Weekly/Monthly Budget

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm moving out with my family (wife plus 2 monsters), on a PR Visa, sometime June-August (subject to house sale), and have started trying to work out how much money we will need to live on a weekly/monthly basis.

 

Can people living in/around Melbourne provide feed back on the rough costs for the items listed below?

 

Rent (4 bed house) - currently allowing $400-450 per week (not looking to be in the heart of Melbourne, anywhere within a 45-60 minute commute of the CBD)

Electricity

Gas

Water

Internet/Phone/Mobiles

Food

Council Tax (or equivalent)

Satellite TV

Life Insurance

Medical Insurance

Anything else I've overlooked?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Ian

Rates are paid by the landlord if you are renting.

 

BTW, I also came from Taunton, although I left as soon as I was old enough!
