I got to head back to Mexico this month, which always helps with the budget even though the flight down from Canada bumped it up a bit.  I also moved around quite a bit and shared a nice house with a friend for a week which added to the total.  There are 3 days in Ajijic, Mexico which were mostly paid for by someone else and that sum is not included in this total as it didn’t come out of my pocket.

This summary covers travel related expenses for 1-28 February 2017.

Location(s) Visited This Month

Transportation – $317.63

Food & Entertainment – $121.38

Miscellaneous – $313.08

Monthly Total:  $977.18

Average monthly spend: $785.31 ($214.69)*

* My average monthly spending target is $1k/mo. This number is the average for the months I’ve been working remotely so far.  The amount in parentheses is the amount I’m over or under my goal.

  1. I am so inspired by your story in Glamour Mag. I work for a Solar company (SunEdison) in HR with the flexibility to perform my job anywhere. However, my company filed Bankruptcy and I will have to find a new job soon. I am married and a mom and flexibility allowed me to manage both areas -work and home with ease. As I shift forward, I would hate to go back into HRIS in a traditional HR environment but looking for ideas to work remotely. Thanks for showing me, taking risk are great assets for us wanderers

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed it! I think more services like HR will start to be remote, so hopefully you’ll be able to find another job that fits your needs. Good luck!
