Weekend: April 9-11, 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.

NY Auto Show 2010!


I started the night with some yummy home-made mac n cheese. Then some friends called so I met them at Chipotle (but didn’t eat anything) and ended up going out to a bar after. One beer was bought for me and I did not drink anything else. It was a nice low key night with friends.

Friday Total Cost:$0


I spent Saturday at the New York Auto Show. My boyfriend covered the Ferry tickets and I paid for admission ($28 for both). We spent the next three hours walking around looking at all the neat cars, while I asked a million questions about engines. It was a great time! We ate a hotdog and shared a drink on the way out. Once home, we made a quick marinara sauce (since we had already spent enough money for the day) and watched a movie on Instant Watch.

Saturday Total Cost:$28


Sunday was a gorgeous day! I made pancakes for breakfast, spent the rest of the morning lounging around, then went for a run in the afternoon. I had leftover pasta for dinner and watched another Instant Watch movie.

Sunday Total Cost: $0

Total Weekend Cost: $28

  1. I spent $8 this weekend at yard and rummage sales. Had a great time and found some cool stuff! Just finished blogging about it :) Don’t think I spent anything else all weekend; much of the rest of the time I was cooking and getting my garden cleaned up and ready for planting. My strawberry, raspberry, and rhubarb plants are all starting to grow!

    1. You spent far less than me! That’s a great deal on the garage sales. I should look into them this summer to stock up on cookbooks as well. Oh, I’m definitely jealous of your garden!
