Food – 7,249 THB

Food 7,249

I make food mostly by myself not eating much outside, this is to control nutrition to intake to my body for coming fitness competition.

Housing – 7,600 THB

My condominium costs 7,600 THB per month. This is a bit cheaper since my area is in Ladkrabang area east end of Bangkok.

Utilities – 1,170 THB

Electricity 409 (111kWh used)
Water 54 (18/unit 3unit used)
Phone 382 10Mbps Unlimited
Server 325

Electricity bill for me is actually low compared to normal use, I think. I do not air condition while sleeping and use only cold water for shower. I am used to this style since I lived in the Philippines before to save electricity bill as much.

Others – 1,652 THB

Credit card 720 Citi prestige card, M gen card
Laundry 80 40THB 2times
Transportation 246
Eyeglass 561 4,561 THB total, 4000THB company support
Broom 45
Dental (1000) Decay treatment and filling

Other miscellaneous cost is above. I count credit card annual fee monthly above. In my company, every year each staff has eye glass purchase support up to 4,000 THB so I bought this year also. Not necessarily but my eyeglass collection is getting more and more every year.

Broom I bought new one since I threw away old one when I moved to new room. When finding household chore items, I go to Mr. DIY since they offer many stuff in a very cheap price. I recommend Mr. DIY for readers to buy stuff for daily living. You might find what you need in economical price.

And last is dental fee… finally I finished my pending treatment for all bad points. Dental fee is reimbursed by the company so I will not count as my expense here.


Ok, that’s is the all my expense in September. From next month, October, I do not need to have weekend trip just for gym workout since all gyms in Bangkok is open. So travel cost will be reduced from next month. Let’s see and how much I can save for my investment for early retirement.

See ya!
