The key is definitely budgeting, and making sure you can afford the main things.
Some things are cheaper here, and if you look at the overall cost of living (especially outside Auckland) it's very reasonable. I for one would never look back - we have a much better lifestyle, maybe not so materialistic as in Uk where we were self employed and had great tax breaks and could afford more 'stuff' - but this is the happiest we've been in a long time, as we now have time to do all the things we just procrastinated about before.
So plan well, and you should be fine. Good luck
Great post. Whereabouts in NZ are you? Ok, I've read further down now and have found out!

Soulflour - you rock! Carmen x

Talking Re: Anyone great with living on a budget?

Got there in the end! another good site. in dev so will keep checking!

I am just trying to soak up as much info as I can, to bombard hubby with!! He is coming round to my way of thinking, but he needs 3 years experience in his job, so we have to hang around for another 18 months!!

But i'm about 90% that its a go-er!!!

This thread is great too, because the money thing was something we worried a bit about, so i'm glad its not all doom & gloom!!!!!
