Cost of living break down for a "ghetto" girl lol

So here is my cost of living breakdown inspired by this post http://www.muscatmutterings.com/2010/07/cost-of-living-2010-update.html and this post http://www.muscatmutterings.com/2009/08/cost-of-living-in-muscat.html for my family back home. Yes, I am totally not ambitious C, if I was willing to work harder and bluff more in the interview, I understand I could have 1400 RO as my salary. And yes, my rent is AWESOME. And I know it, thank you C & Y.

WHAT ANY CANADIAN OR AMERICAN OR BRITISH GIRL CAN MAKE WITH NO EFFORT:
Pay: 500.00 OMR (roughly)
=
1,329.38 CAD


NOT WHAT JUST ANYONE CAN FIND UNLESS THEY WANT TO BE AS FAR OUT AS SEEB OR FURTHER BUT... I LUCKED OUT
RENT:160.00 OMR
=
425.432 CAD


POWER:23.00 OMR (for the month I didn't know how to shut the ac off and the water heater)
=
61.1606 CAD


WATER:11.00 OMR (I love long baths)
=
29.2507 CAD


PHONE: 20.00 OMR (I usually don't use this much but.... I am overestimating)
=
53.1831 CAD


FOOD: 80.00 OMR (also, I don't usually eat this much unless hosting or camping)---about 40 rials is enough for my food and amenities including makeup
=
212.748 CAD


DRIVER or gas and insurance: 50.00 OMR
=
132.968 CAD

156.00 Rials leftover = about 405.00 USD spending/savings
