Re: Can I survive with this salary?

You can pay that much in rent, you'll have to live outside town. You should shop at Aldi/Denner and you can save up to 1000 every month that way. Also you might consider not having a car. I'm chronically lazy and love driving and I still haven't bought a car - public transport really is good. All in all, you can live well within your wage, probably for 3k per month depending on entertainment (very expensive).

OMGoodness, you've been spying on my life!


OP:
Yes, you can "easily" live the life you describe on the salary and benefits you anticipate. Add in the grocery shopping style Economisto suggests (Aldi and Denner) and yes, you should even be able to put some away as well.
