Financial Friday 38

Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]

Week 38 here we go.


On every day except Saturday and Thursday, I took the metro once: $0.19. Or at least it counted as once. On Wednesday, I hopped on and off 3 times, but they were all close enough to each other that it only counted as once. I love the metro here.

On Sunday, some friends an I took a cab to a friend’s barbecue: $0.84.


The rent for this month comes out to $5.48 per day.

On Tuesday, I paid the combined utility bill (electricity, water, and pipe cleaning): $5.76 was my portion for last month. It’s gotten much lower now that we don’t have to run the air conditioner.


Other than going a little overboard on Friday, this was pretty simple. I mostly bought groceries, and cooked myself. Lately, I’ve been trying to limit the amount of carbs I eat which is rather challenging in a country that lives off bread and cheese. I’ve been mostly successful.


Travel insurance: $8.64 per day.

VPN service: $0.13 per day.

Amazon Prime: $0.33 per day.

On Friday, I topped up my data on my travel carrier: $15.00.

On Saturday, a book I pre-ordered came out: $10.69. It’s called Where is She: Travel to Trauma. Though it’s written by a traveler and that’s how it came to my attention, it’s about something that can and does happen globally.

On Monday, I topped up my data with my local carrier: $5.83.

On Wednesday, I got my teeth cleaned: $30.71. While this is significantly more expensive than last time, it’s still so much cheaper than what I would pay in the US. And I love the feeling of clean teeth.
