Maybe you did not yet find out but I just pointed out that you can't live on 1500 peso."auntieapple" said:now here goes guys and Granda I am not using you as a scapegoat but lets just use your calculations
Rental 700 peso
I dont know anywhere that you can rent a decently furnished one bedroom apartment for less than 400 pesos per week because remember our friend Sarah is probably not in a position to get a long let at the moment
It's called long term rent with waranty. And there are still people that rent anything decent for 700-800 peso a month all inn and it will be less if you share
100 pesos a week! are you another aenorexic Granada, Bull*bleep*, that means you can eat TWICE maybe three times max in a restaurant in one month and starve for the rest! Anyone who comes to enjoy BA will be going to restaurants at least 4 times a month especially if they want to network and meet people. I say you need at least 300 pesos a week to eat.
I never said food in a supermarket in Argentina so I won't know but it seems to me for 400/500 peso you can eat decently. This would be less if you share
another 1,200 pesos for food/restaurants/bars per month
Not a lot room if you are on a small budget. I spend about 3000 peso a month on everything without rent
Clothes 200 peso
well we can tell a man wrote that. 200 pesos is two pairs of jeans and if you want to work in an international company I suggest you smarten up.
Everybody wants nobody can
Insurrance 200 peso
you forget entertainment Granada, maybe football is cheap and you dont have an entertainment budget but I think
I have no budget, I spend what I want
400 pesos a month s fair
Ticket 1000 dollar for 12 months 240 peso a month
Depends where you go but if you live in europe its at least double that and more
Invest some time in it
also to rely on saving monthly for an annual ticket is pretty sad and worse what if you have an emergency and need to get home quick what then?
now what about service charges in your apartment telephone transport
300 per month
OK we'll skip the maid as obviously thats not something you do Granada, you are obviously good at washing plates as you dont eat out! well maybe on roadside truck grills
I never eat at home
it would be nice now that you are in Argentina to see it!
occasional weekend to colonia
ski trip to barriloche
check out salta?
Yes on 2 or 3 and then also Montevideo, Punta del Este, Mendoza, Cordoba, La Plata, Rosario, Igazu, Pinaropolos, Concordia, Chilecito, Cafayate, Tucuman, San Juan, La Roja, Santiago, Punta Arenas, IQQ, Arequipa, Lima, Tacna, Machu Pichu, La Paz, Santa Cruz, Sao Paulo, Brasilia, Iquitos
Have you already saved for La Plata or is your 3 monthly trip to Colonia to expensive?
Now does one here just intend to live "hand to mouth"?
surely we all like to invest in something, Ishould think at 27 one should be thinking of putting some money away for that nice apartment or does one these days just "live".
my total so far being rather meagre is
350 girli stuff
300 service charges/gas/electric
my total for living is
2,450 for flights and savings bringing a total to
7,000 pesos that is just over two thouand dollars per months FFS
if one comes to Argentina to live surely it is not to live like a hippie
and just for the record I never came here on a free ride, I earn my money, with husband or without.
I need about 70 to 100 euro a day, depending on what I do
