My calculations are $1000.00 per week should be enough to cover the essencials.

Andrea, officially it is $50 000, but it would be better if you can get a job that pays more, especially if you intend staying on the North Shore of Auckland

Auckland is expensive, and so is childcare.  I'd aim for around $70,000 or higher, if I were you.
lekker sweet as, y'all
