Weekend: January 29-31, 2010


Every weekend, I will detail my activities and expenses to provide an example of how to implement a frugal mindset while still having a fun and active life.


On Wednesday, I went out for drinks with friends and spent $9. I considered that my “weekend money” so I really wanted to lay low over the weekend. Friday night, I did just that. I watched a movie, made myself dinner and just relaxed at home.

Friday Total Cost:$0


Saturday was another loungy day. In the evening, some friends came over to play a game of scrabble and chat for a bit. That was more enjoyable than going out to a bar again. Plus, it was cheap!

Saturday Total Cost:$0


I made plans earlier in the weekend to go bowling with some friends Sunday evening. Since I hadn’t spent money the prior two days, I felt that this spending was justified. We played two games of bowling which cost $13.75/person (including shoe rental). I didn’t buy anything else there and spent the rest of the night relaxing in front of the roku.

Sunday Total Cost: $13.75

Total Weekend Cost: $13.75 (yay!)
