I pay €1200 in monthly rent for a fully furnished apartment in one of the suburbs of Lisbon.
I go out to eat about 1-3 times per week and spent an average of €120/month. Eat out in Lisbon is quite affordable. I spend about €10-15 per meal.
Again this doesn't include food/restaurant meals while on travel. Those goes in my Travel Budget.

At first, I was shocked at how much it was on a monthly basis. But then I realized that it is still much less than living in the United States where just my monthly insurance premium was $675/month.
I got new prescription glasses which cost €631. This is definitely more than I would have paid in the U.S. so lesson to me to get my glasses from one of the those online websites and have a friend bring them to me in the future.
