    price sticker shock But keep in mind the village store while it keeps stocked up is also dependent on the plane coming in to keep bringing supplies in Also the supplies will be basic I always have shopped at the local village stores a few items it creates good relations But planning ahead is the key too the other poster is right one can over pack and find they don t need some items But also know for example to you like to sleep warm or cold As in do you like a warm room and little blanket or other way around Their are times in the bush even in a well insulated cabin that no matter how warm it is its cold outside I like to sleep with a heavy comforter and also grew up with a bear skin rug on my bed That s the reality of the bush Also become friends with Amazon Prime especially if your remote They are a great way to order a lot of great things and also shipping presents to friends and family that you want to give them Also Costco on Diamond in Anchorage has a bush department a great one btw Mr Prime beef is fabu if your not a vegie I am not a vegie and I don t mind splurging on a few luxuries when out in the bush Also keep in mind you have to buy everything from dish soap to papertowls and everything in between like toilet paper Buying in bulk oh hey Costco is my friend especially Costco in Anchorage Anyway research and look at the different school districts Some of the school districts post information right on their websites tips on costs and websites on shopping tips Check the sites out and plug in random zipcodes when it comes to shipping Then after you faint from the sticker shock pick yourself up and decide that s the reality The teacher salary s that range between 40 000 and 60 000 starting reflect cost of living Read some of the remote sites carefully they charge a specific price to stay in their housing This is done out of convience to you and them but also some places have to do this Because in some places the land is owned by natives and because its the only place to live Also decide if you can withstand the realities of living in a entirely different culture where people speak other languages and have beliefs different then you do Can you stand to see a whale hunted for food and then watch the villagers celebrate prepare and honor the animal that is feeding them clothing some of them providing oil and other items Anyway good luck happy searching and preparing Living in Bush Alaska if that is part of the state you choose to teach in is like nothing else in this world Good luck and enjoy my beautiful and wonderful state We Alaskans are extremely friendly generous and loving people over all But no bias here Adrianna Posts 8 Joined Mon Dec 07 2015 3 29 am Top Re Saving money by Bushteachers Mon Dec 14 2015 9 51 pm amanda12345

How much can you save Between 10k to 35k a year Seriously your range is that wide Bushteachers Posts 95 Joined Fri May 08 2015 12 36 pm Top Re Saving money by marymatt718 Sun Dec 20 2015 12 24 pm It may also take you a few years to get to the point of being able to save I am a case in point I came from Houston which pays its teachers decently I made 43 000 by my second year of teaching in Texas When I came to my district in Alaska my salary only went up 5000 and my monthly rental remained the same about 900 though I didn t have the year round air conditioning bills anymore I was living singly in my apartment because my dogs are large enough that they are like living with two more people I maxed out most of my credit cards and took out a small personal loan to get to Alaska I had no savings left after paying for my certification program but I had no student loans left either I went home my first summer which cost me about 6000 round trip I drive because my dogs are too big to go on Alaska Airlines and spent another 2000 for shipping some items from Texas that I wanted my second year and for bush shopping in Anchorage so there went the credit cards again I stayed in my village in Alaska this past summer and my summer rent went to half the normal rate which is a benefit from my district and this year I will finish paying off the last credit card It will be next year my 4th year in Alaska before I will begin to see any accumulated savings That being said once everything is paid off I am looking at being able to save about 15 000 next year barring any unforseen emergencies So it can be done but there is no guarantee I will tell you that salaries tend to go up faster here within 5 years of my arrival in Alaska I will be in my 7th total year of teaching and will have a higher salary than my mentor teacher from my first year of teaching in TX received after 23 years of teaching in Texas marymatt718 Posts 75 Joined
