Rent & Renters Insurance
Currently flat-sharing with a family-friend to cut costs. Rent in East Village, Calgary isn’t too bad. Having lived in London and Lagos (two big cities), I feel the need to always be near transit, hence the location.
- Rent: $675 (my half)
- Renter’s Insurance: $12.50 (my half)
Groceries, Take Outs
This includes toiletries, and the occasional DoorDash or Skip the Dishes. Stopped dining out for now.
- Groceries: $150
- Take out: $40
I sometimes overshoot this budget by $20 – $40, unfortunately.
Dental, Medication etc.
My employer provides insurance, but as a term/contract employee, I feel it’s best to have this because I’ve had a contract not renewed and paying the full price for stuff sucks.
