We have found that the cost of living is an important factor to take into account and before we came to Adelaide I always looked for those posts mentioning about people's cost of living here in Adelaide. First impressions I would say Adelaide is only slightly more expensive than where we living in Newcastle upon Tyne and of course some things are slightly cheaper. Right just read this next bit of this message! We have only shipped Washing Machine, Dryer, Golf Clubs and 2 TV's the rest is Clothes, Pictures, Photos, Culterly, Pots & Pans. Thats all. So of course we need to purchase some essential furniture, for instance Beds, Dining Room Table and Lounge Suit. We had decided on three cheapest places. 1. AMart 2. Fantastic Furntire and, 3. IKEA. After visiting all three we decided to go with AMart at Gepps Cross not the Anzac Highway one. AMart sold furniture packages. So we purchased the following: 3 Queen Size Beds 3 Queen Size Mattresses 6 Bedside Cabinets 7 Piece Dining Room Set (6 chairs & 1 table) 2 3-Seater Bed Settee's 2 ETU's (TV Unit) 2 Coffee Tables 2 Lamp Tables For the price of $1,664.00 = £963.00 approximately. The only problem is that we move into our new rental on the 10th March and this lot of furniture is not going to be delivered until the end of March. So if anyone is going to purchase furniture on arrival do it quickly on arrival as it takes ages for it to be delivered (Delivery cost us $55). For all readers who are currently residing in Adelaide, please can anyone help us out with the following. We need 5 blow-up beds only 4 if one is a double from the 10th March till the end of March till our beds turn up. Can anyone help us out with this problem. I absolutely love this place and only yesterday I mentioned I am going home now, meaning my home here in Adelaide.
Guest posted a topic in Visa's and Migrationhi me and my family are starting to think about migrating to australia but don't know where to start. i am currently studying in my third year at university to be a primary school teacher and my wife is a office manager. i am 39 year old, 40 this year and have two children under the age of 18. i have looked at alot of websites on this subject but find it all too confusing. i have used one of those points calculators and qualify with 120 points (i marked the question as yes i have a skilled occupation, but i wont untill next year) so i think i am eligable to apply for a visa but don't know when to. can i apply now as i am still at university and don't yet have my skilled occupation (but i will in june 2010) and how long in advance should i? i have also seen on a few websites (even the au government) that the length of work experience in your chosen field differs, on one site it said 3 out of 4 years and on another 12 out of 24 months, can someone tell me which is right and give me any advice on the matter? also does anyone know about total costs? all comments are welcome on even just one of the questions i have asked (: thanks
