Stupid money decision

I took my 12 yo dd, her best friend and my 18 month old to TGI Friday's. Money is kind of tight so it's usually a special treat. Last time we went I got water and a salad and the two girls got kids meals and shared with the baby since they eat like birds. I brought healthy food and juice and milk for the baby. The bill came to $23.00 and on the receipt you could take a survey and get an $8.00 coupon off your next visit. So the coupon expires tomorrow so I took the girls today but I let the waitress talk us into endless appetizers at $10.00 each and got a kids meal for the baby. Then I could not use my coupon, girls barely ate anything and bill was $43.72 before tip. I know this is stupid but I really can't believe I spent that much on lunch. Hubby is telling me to get over it and get on with my life. Anyone else make a stupid money decision this weekend?

Was it wise? No. But it's over and done with. We've all had moments.

Why couldn't you use the coupon?

I just bought a 1997 car with a blown motor for 450 bucks. Time will tell if that was stupid or genius.

The waitress said we ordered "special deals" the coupon was not eligible.

Meh... If you are still able to pay your bills, I wouldn't fret.

Maybe there is a Picasso in the trunk :-)

Wow. I would have been upset. But your dh is right. It's done now, so be happy that you had that time together and forget the bill.

Haha. I doubt it. But my fil says he'll fix it for us if we buy the parts, and he's excited about a new project. So hopefully it will turn out good.

Not this weekend, but I obsess over things like that.
