    Default Weekly Costs when working in Timaru-Any savings?

    Hi everyone,
    Just asking if one can make considerable savings when earning about $550 p/w after taxes.
    Basic lifestyle, don't have to spend on alcohol since I don't drink anyway. No car, no family, just one individual plus want to rent a flat coz I believe this should help me get to know the Kiwis much faster.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    You could always flat-share if you want to cut down your outgoings. That's certainly one way to meet kiwis fast . I've known families live on twice that salary but, if you only have yourself to look after, you should manage OK, especially if you're thrifty. I wouldn't like to say that you'd be able to save a heap of money though, but, if you're determined, you'll find a way.
