  • I was very $$ aware this weekend also.

    DH went out of town Friday-Sunday and I just KNEW he would spend all this $ while gone.

    So, the kids and I ate at home all weekend long, we didn't do anything that cost money for entertainment. We went to the mall and played at the toyland, we had picnics on the living room floor
    and just mostly stayed in to keep from using gas in dh's truck.

    Also, I got a huge shock when dh got home. He must have actually absorbed some of what I have been relaying from here. He took a little grill with him (he went camping and to some races) and ate hotdogs and brats he took from our stock in the freezer. He said he only bought food at the races 1x and it was a cheap snack. His weekend away with the guys cost him one tank of gas and a small portion of the campground fee.
    That is HUGE for him!
