I missed writing my Thursday: Most and Least post last week! I’m having fun with this weekly feature. If you want to try it out on your own blog, do it! Just be a sport and link back to my blog somewhere in the post.
Thursday, March 1 – Thursday, March 8:
Most Expensive Purchase: Ok, so this one is tricky this week. My most expensive purchase was a tank of gas, at just shy of $50 ($49.96). But the most expensive purchase that went on my credit card was $358 for some Phillies/Nationals tickets.* See below for details – this is nuts!
Least Expensive Purchase: $.50 for parking. Had to put it on my credit card. Feel free to judge my cash-carrying skills.
Most Exciting Purchase: Burrito from Chipotle, $9.16. Very delicious, as always.
Least Exciting Purchase: Lean Cuisine and other assorted food items that had annoyingly run out (like mayo, ketchup, etc.) at Target, $33.03.
Most Fun Purchase: A beautiful bouquet at Trader Joe’s for my kitchen table, $6.26.
Least Fun Purchase: A dozen eggs (to hard boil for snacks..does it get any less fun than that?) for $2.59.
Final Verdict: Due to Super-Cheap Weekend #1, this was not a very spend-y week! Go me!
*So apparently, the Nationals have gotten pissy that whenever they play the Phillies, Phillies fans buy up all the tickets and basically take over the stadium. So they’ve instituted a policy that you can’t buy online tickets with a credit card to a home Phillies game unless you have a Maryland, DC, or Virginia address. And they check the address you report against the billing address on your credit card. My dad’s co-worker wanted to buy tickets to a game for family and was lamenting the fact that it was impossible….and that’s when my dad called me up and asked me if I could put her family’s tickets on my credit card. I totally trust this woman, so it’s no big deal. Obviously, I’m getting reimbursed, but $358 is going on my credit card because the Nationals are going out of their way to make it hard for Phillies fans to get tickets. Have you ever heard of anything so bizarre?
