Weekly Spending Recap for Aug 29 – Sept 4, 2011

I am back from my long weekend from Detroit Michigan. It was my first time visiting Detroit and I didn’t really get the chance to explore the city because there just not enough time in my schedule. My main purpose in Detroit was to attend my co-worker wedding. So this weekly spending recap will be quit expensive and I am not sure what the cost of the trip until my friend give me the total for the expenses since he paid for everything during trip and I told him I will pay him back once we back in Toronto. So, here’s last week weekly spending recap.

Sunday September 4, 2011

  • Michigan trip – $200.00 (Just an estimate)

Total Expenses for this week: $444.74

I know this week was going to be expensive since I went on a trip to Michigan for my co-worker wedding for the long weekend. I budgeted about $400 for this weekend. I split the cost of the trip with a friend and my friend will give me a total, so I won’t know the exact cost until he tell me. This is just an approximate of how much I spend on the trip. So, the hotel is about $100, gas is about $75, and eating out and social activities like $50, and wedding gift is about $150. So this trip cost approximately $375. It’s not bad, at least it below what I budgeted for this trip.

As for buying lunch at work almost everyday this week, I just didn’t have time to go grocery shopping at all. I work double shifts four days straight, so I have no choice but to buy lunch at work. It was a pretty tough week for me, but I suck it up and had good long weekend in Michigan, so it’s all good.

Hope everyone have a good Labour Day!
