Financial Friday 113

Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]

Week 113. And it’s been a crazy one….


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.


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


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!


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.


Week 113

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….
