UPDATE: My Living Expenses in Mexico City
Of course, my living expenses have changed since moving here. I’m at the 9 month mark (can’t believe it) of living here. Here is the original post I did. These are estimates and I don’t spend this every month and some months I spend a bit more. Rounding has also been used. AND of course, these numbers can change if the dollar is weak to the peso (which it has been since moving here).
🍾 Webull - Deposit any amount and receive a free stock
Rent ($480) - This is supposed to change every month because my landlord thinks he’s slick by saying dollars instead of pesos. I give him $8200 pesos every month and he accepts it.
Life Insurance ($1) - Have to keep that
Health Insurance ($35) - In case my body needs to be brought back to the states and also includes health insurance where I can be reimbursed for anything medically related. I will also purchase a travel insurance policy one of these days since I plan to be traveling within Mexico more.
🦅 One Drone - Create amazing vacation videos with a new drone
Virtualpostmail.com ($15) - To receive mail from the states. The service scans the mail and lets me know what I have.
Telmex ($55) - I got my own internet service as the one in the building is not reliable and I NEED my internet to be reliable to make money. The internet is expensive here but WAY faster than anything I ever had in the US. I get 100mbps and could have gotten 200mbps for extra money.
Telcel ($30) - T-mobile finally cut me off and I had to get Mexican service. I get up to 7gbs per month, unlimited data for Facebook, Uber, and WhatsApp for the price.
🏝️ TravelSafe - Don’t ever leave home without travel insurance!
Anveo ($3) - A US phone number so people can call me. If you sign up, please use referral code: 7488707. Thank you!
Uber ($50) - I don’t drive and just use Uber. Each ride is between $3-10 depending on where I’m going.
Food ($250) - I cook now so my bill came down a little bit.
Entertainment ($75) - This includes going out to different events and eating out at restaurants.
🌻 Printful - Become an online entrepreneur and start an online store without inventory
VPN ($8) - Need this to access certain websites in english. Total about $995 per month
This list also doesn’t include bus/train fare, yearly or bi-yearly things like dental check ups and physicals, domain name, hosting (that’s why you need to donate :), and flights back home. Long term expenses like passport, driver’s license, tax filing fees, etc. etc. etc.
I think that’s it…
*UPDATE: I forgot my Spanish lessons for $129/month. So total is about $1125/month
