Give Me Back My Five Bucks

Spending Recap: June 28-July 4, 2010

Monday 28th
No Spend Day – vacation!

Tuesday 29th
No Spend Day – vacation!

Wednesday 30th
No Spend Day – vacation!

Thursday 1st
No Spend Day – vacation!

Friday 2nd
No Spend Day – vacation!

Saturday 3rd
$125 8 days parking at Vancouver airport (that’s the price WITH the online coupon in the Economy Lot)
+$50 (Mom gave me some $$ for parking)

Sunday 4th
$33.89 gas
$5 Subway

TOTAL = $113.89

I wasn’t originally going to park my car at the airport because it’s just so expensive. But it turns out BF wouldn’t have been able to pick me up or drop me off as we had originally planned, and my mom asked if I would drive them to/from the ferry terminal instead of them taking a cab – which would have probably cost around the same amount as parking anyway. Plus, they paid for the entire Mexico trip, so it was the least I could do.
