend at all.  grocery money at the grocery store.  that's been it.  playing outside because our weather is (finally!) nice enough.  visiting with friends but our contribution was food out of grocery money.  cleaning house today and getting ready for the week.

I've had times too where I have decided that I don't want to come "fess up". The good news is that it has also stopped me from unnecessary spending. For example, I almost spent another $30 on crafting stuff (someone was getting rid of her collection and selling unused stuff at less than half price) but then I though to myself, do I really want to come here and tell you all that I'm desperately trying to pay down debt, but that I NEEDED those things? Not overly! Also good job on the house sell! I have been battling with this for a while. I hate the work my house involves but there is so much that would need to be done to sell. My friend is an agent and the last three comparables in my neighbourhood went for above asking the first day! Almost $100k more than what I paid. BUT I would need to do some major work before I could even think of selling. So I am going to make the best of it and make a list of things that I need to do in the next three years. Then I am going to try and tackle one thing a year until they are done. We shall see how that goes!

I'm on my new tablet a lot now so I read but don't post.

I also didn't want to tell you folks how much money we spent last w/end. It was outrageous and I didn't even get what I wanted - a living room bookcase/storage item. DH talked me into a kitchen buffet...for $500. Plus the tablet $400...plus other stuff...

This weekend we need more stuff but like ink/paper/cables/etc that I am sure will add up.

But DH has been working tons of overtime so we are not overspending...just not snowballing...one the bright side we have been great about not eating out! We made the decision to not sell our home so we are fixing it up to stay.

ivillage is being a pain and it takes forever to log in! I suspect people have just about had it! I spent $50 on crafting supplies! Yikes! I had saved the money for it but its still hard to see it go! Other than that just some groceries!

A quiet weekend. Having lunch with ex-girlfriend. Teaching & working out, grading. Having dinner with friends. (Bought dessert for this: $12). 

I already did the spending: I took a girl out for a dinner: $70. Alas, I'm not sure about this. Our conversation was awkward. I couldn't be smart and funny the way I normally am when I'm comfortable. I thought she seemed distracted. But we were both trying to talk to each other, and at the end she said she'd text me. (I was surprised, because I almost told her: thanks for giving it a shot, but I guess we don't really have chemistry.)

Hello Everyone!

It's supposed to rain/snow in Calgary this whole weekend as well, and considering all my projects are due next week and finals are around the corner, I am hoping not to spend a penny this weekend as I will be inside/busy studying. Might even come to work for a bit tomorrow as there is a lot I need to catch up on.

Happy Weekend, hope it's a frugal one! :)
