I have set a weekly budget for my trip. Most weeks, this budget should work just fine. In the latter part of my trip, my expenses will be higher because the shops are more sparse. Towards the end I may only be able to complete 1 or 2 shops per day.
My Frugal Miser Road Trip: Weekly Budget
- Income: $1,804
- Expenses: $925
- 7 nights hotel, $500
- Gas, $150
- Meals, $75
- Miscellaneous, $200
- Net Weekly Income: $879
Notes About Expenses:
- These shops cannot be completed on Sundays, and many cannot be done on Saturdays, either. I would like to supplement my income on the weekends since I won't have much else to do.
- I am budgeting $71 per night for hotels. Any opportunity I have to shop a hotel will turn that night's expense into pure profit.
- I am probably too conservative on meals, but I am going to try to eat healthy AND cheap.
