In this post we present an exercise around what it costs for you to live on a daily and monthly basis in your own country.
In this exercise, we determine how much it costs for you to live your life on a per-month, per-day basis. We focus on costs, not income or savings.
- Fill out the spend$/month in each category below.
- Then add up all the categories. This is your monthly spend.
- Divide by 30 (days in a month) to calculate you per-day spend.
- Take these figures and go to What It Costs to Travel – Short & Long Term. We explore how much it might cost for you to travel on a short-term versus long-term basis (under different spending bands).
