How Much Should I Budget For...

Recommended Posts

Guys I know this topic has been done to death with lots of general questions on the cost of living in Sydney but I have just received a job offer and am trying to plan where to live and how much I will need so I would love to get answers to this from people currently living in Sydney...

 

My Job pays $43,000 basic which, after using an Aussie tax calculator, equates to $709 per week after tax (apparently). I will also get commissins/bonuses and might do other part time work but lets just stick with that for now!

 

I want to live by the beach, the surf lifestyle is my primary motivation for moving so I will be living Cronulla, Coogee, Maroubra or Manly most likely and have been offered the above job in the CBD.

 

I am looking at shared accommodation and it varies from $170-350 + per week some with bills included.

 

My main question is how much should I budget for:

 

Food (to buy groceries/ eat out sometimes/ get lunch at work)

Travel

Entertainment

 

What else am I forgetting??

 

Thanks
