veikkopl 2 | 19 8 Jan 2016 #1My net salary in Gdańsk is 4950PLN and while I haven't got an apartment yet I will be able to find one for maximum of 2000PLN including everything. Therefore, I'm certain I can have a normal life with the remaining about 3000PLN.Still, you see it everywhere on this site that it's not possible to live like a local ie. cheaper. How so? What do I need to do to live like a local? Why couldn't it be learned and what's the downside of learning that? What exactly am I doing wrong if I get my groceries from Biedronka like all the Poles?
