Through research ive managed to calculate a rough sum of what our cost of living may be, im hoping ive over calculated and not under! As we are literally about to start the process (ielts next month!) im having doubting feelings that we wont survive on my income and it will be a huge factor in it all failing!
Ive posted before and had some good comments from people managing fine on a similar income to us however i also keep reading so many threads with people saying you need so much to live and its usually alot more than what il be earning!
As a nurse id be hoping for a salary of 65k using a calculator i get my take home pay as 3989pm
On top of this il have shift allowances, being on a pr visa wešll also get centrelink help. Anyone know howmuch for a family with my income and 2 children.
Due to childcare my husband wont work but he is hoping to get his security licence there and do some casual work on my days off but we wabt to budget without this as its not guaranteed.
So far my calculations are as follows, can you let me know which ones appear way off.
I understand as we will be renting we dont pay water or rates,is this correct?
Food-250pw by shopping around 1080pm
Home contents ins-33pm
Tv and internet-120pm no landline will use skype
Am i close enough? Any major things ive missed out? Obviously tjings like petrol,food etc can vary.
