Is 30000R pre-tax monthly salary decent to live a comfortable life in Cape-town for a family of 2 adults & 2 children.
The life-style we prefer is normal considering following-
- rentals for 2BHK apartment (outside city centre)
- private school
- Groceries
- Petrol
- Utilities
- Part-time domestic help
- taxes
- outing on fortnightly basis with family.

Beyond what level of Salary, we could expect some savings.
