    If I consider every regular outgoing cost over the course of the year abd break it down monthly, per month it totals an outgoing cost of around $6,000

    That's mortgages, loans, insurances, groceries, petrol, Internet, phone, donations, council rates, car rego, water bill, power, pay tv. It does not include savings or frivolous spending.

    We have an excel spreadsheet made up for ours (makes it easy to add or change things as they pop up).
    DH takes care of it, but roughly each week we spend:
    $150 mortgage
    $40 in an account for rates/insurance
    2 x $30 for our mobile phones ($60)
    $100 for electricity
    $23 Internet plus home phone bundle
    $80 credit card
    $100 loan
    $100 groceries (sometimes I go over lol).
    $10 in an account for DD

    We pay everything weekly, we often get ahead of bills that way and we can sometimes skip a payment if something comes up. We also put extra on our loan, we can redraw it from time to time so it's good to put it away so we won't touch it

    We spend about $4500 a month not including groceries, school related costs, daycare, cars etc. Groceries probably add about another $1k most months. Seems like so much, I'd never really thought about it before!

    Sorry, just looked up at other posts. That doesn't include groceries or homeloan. Just bills including daycare.

    Roughly $2,800 a month here. That includes rent/Internet/gas for 2 cars/money for gas and electricity and some for water/2 mobile contracts. It's a rough estimate and I've added a bit more just in case. It would include spending money too.

    We spend about $9000 a month. Seems excessive when I write it down but I feel it doesn't go to any lavish. We are paying a debt off for a failed business though.

    Wish I could live off $30k.

    Including rent I put aside $1650 a fortnight for bills, which covers rent, insurance, groceries, petrol, electricity etc as well as a bit for Xmas and things like car rego for the following year.
