Daily spending report: $23

$3 - Lunch
$20 - Taxi

Trying to land a new job is expensive. I work downtown Chicago. I had a networking dinner last night so I drove to work but instead of taking my car out of the garage, I took a taxi to the restaurant. Valet dowtown or another lot could have cost me just as much.  

I pay $188 for 10 parking passes at a downtown Chicago garage using my employee discount. Otherwise it would cost me $31/day to park on the occasional days when I have to stay after work. Since I ran out of passes this month, that $188 was an extra expense I had to bear. I usually drive in to work no more than 4-5 times a month so I find that I need to purchase passes about every quarter.

Keep track of your job searching expenses, some of them can be claimed on your 2010 taxes.
