Fun but a Little Expensive

June 10th, 2015 at 07:02 pm

A bunch of went on a tour of Milwaukee's only urban creamery yesterday. They're known for their artisan cheese, and we've been meaning to go for a while. I traded a friend some FB sales for admission price, so the $3 was free for me. But I did spend $18 on cheese. Yikes. And then we went to lunch to the tune of another $20. And then DD and I went to Dairy Queen after dinner.

Hmm--fattening and expensive. But fun! I got a couple of frugality/financial planning books at the library and heard about my friends' financial woes. I'm grateful we're in a better place than them, but sure wish things would turn around for them. Everyone is working extra jobs, buying used clothes, etc, but summer is lean for teaching staff. We probably should not have gone to lunch and should have packed lunches. We've discussed that before, but haven't quite got it together yet.

Nothing spent today although I have been shopping airfares as my MN girlfriends want a autumn hiking trip. They've already booked, but I can't find anything quite cheap enough yet. I think I have some time and am crossing my fingers that fares go down not up.

    I think that people are just being more prudent with the money that they have than ever before. I just revisited Mary Hunt's Debt Proof Living. And I'm considering PowerWallet for better online money management.

    Your day sounds lovely!!

    I got "Suddenly Frugal" from the library and am browsing it now. It had some good ideas.

    I will have to look that one up! I usually revert to DPL, but definitely like to broaden my PF horizons with new stuff!

    The creamery tour plus DQ sounds like a lovely way to spend some time. Big Grin
