This weekend could easily have racked up a lot more of my budget . . . but I’m proud of myself that I took it ‘relatively’ easy and kept the costs down as far as possible:

Friday Night:
Food & wine – £15.00 (night in)

Saturday:
Family treat – £25.00 (Bribes so I could go to Christmas party)
Christmas party spends – £30.00 (Cabs, drinks, kebab)

*Note to employer: BRILLIANT party, thank you 🙂 Free beer always much appreciated.

Sunday:
Shirt for my son – £6.00

Total weekend spend = £76.00

Leap Year Weekend Spends

with one comment

I may be jumping the gun, but I’ll assume that Leap Year isn’t as major event to you as it is to me . . . being that the 29th February is actually my birthday, I like to take some time to wollow in the glory of my special day 🙂

My birthday is a special day to me, I just like it, it’s the one day in the year that I feel comfortable making demands and spending money on myself.

So . . . what have I spent on this glorious weekend?

Friday:
Train – £14.50
Breakfast – £2.75
Lunch – FREE (a colleague bought it)
3 x coffees – £4.19
1 x Subway – £1.99
Drinks – £8.50
Takeaway – £18.50
Total – £48.44

Saturday:
New jacket – £20.00
New jeans – £18.00
Mothers Day Gift for Wife from Kids – £19.50

Total – £40.18

*Why is it that EVERY time i go to Tesco I always spend over £40.00. There are some very clever marketing peeps at that company. They know exactly how to make you spend your money!!!

Total Weekend Spend – £149.11
