What did I do/buy this weekend? (October 22, 2017)

Hello, everybody! It was kind of a quiet weekend for me… Not much to do… 😛 But I will tell you guys about it anyway!

On Saturday, LOCMom wanted to get a Classic Monopoly board game box for her Monopoly game, so we went to our infamous Goodwill for one! And sure enough, after searching for like 5 seconds, I found a Classic Monopoly game in the board games section! LOCMom only wanted the box, so everything worked out! As for me, I looked around Goodwill and found some blank greeting cards and a fun little vintage Garfield game! The blank greeting cards in the end ended up being cards you can only write on one side with, so I put those in our donation bin to donate. Boo, that’s $1.19 I’ll never see again. : ( But the vintage Garfield game looks like a very fun game to play!

And since I have been dieting, I always designate every Saturday as my cheat day! 😀 So… For my cheat meal, I bought some Cool Haus ice cream that was mint chip flavored! Oh man, was it gooooooood. Also, checked the scale on Sunday after that 800 calorie ice cream pint meal and I didn’t even gain anything since I kept my calorie intake under 2000. 🙂 Woot woot!

Also on Saturday, I put together my Halloween cards that give out every year to friends and family! Here’s an example of one!


Mind you, these cards took around 3 hours to put together in one day, so they are a labor of love. 🙂 I really like making out holiday cards to people because it helps me to keep in contact with them! And some of my friends and family really like to receive cards, so I’m happy to send them off each holiday month. 🙂 Next month, Thanksgiving cards!

Then I finished off the night by playing Animal Crossing. Man, I love that game. If only paying off something like debt were as easy in real life as it is in Animal Crossing, haha. 🙂

Money Spent on Saturday

  • Garfield Board Game – $4.19
  • Blank Greeting Cards Pack – $1.19
  • Cool Haus Ice Cream Pint – $5.49
  • Mushrooms – $1.26 (for 4)
  • Bananas – $0.85 (for 3)

Total Amount Spent: $12.98

On Sunday, I just stayed home all day. Stuck to my diet, exercised, did laundry… You know, that kind of stuff. 🙂 Still have to finish off the day playing Animal Crossing at some point, haha. Good news for my Animal Crossing town! The third and final bridge is finally put in! Now, I will be able to maneuver across my town’s map pretty easily now. 🙂

Money Spent on Sunday

Total Amount Spent: $0.00

So all in all, a very quiet weekend! Not much spending this weekend which is a good thing! Hope I can keep it up! 😀

Sorry about the lack of pictures. Quiet weekends along with boring weekends means not a lot of pictures. I’ll try to take more pictures next weekend! 🙂

How was your weekend?

    1. Yes, Garfield is adorable. 🙂 I used to have my own collection of Garfield stuff, but donated most of it when I didn’t want it anymore. 🙂 But I’m hoping this board game will be fun to play! It didn’t come with instructions, so I will just have to guess at the rules, haha. ^ _^


  1. My weekends are usually not very exciting, but last weekend was quite busy. Friday night we went to a benefit for a friend of ours who was in a bad motorcycle accident. On Saturday, my in-laws came for a visit, and I later went to see an elderly friend who is ill. Thankfully I got to relax on Sunday…and do laundry and housework. Whee! 🙂

    Here’s some info about a Garfield game I found:
    Not sure if it’s the same game, but there’s a brief explanation about how to play it.


    1. Sounds like you had a busy weekend! Sorry about your friend though. : (

      And yes, I do believe that is the game! I found those same instructions, but they didn’t explain much… But I got lucky when LOCAunt found the instructions to the game already in the box! I didn’t think about looking under a cardboard part of the game for them. 🙂
