Budget Plan for May

How do you budget when you don't have money? Teehee. As of the moment, we are on the negatives. We didn't want to, but we had no choice but to borrow money from an officemate just so we can go to work till Tuesday and leave some food for my cousin when we go to Nha Trang and Dalat. By the way, that trip is virtually free thanks to the Natural English School. We'll be going on that trip with about 20 or so people from April 30 to May 3. Unfortunately, there is a fee for entrance and the rides at Vinpearl Land, a cable car ride and one other thing. We've been given no choice but to go on that trip because we don't have anything to eat at the house, plus our seats and accomodation were reserved a long time ago.

Anyway, to start off, here's the list of bills and other things we need to pay for in the month of May:

  • 8,400,000 vnd - 3 months rent and deposit for the new apartment (1,600,00 vnd was paid in advance: borrowed $100 for this)
  • 2,500,000 vnd - 10 months payment for the internet (under contract)
  • 1,800,000 vnd - re-upholster sofa that the dog, er, destroyed
  • 600,000 vnd - rent a motorbike
  • 500,000 vnd - utilities
  • 200,000 vnd - taxi fare for one day
TOTAL= $862.50 (no budget allotted for food yet)
and the catch... we only have $880 to spend for all these payables and food allowance =)
