    We get $100 each. But it usually gets mixed up with/spent on petrol, food and wine/beer & eating out etc.

    $200 is about 8% of our weekly income.

    We have $150 each per week to spend on whatever we want (petrol not included). But after reading this I think I might cut it back!

    I don't really have an allowance either. i control the money and hubby never usually wants to spend any. i spend a bit on the girls and stuff but i would have no idea how much each week sometimes it might be $200 one week and the next week might be $20

    I'm not sure what ours is! We are budget nerds though. We've had a very detailed bill budget since we were 21. It covers all known bills like house repayments, travel expenses, vet bills, my medications, mobile phone costs, Uni textbooks, tyres, even a christmas gift budget.

    After that we have $500 dollars a week to spend on groceries, entertainment and personal items.

    I also have a cash stash. I ferret away left over money from our weekly living allowance, or from the shrapnel bin. At the moment I have about $900!
    I'm a money hoarding wh0re! But generally I'll spend this money on luxury items we might want..... like lego!
