Hi everyone

We are thinking about the big move to NZ. But our main concern is our financial living. How big wil our drop be when we move?  We dont mind the stepping down on our standerd of luving as long as we know that we can get up to  our current( upper middelclass) standard of living in the future.

My Husband is an Internal Auditor and Im a pre primary teacher.

Any advice on this?

Hey Vicky, it will vary quite a bit based on were are going to live. Auckland is expensive, but you can get by with good budgeting principles. With two salaries coming in it should be easier. It also depends on your situation. Day care is really expensive if you have young children, but schooling is not if your kids are school aged. In my opinion and experience, you dont need more money here to have a better quality of life, depends on whats important to you.
