    Does anyone receive their ftb in a lump sum after the end of the financial year ?

    Dp and I are considering doing it because I need a new car and we dont want to get a loan.

    IF I get anything, it will go on bills, and probably the last of the baby stuff. If there is anything left over it will go into the saving account as the start of our house deposit.

    I'm so envious of you right now

    Mine will go on bills and paying off the remainder of our car loan.
    We get so many bills this time of year and they hit us all at once.

    Our car rego is due on the 25th of June so we always have to get the 1 year not the 6 months other wise it's due on Christmas day
    And that is just a royal pain in the ...

    Maybe after the car loan is paid off I can get a loan for my boobs and tummy tuck *day dreams* lol.

    Why spend on something extra with these supplements? Why not just leave the money in the bank and have it available when needed?
    well some people dont need to have it in the bank?

    Getting DH a tablet for his birthday and the rest will go into savings (but will ultimately be used towards DD's Christmas present - an adventure cubby house).

    My tax that I hopefully get back will go towards being able to afford DP having one or two days off work after bub arrives! Any extra will be straight to bills

    Sweetseven, For us we spend the supplement on any 'extras' we want for the household/us as individuals. The reason we do this is all other bills/savings are budgeted for and we choose to pay extra onto our mortgage with any left over $$. So at tax time we use that money/supplements (which we dont include in our budget) for some extras/luxuries. If we dont have something we need then it goes into our savings account (although once our children are at school and I am back at work all family tax money will be put into our childrens bank account including supplements).

    Hrm, probably a new wardrobe for DS as he's grown like a weed in the last month.
    Then anything else will go to paying off CC debt. I want to reduce the limit of my card but I can't do that until I've paid it down to that level.
