It might see you safely through to the other side of dinner tonight, if you're not too profligate

Re: Is 320chf enough to live on?

no worries, you will make it until next month except you spend all that money
for expensive food or drinks/other nightlife...........
Go to work, buy cheap food, stay away from bars (and nightlife ).

Re: Is 320chf enough to live on?

You can certainly eat cheap right now. Buy a few bags of dried pasta then forage. Wild garlic is just sprouting now so you can pick the leaves and make all the pesto you can eat for free. Ditto salads - dents du lion is in season so you can pick your dandelion leaves for free from the hedgerows.

I have friends in Amsterdam if you need to be fed
i thought you were going to say, in case you were looking for a part time job...

That amount would get me through most of a week.
Unless i go out to play pool or such like...

Re: Is 320chf enough to live on?

Don't worry after I drew some cash from the ATM today, my bank statement showed CHF40 left. I must survive on it till Friday (payday). I think I can, so you should be able to live on this amount much longer just skip clubbing.
