    I worked it out we are on about $700 a week, apparently. It doesn't feel like it sometimes though.

    That is after house payments. Which include rates and insurance on house.

    CL definately keep us afloat, this figure is including my PPP and FTB as well.

    I thought it was important to note that in my post because we have an amount taken out of hubs pay that goes straight into our house account. It includes the lot. Then he takes home what is left.

    After tax and rent we've got about $650 left. But after all the bills come out like daycare, electricity, health/car/home insurance, rates, phones - there's only a couple of hundred left for groceries and stuff.

    (as a family) between $900-$1100 after tax and the mortgage have been taken out (fluctuates depending on if hubby has worked his 4 extra hours on a sat or not)

    that pretty much all gets eaten up by bills, debt, savings, petrol and groceries though
