Financial Friday 36

Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]

Week 36 has come and gone. Let’s see where I spent my money….

Transportation

All transportation costs this week were for the metro, and they all involved going to some sort of language event. I’ve got a couple people helping me with language exchanges so there’s a lot of bouncing around town. For reference, each metro ride costs $0.19.

Accommodation

This is pretty straightforward. We changed months this week, and the number of days in the month with them. This change in the number of days is the reason the numbers change slightly.

Food

On Sunday, we (my roommates and I) hosted a barbecue. Food costs for that day are all BBQ related. The rest is a combination of grocery shopping, and going out.

Other

Travel insurance: $8.64 per day.

VPN service: $0.13 per day.

Amazon Prime: $0.33 per day.

On Tuesday, I bought a pair if hiking shoes: $57.83. Next week, I’m going to spend all day hiking. I’ve done a fair amount of walking in my current shoes, but never spent all day hiking in them so I figured I should get specialized shoes.

This is about average. So if you live your life like mine, this is roughly what you can expect to spend in a month. See you all next week.
