    It really varies for us depending on the fortnight, but speaking strictly averages, after ALL bills, there is about $1,600 left over per fortnight to spend on groceries, entertainment and savings.

    But, as I said, sometimes it's more than that, sometimes less.

    After food and everything I generally have nothing left. I budget my food shop on what's left after my bills because food is more important then entertainment. Some weeks I have 20 dollars left and use it to go out for a coffee with friends. I need play money

    Whatever remains in the bank. I withdraw $600 per fortnight for food and fortnightly spendings such as going out for coffee, lunch, school costs that may arise etc and make it last. If we decide to go away for the weekend to the nearest town which is 2 hours away where we always spend big we draw on our savings.

    Just over $4000 a fortnight. Which seems obscene to me. For 15 years of my life I had about $300-$400 a fortnight left over for groceries and entertainment, and less than that once I got divorced and was paying the mortgage on my own. My DH and I both work and we make a sacrifice by him working away - but still, I consider us to be very very lucky.

    If I stick to my very well thought out budget after all expenses which includes rent, food, child support, food, utilities, insurances, phi, foxtel we should have approx $1100 a fortnight left.

    Usually we have 0. This thread has probably just given me a kick up the a $$ coz thats terrible

    At the moment I have $0 left after bills. It's bloody depressing. Dh lost his job a few months back and is only working casual at the moment.
