Financial Friday 45

Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]

Week 45 down. Here’s we go….

Transportation

All travel costs this week are metro runs: $0.19 each.

Accommodation

Rent for November was $5.67 per night.

On the first, I moved out of the house I’d spent the last few months in, and checked into a hostel. I know one of the owners who gave me a fantastic rate: $3.75 per night! It would have been a downgrade, but one of the roommates at the house got a dog that has an annoying habit of biting people so…. Yeah, getting away from the demon dog pushes the scales heavily in the hostel’s favor.

Food

Despite going out, and getting fairly drunk on Saturday and Sunday evening, I managed to keep my food budget under control. It’s so cheap here….

Other

Travel insurance: $8.64 per day.

VPN: $0.13 per day.

Amazon Prime: $0.33 per day.

On Saturday, there was a sale on a computer game. I figured 20% off was worth the final price tag: $21.66. It’s called Thea 2: The Shattering if anyone’s curious.

On Tuesday, I did laundry: $1.12. One of the downsides of hostel living is I can’t just buy a huge package of laundry detergent. It’s still worth the extra expense though.

On Thursday, I got ‘professional’ pictures taken for an ID: $1.12. I also picked up the paperwork to file for Georgian Residency. I didn’t have a pen with me so I still have to go back and finish the submission process, but I got a good start.
