Hi there guys I have been asking around on forums on facebook about how much would a family need to live comfortably in Auckland and most people tend to think it would need about NZD1200 per week up to NZD1500

Does that sound about right?
My wife has gotten a job offer in Milford as a hairdresser and her take home pay after tax would be NZD 600 , I am still to find work as we need to get the work visa sorted out first before I will have the necessary paperwork to apply.

I work at the airlines as Customer Service Supervisor/duty manager.(British airways/Comair)
Not sure what the salaries would be for airline staff on New Zealand's side yet.
Can anyone give me some insight?
