Hi from NZ. After reading other peoples questions, it seems that what most of us newbies would like is a breakdown or rough idea what one would spend in approx one week for 1 person outside of rent and travel expenses. ie; 1 loaf of bread, 1 litr of milk, 1 kg of fruit and veges, cereal box, dinner out etc. This would be helpful if someone would kindly give a breakdown or example. I sure would be interested and at least be able to make some comparisons. Thank you very much to those that would take time to provide this.
