Rent 1,700 kroner.
Council tax is sorted automatically through the normal tax system (for Varde kommune it is currently 25.1% of income a figure that hasn't changed since 2009, church tax is 0.96%).
Water and heating is about 700 kroner.
Electricity about 600 kroner.
Mobile 200 kroner.
Internet and telly + streaming packages currently about 2,500 kroner.
Insurance 150 kroner.
Daily newspaper 650 kroner.
Magazines about 300 kroner.
Food I don't know but probably around 5,000 kroner including the odd takeaway.
Pipey baccy and weed probably 1,200 kroner.
Allotment before any new spends 200 kroner.
Meds about 300 kroner.

No wifey or hubby, no kids, no car, no pets, no telly licence as that has been scrapped here and will be paid through the normal taxes from January. Just me happily single and doing what I want when I want. Too set in my ways to change now which is a good thing as I like the way things are.
