I decided that since I had the weekend free, I should go visit a friend in NYC. But, boy, oh boy, that town is expensive. Here's what I spent all my money on:
Money for bus there and back: $46.50
Drinks: $75 (I got her a few bottles for the liquor cabinet)
Shopping: $15 (book); $4.25 (umbrella); $28 (fabric for quilting); $46 (Sephora cosmetics); $36 (fancy new hat) Shopping Total: $129.25
Grand total: $305.75
I had a great time, and really needed to get out of town, so I think it was worth every penny!
