Financial Friday 55

Location: Thessaloniki [Greece]

Week 55….

Transportation

Zero. I didn’t go anywhere, and managed to avoid taxis.

Accommodation

Last week, I made a big deal out of my travel credit being applied to the AirBnB booking. While this is awesome, it shouldn’t reduce the cost since I effectively pre-paid the $300 with the annual fee. So, accommodation for now is $12.54 per night.

Food

Some days, I ate out and bought groceries. So the cost is rather high at times. Then, on other days, I used mostly what I’d previously purchased. This made food costs highly variable.

Other

Travel insurance: $5.57 per day.

VPN: $0.26 per day.

Amazon Prime: $0.33 per day.

This blog: $0.31 per day.

Skype: $0.08 per day.

Chase Sapphire Reserve: $0.41 per day.

On Saturday, I did laundry: $4.02.

Also on Saturday, I bought some knives: $5.75. The apartment only had butter knives, and those don’t work too well for cooking. So, 3 sharp knives for 5 euro. I think it’s decent.

On Tuesday, I got hit with a credit card late repayment fee: $25.00. Sometimes, I lose track of them. The lesson here: always try to keep track of your payment dates. It hurts when you don’t.

So, not terrible, and still under budget. But it pains me when I look back at how much cheaper the last few months were. See you all next week….
