Before I could even begin my travels... I had to fork over some serious dough

I spent $1,239.00 on pre-trip expenses.  Here's where it all went:
1.  Plane Ticket Open Jaw (Seattle-Catania, Milan-Seattle)         $714
2.  Netbook  (for phone calls, internet, and reservations)           $270
3.  Skype Phone Service for 2.5 months estimate (I talk a lot)  ~$35
4.  Equipment (travel towel, money wallet, adapters, etc)           $250
5.  Preflight hotel in Seatac from Priceline                                     $60
6.  Travel Insurance for 2.5 months (partial, I've got medical)      $

My costs exclude passport and luggage costs (I used my existing rolly suitcase for comfort purposes).
To minimize equipment costs I shopped at and the local Dollartree fro certain travel items.
