Financial Friday 28

Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]

Week 28, here we go….


On Saturday, I rode the metro twice. So exciting right? And that’s it.


So there’s the pretty steady rent.

Also on Saturday, the gas bill (for the oven/stove) was due. After splitting 4 ways, it came to a whopping $1.31. Ah Georgia, how do I love thee; let me count the ways….


Pretty standard. Buy groceries, cook groceries, don’t spend a lot of money on food. I did go out Saturday though so the bill was a little higher.


Travel insurance: $8.64 per day.

On Saturday, I topped up my plan with my ‘travel’ carrier: $25. I’m sure I’ll be glad I have this once I start moving around again. For now though….

Also on Saturday, I bought a dog whistle off Amazon (because they seem to be impossible to find here): $9.98. Having it shipped to Georgia will probably cost more than the whistle, but sometimes you just have to bite the bullet. There are a couple dogs owned by neighbors that don’t care how loud they are. The idea is going to be to eventually train them to stop barking so much. If all goes well, the owners won’t know what happened.

On Monday, my Georgian phone plan came due: $0.41. It’s a pay-as-you-go plan that I’ll probably never use, but it’s there if I need it. What I do use is the additional data plan which is very affordable; I think I’ve mentioned it in a previous Financial Friday post.
