    I haven't made changes to our bills to cut costs. If anything we cut additional expenses, not the bills.

    Monthly ( estimate as DH handles the bills but i have a fair idea how much it all costs):
    Utilities - $400 to $600 per quarter depending on season
    Groceries- $160 week
    Rates - $400 quarter? I think
    Mortgage - $1900 month
    Loan ( consolidated debts) - $800 month
    Plus theres petrol, phone, internet, foxtel, health insurance, savings, etc.
    We reduced out download limit on internet.
    Finished a phone contract and not signing up again.
    Use one car mainly, thats the cheapest on fuel.
    Changing health funds to save money.
    But everything else cant really be reduced.

    $8,000ish a month (we get paid monthly).

    That's food, rent, car loan, small personal loan, insurances for contents/car x 2/private health/income protection x 2, gas, electricity, 2 x mobiles, house phone, Internet, Austar, child care (about $2k a month alone), petrol and an employee share scheme (which isn't really a bill, but it's an outgoing)
