It is the last day of April, and I am totaling up our expenses. I didn’t post anything for March since both of us were traveling out of the country for part of the month but for April, except for a few days in Bocas del Toro, this should be a pretty accurate accounting of what it has cost us to live.
House rent $385
Electricity $47.27 (no air conditioning)
Other $360.40 – ($65 for a car battery, about $105 at Do-It center for more shelves, tools, and misc stuff for the house. about $130 at PriceMart for liquor and other household supplies, $32 for more phone minutes, $15 for a lunch out, $9 at the pharmacy. )
I also went to the dentist – $250 for my new crown.
Which brings the total to $1359.06
If you add our expenses for the Bocas trip of $439.07 (For details about those expenses see this post HERE.)
The Grand Total $1798.13
For more information about where and how we live, see my first cost of living report HERE.
We will be traveling to the US again in May so I won’t post an expense report, but there should be one coming again in June.
