I am moving to SA with my family ( spouse and 3 years old son).
My office would be located in Hyde Park area so I am planning to stay nearby ( Sandthon?).
I have a few questions regarding living expenses in SA. I know it depends upon your lifestyle but I am talking in general terms.
I did some calculation and came up with below mentioned numbers. Do these numbers look realistic or they are too optimistic or vice versa?
Gross : R50000
After Tax : R36000 ( Aprox)
House Rent ( 2 BHK full furnished in Sandthon area) : R12000
Car Expenses ( Initally I would rent it ) : R5000
Medical Insurance : R3000 ( Myself , Spouse and my son)
Pre-school + Day Care ( for my son , he is 3 years old) : R5000
Other Expenses ( Internet + 2 Mobile Phones + Satelite TV) :R2500
Fuel ( It depends upon usage) : R1000
Do you think I can save on any of the above mentioned figures somehow?
Any help would be highly appreciated.
