I’m so excited it’s finally the weekend! We’re spending the weekend seeing some live music. Tonight a Michael Jackson cover band is playing for free in our city, so we’re heading downtown to watch. This same band used to play in my college town, and it was always a great time.
Tomorrow we’re driving about an hour to see a Wallflowers concert. I bought the tickets two months ago for $15 each, so we’ve already paid for them, and they won’t affect our summer budget. The challenge will be avoiding spending extra money. I’m sure we’ll be tempted by overpriced food and drinks at the show, so we’ll have to be on our best behavior to ensure that this fun event doesn’t mess up our budget for the month. Wish us luck!
Here are some good reads from around the frugal blogosphere:
- Bargaineering shares 5 things to do when you start your first real job. I wish I had started this stuff right away instead of wasting two years of my career overspending and not saving enough.
- Small Notebook, the mastermind behind the no spend month, just finished her first no spend week of this summer. Her family’s commitment is inspiring!
- Northern Cheapskate found a cool tool for sharing recipes online.
And from the Pecuniary Associates:
- Pecuniarities saves money on clothing by shopping in the juniors section. Great method if the clothes fit!
- Counting My Pennies has some advice for retirement saving.
That’s all from me for the week! Enjoy the weekend!
