Uganda Living Expenses – Not included in costs…

Most of these expenses should be taken care of through my remote job and business

  1. HOUSING – Thankfully the cost of living in Uganda is very reasonable and I will actually be saving lots of money once I get there. $200 – $600/month  (Usually paid 6-12 months in advance) Depending on where we end up living. I want to move to a smaller city, but most of the jobs are in the capital city.  I am frugal, so as long as it is safe, I am not looking to live anywhere fancy.
  2. UTILITIES (Electricity, Water, Internet, Phone) – ???  Will probably have 3 months saved, But this will be paid from my job/business.
  3. Life Insurance – $42/month
