Monthly Spending Summary: April ’14

There’s not a lot to tell about this month really, other than that I’ve been having an epic and wonderful time at the farm (which also means I really haven’t spent that much money apart from a few random splurges on things I’ve wanted for ages). So I’ll just quickly get down to the nitty-gritty of my monthly spending…

Distance Travelled:
Nabiac to Forster and back – 29 miles
Total = 29 miles

Countries: Australia
Cities/Towns: Nabiac, Forster.
Transport Used: Car.
Money Spent (in GBP): £110.62 over 30 days = £3.69 per day!

Amazing. Cheapest month yet! And probably the cheapest month I’ll have in a very long while – May is going to see me head back to Sydney for a few weeks before an epic 2 days in San Francisco and New York on our way back to Camp for the summer (where somehow my monthly spending is always quite high, even though I don’t actually have to pay for anything!)

Breakdown of my spending (in AU$):april money monthly spending

Vacation: $105.02
Wardrobe: $42
Groceries: $39.02 (this is obviously all candy!)
General (random things): $13.87
Misc (gifts etc): $1.15
Total: $201.06

Biggest Expense/Unforeseen Splurges: This has to be my ticket to the TBEX (Travel Blog Exchange) conference in Athens in October (under ‘vacation’ above)…I’ve never been but always wanted to go and just randomly saw a tweet a couple of hours before the early bird sale finished, so of course I jumped at one of the last cheap tickets! Now all I need are flights to Athens and a travel conference buddy!
