We had three no spend days and the good news is that it was all budgeted for or came out of personal money! Something we were proud of was that we made the choice to give up the rest of our date money and took what was left over from the grandma dinner fund to go buy a weedeater, extenstion cord and a few other things to make doing yard work a lot easier. We didn’t spend money that was budgeted or anything like that. We had saved enough money to take his grandma out to eat wherever she wanted–turns out that for the three of us it only cost us $25! And was extremely filling and fairly healthy. (We went to a local sandwich place)
Gas prices dropped lower which is nice–we filled up more of our tank for a lot less than normal. Which is good because this week we will be driving a lot more than normal–on Wednesday, we are going out to his parents place to go swimming all day long and then barbequing for his relatives that night. And on Friday, we are going to housesit for his parents for the weekend. Oh the horror of having the pool right there for the entire weekend!
This weekend flew by for me. On Friday we rented some movies and ate Chinese food as our date and got some of the housework done. On Saturday we shopped, cleaned and took his grandma out to eat. And then on Sunday, I got to go into work for 5 hours or so. Boo! But it did let me not have to take a vacation day as I didn’t really work on Tuesday and got me a jump start on today! So it was okay I guess.
How was yours?
