Thanks for sharing the scripts! Makes the process much simpler. I've been thinking about how developers can figure out what the budget amount should be for larger projects that are regularly changing/scaling, someone from the community suggested github.com/infracost/infracost/iss... as way to setup a budget based on an initial cost estimates. Sharing this here in case you/others have feedback.

Thanks for sharing!
Handling the usage aspect vs the price aspect is certainly a challenge, especially with not all pricing dimensions being attributable to resources directly (e.g. data transfer costs). I admire the effort with InfraCost, that is something filling a gap in what is provided by the cloud providers (in this case AWS).
The daily budget option from AWS may be a way to perform some measurements to assist with longer-term predictions.
