Remember those numbers I posted below? I decided I could spend the following during my vacation:
$350 for food
$200 for things
$600 for experiences
Well, here's how it stands a week later. I now have this much left to spend:
$340 for food (my hosts provided for me quite nicely)
$53 for things (YIKES!!!!!)
$577 for experiences
I've got three weeks left to go, and at least one more planned shopping trip. I'm not going to lie to you - it's going to be very difficult to stick to the "things" budget. I love buying books and clothes here. But I will try.
The other two categories I think I can do, because this house is already bursting with more food than we could possibly eat in three weeks.
I'll keep you posted on how it goes.
