Go to this website - it does your calculations for you, so you know what your take home salary will be weekly, biweekly and monthly

Thanks for sharing. Definately makes it easier to work out what you have to budget with.

A definite 'different strokes for different folks' we as a family, find it so hard to stick to a budget, even though we HAVE to,
as hubby does not earn a fantastic wage and is on lower wage... for example we go through 2 Lt of milk a day, 2 loaves
of bread a day, 2/3 Lt juice a day.....and the list goes on.....BUT, we score on our rent, as only $300 a week, and we know
of some families paying $500/600 a week for rent.... :faint: I personally know of a SA family who did the whole 'rent to buy'
and is paying $600 a week here in Tauranga.....what?? So it balances out I suppose?? So where we can spend $300  a week
for food, they can only spend $200.......really depends on your situation and rent can be a killer :-\

I have found 493 ways to make a meal out of mince..... :2funny:
