Many Belgians who want to go live on teh country, move to France, Italy or Spain and open a B&B there. I don't know if this would work where you want to move to, and I don't know if you want to go live off the grid or not (would be hard to have a B&B then), but this could be a way to get an income.
If the moving company doesn't want to move your food and you really want to take it with you, rent a van or so, and move it all yourself. Start saving newspapers now, wrap every jar in newspaper, put it in a box and hope for the best.

Are you interested in a POV from abroad? Over here, the "rule of thumb", is not more than 33% of your net income, with a minimum of about 800 eur per month left over for other expenses.

Had I wanted, I could have borrowed more though, because I get a lot of extras from teh company (different insurances are paid by them, company car, company gas...
How do employers react to that? I can't really imagine calling my manager and saying "I'm staying home the next couple of days because of AF". Seeing how much I am billed to clients on a daily basis, this would mean a big loss for the company.

Shower/ bath tub with a naked grandparent in it, is not, imho. But thank you on "catching" me while expressing myself in a wrong way in my fourth language.
