Smurf you've got it wrong.
You're dead right chap, I don't know what came over me, I didn't calculate the tax properly at all.
Emc maybe lower you're expectation for saving 1000 to 750 and you'll live more comfortably here.
of the 1700 that phtoa has calculated look at things like phone bill/ 50-100zl per week if you use it a lot, my bill is anywhere from 250-350 per month.
Fuel for car, I pay around 100zl per week but it's diesel so it's a bit better...I get around 250-270km per week out of that. God knows what that is in miles.
Then you're food another 100-150 per week (yea I eat alot, my missus can live off 50zl for a week, don't know how she does it tbh)
So that leaves you with about 600zl for yourself + the $1000 for your savings target.
Not wonderful but at least your fuel, rent, food & phone would be paid
If you didn't have to save the $1000 you'd live like a king.
