    Those of you with over $1000+ left over is that single or double income?

    Im surprised at what some people can live off! I think its amazing and sad all at the same time.

    An Chen, I hope life gets easier for you Im sorry you are having a crap time.

    Double. I find it hard to estimate though as some weeks DP could get $6,000 the next he could get zero. Really tough to estimate but he's doing ok.

    Single income, my FTB is about $49 a fortnight but I have just pushed it to claim at the end of the financial year. Hubby gets paid monthly so I just times his normal pay by 12 then divided it by 52, hope that was right!

    Same here, though not quite to that extent but DP can do a job that might be worth $3k one week. He is a subby though so his job is never *totally* stable kwim?

    I pay for bubs costs (formula, nappies, food, clothing etc), my mobile phone, my share of the rent and my private health insurance. I pay for my groceries.

    He pays his share of the rent, home phone bill, electricity bill, his mobile bill, car repayments, his groceries and petrol (I don't drive) and other bills that come up.

    He gets more in a week than I get in a fortnight so the 'system' we have going works well for us. I eat healthy and he eats junk so that's why we buy our own groceries rather than doing a halved/shared shop.
