Summer is always a bit busy. The good weather means that everyone wants to go out and have fun, weekend festivals are in full swing and friends are able to stay out later to make use of the longer days.
When I was originally planning June it was a simple month. May isn’t over yet and so far we’ve got plans for every weekend in June:
Friend’s birthday: $100; Archery tag ($30/person), gift ($25), and gas. We’re going to skip the dinner portion of this.
Wine Tour: $60; I doubt I’ll spend it all but as a girlfriend is coming down that weekend the $60 includes any activities with her
Father’s Day hosting and tokens: $150
Hosting Family Barbecue for 12: $200
Baby Shower: $200 from Life Happens account
Crazy work week: I’m going to be working 13 hours/ day for a week. So I know I’ll be tempted to purchase lunch, buy coffee and generally treat myself. ML and I have chatted about how we’ll tag team this week to ensure that we keep our spirits up and budget down.
As it stands we’re going to have to get creative to keep to the budget we created for ourselves but it’s going to be fantastic.
How’s your June shaping up?
