Weekend Tally

March 16th, 2009 at 12:41 am

Got home from Athens cheer competition today. We had a great time! And the Gym Dawgs were awesome!

I had budgeted $300 for the weekend. Below is the breakdown:

Hotel $138
Gas $25
Admission $40
Food $164.01(WOW!!!!)
Shirt $20

Total $380(WOW!!)

I had budgeted $300 for the weekend. I grossly underestimated the cost of eating out! We had breakfast at the hotel this morning...could have gotten it cheaper if we had gone out to McDonalds or something, but it was convenient(that is how they get you!). Fortunately, this is the only competition that requires an overnight stay this year.

I do have a thumbs up for the weekend. The competition had all the usual things for sale. But in addition, they had a HUGE table of purses. They were oh so cute! Had matching wallets too! But I resisted! I kept going back and looking at the one I wanted. But in the end, I remembered about our vacation and didn't purchase the purse! That was a huge thing for me!!! Another "I'm so proud of me" moment!

    Oh...and we learned a valuable lesson. We are purchasing an air mattress for the Jekyll Island trip. Our daughter had to sleep with us on this trip and I have a huge crick in my neck!

    Well, you came pretty close to your budget. Maybe next time you have an overnight stay, you can pack some breakfast type foods to avoid the restaurant.

    Good for you avoiding the purses though!

    Yes - great job avoiding the purse! And I'll bet you'll do better on the food on your new trip ... Was this the first time you kept track of how much you actually spent? It's eye-opening, isn't it?

    P.S. - I'm looking at the side bar and seeing how great you are doing on the "no power interruptions" goal ... I remember when you first joined the blogs and that was a big issue ... AWESOME JOB!
