I was living in Bristol 2016-2018 and now I am close by in somerset. With 33k salary at that time, I was struggling to save any money. I had a normal 2 bedroom house and I am not a big spender. I would say for Bristol the minimum salary for a family is 40k. Hope that helps some of you.

I'm being offered with a Project Manager job in Yeovil, Somerset, Bristol. I have a wife and a 6 year old child. What do you think about earning up to GBP 40,000/annum (before tax) as a the only household income so far? My primary concerns remain on if this could be enough to face not only regular domestic expenses but also my rent as well as the international primary school installments for my child. Any answer or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Thank you!
