Hi, Everyone! This time, I would like to show you my living cost in July this time. As you might know, I live in Ladkrabang, Bangkok alone and I usually try to minimize the expense so that I can invest more to rely on the living cost from my investment not employment.
Total Expense in July, 2021
Total expense in July was only 18,814 THB in one month. The amount was quite low, one of reason is that I got refund of rent fee 5,500 last month. Actually my apartment owner and I completely misunderstood when the last month rent fee payment and I payed wrong in last month. Last month should be free based on my contract so I received refund of one month rent fee this time 5,500THB. And also I moved into new room in a condominium, the monthly fee is 7,600THB so the different of new rent fee and refund of one month rent fee of my old apartment shall be my housing cost in July.
Fitness – 2,490THB
|Gym||1,200||14 months for 16,800THB|
|Supplement||290||Zinc 120 tablets|
Fitness fee is almost same every month. thought gym is closed at this moment, I record here as my cost in July. My contracted gym, Jetts Fitess is not counting closure period as a membership period. Once they reopen the gym, they will extend my membership to cover total closed days.
Travel – 5,403THB
|Transportation||1,341||Pattaya 5 times|
|Hotels||4,062||Pattaya 7 nights, Bangkok 2 nights|
In July, I went to Pattaya 5 times for gym workout so I record transportation and hotel stay cost. I also stayed at Hilton Bangkok Sukhumvit 2 times during work from home days. sometimes, I do this so called staycation, just stay at the hotel in Bangkok then relax or use as my office for work-from-home.
Food – 5,003THB
Normally I cook myself so I do not spend that much for food. I consider the most about nutrition when it comes to food intake. Since I aim at fitness competitor in soon, I am very careful of food and nutrition to make my body. For somebody shares the same interest with me, I will make the post about food nutrition in this blog later.
Housing – 2,100THB
This month, housing cost is a little bit tricky since I received refund of one month for my old apartment, 5,500THB. And I moved into new room in Condominium. One bed room, 28m² Rent fee is 7,600THB including water heater, aircon and bed but excluding TV, microwave and refrigerator which I do not need. To remove these unnecessary stuff from the room, I got rent fee discount 300THB from 7,900THB original to 7,600THB.
Utilities – 1,822THB
|Electricity||1,113||(8THB/unit, 130units used)|
|Water||116||(18/unit 4 units used minimum 6 units)|
|Phone||268||10GB by True|
Utility cost is almost same as last month. I moved to condominium so from now on, I will pay bills directly to utility companies. Apartment normally charges the cost additionally to tenants so I expect my cost will be reduced from next month. Besides, I heard that the government will support household electricity bills so next month bills must be much lower than the bills in the apartment. I will report this in next month.
|Credit card||720||Citi prestige card, M gen card|
|Laundry||80||20THB 4 times|
|Clothes||58||Socks 2 pairs|
Last is other miscellaneous cost in July. Transportation cost is a bit high, one time I took taxi from Leo stadium to home (340THB) and another time, I had to go to office by taxi (120THB) since I overslept… lol.
I used Lalamove to bring all my staff from my old apartment to new one. The cost is amazingly low only 168THB (5USD only). I will show how it was in another post for your reference.
Ok! That is the all for my expense summary in July 2021. This month I did not spend so much thanks(?) to Covid restriction. I will continue this lifestyle then save more to invest for my future living.
