Financial Friday 113

Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]

Week 113. And it’s been a crazy one….

Transportation

On Saturday, I took the metro to hit up a market: $0.17. My timing was impeccable since the next day (Sunday) the Georgian government announced their “no more than 10 people together” policy. That resulted in a lot of businesses deciding it wasn’t worth staying open.

Accommodation

The AirBnB is (for now) $9.68 per day.

Food

This dropped off a cliff. Most restaurants are closed due to the ‘lockdown’ (it’s not really a lockdown, but that’s a nice, short way to describe it). The few that are still open only have take-out. So….my food bill was limited to grocery store runs. That saved me a lot of money!

Other

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.

So yeah, this situation have been amazing for my wallet. It also ‘helps’ that the exchange rate is moving in my favor. Between the lack of tourists and the global US Dollar rush, there’s a huge demand for foreign (for Georgia) currency.

See you all next week….
