Financial Friday 107

Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]

Week 107….


There’s just a cab ride on here: $1.18. It was late, and cold outside so I got it to stay warm.


So through Sunday, I was on the weekly AirBnB rate: $13.39 per night.

On Monday, I negotiated a monthly rate with the AirBnB host: $300 total or $10.34 per night. In hindsight, I should have gone through the app for two reasons. 1) the host just took the weekly rate and multiplied by 4. While AirBnB did offer a weekly rate discount, it offered a much higher additional discount for monthly bookings. 2) February is a short month. In the app, I could have put in 30-31 days and gotten the same rate rather than being limited to this leap year’s 29. Live and learn….


Travel insurance: $5.03 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.

Passport: $0.03 per day.

Password manager: $0.16 per day.

On Friday, I bought a video game pack: $38.50. It included Master of Orion 1 + 2, and the one simply called Master of Orion. I have a problem….

Also on Friday, my local carrier was running a sale on data packages which I grabbed: $3.47.

On Monday, a friend was trying to make a ‘normal’ phone call with my phone (I usually use an app that just uses data). So I bought some minutes to be nice: $3.47.


Week 107

So…a little on the expensive side, but not horrible. See you all next week.
