    For all you island veterans, how much per day per person is the cost of living, like for food, gas and what ever else you may need??

    Varies so widely depending on your lifestyle and preferences that a response won't help much unless you tell us how you like to live. Also this would probably be better in the non-classified section of AUC.

    I am on a strict budget where i buy a meal out less than once a week, filter water rather than buying bottles, etc. I don't drive that much. I spend about $6/day on food/drink supplies, about $1/day on gas (about $30/month) and my "entertainment" budget is usually like $75/month. I don't lease I car bought an old used one so insurance and plates/registration works out to ~$40/mo.

    That said I know of plenty of students here that buy a couple of fancy little coffee or similar drinks for at least $7/day, eat at least lunch and dinner out every day at >$10 per meal (say about $25/day) and on the weekends spend a good $200/wk or more on drinks, gambling, other "entertainment" etc. It is not too hard to find some people on a "wild" or expensive night that spend more than others in an entire month.
