Almost a NSD....

July 18th, 2012 at 04:35 am

Today I stuck to my meal plan and had oatmeal for breakfast, a sandwich and fruit for lunch and a hot dog for dinner. So, no spending for food.

Dd1 and DD3 and I have been discussing the girls trip this year. (DD2 cant go this year). I found airline tickets for real cheap to go to So Cali to see my BFF in the three of us agreed that should be our girls trip this year. I booked the tickets. We normally drive to portland and stay in a hotel. The airfare and a rental car were cheaper than our normal we will save $$ by going to SO Calif this year. AND I get to see my friend. (The girls consider her their aunt) We have been friends since we were 12. I am SOOOO excited. We will stay with my friend and spend the trip with her. We enjoy Portland, but it just seems to be getting worse and worse for gang activity and I am somewhat relieved to be making a change this year.

I did spend $$ to book the tickets. I save a little each week to pay for my part of the girls trip- so the money was already banked for this. It is so frustrating to book tickets anymore...the original cost looks great...but if you are taking a sutcase, want to pick a seat, want any fluff whatsoever, the cost goes up quikly. We opted for no frills, and will share one suitcase. Its just a two hour flight, so we will deal with assigned seating for the flight.

Otherwise, I did not spend on anything else today.

Tomorrow, I already have oatmeal cooked, a sandwich and friut are ready for lunch and I plan to make chikcen for it should be another no spender tomorrow!

I am just two weeks away from the trip to Alaska with the hub. Getting excited!!

Life is good!

    Did you get a good Southwest deal? I saw that they are having a big sale. I know I will need some tickets to get a Swimbaby home from college, but I'm not sure of the dates just yet. I'll probably end up booking semi-last minute and paying more. Ah, well.

    Alaska! We will be expecting some good storis! Smile

    Your planning has paid off! Good job!

    Thanks ladies...

    Swimgirl - unfortunately, Southwest doesnt fly in/out of our airport. (Maybe someday) For now, our choices are Alaska, Delta, United...and Allegiant.

    You can likely manage with carry-on and back-pack each to avoid checked luggage fees BUT it limits lotions & potions to allowables. Pack clothes in large sz zip bags, or compression bags & vacuum out air to wrinkle stage. It won't 'set' wrinkles in garments.' Fold handbag in backpack to replace purse or tote & roll casual togs.

    Take snacks as food is horrid

    snafu- you would think so...but NOW they are charging for a carry on- the same price as a checked bag. Your only allowed a purse or small backpack. ugh

    TR - are ALL airlines charging for carry on's? That is ridiculous!!
