    I have around $1100 a fortnight after rent, phone, Internet, payments on interest free items(fridge/out door setting), Childcare, electricity, gym membership, union fees, $50 into a separate savings.

    That's not including groceries or fuel though. I've just realise I have been wasting A LOT on eating out and drinking lately. Time to tighten the purse strings again!!

    My rent is very minimal and day care fees are low. I work PT and I've only just started getting about $90 a week in child support. You'd think I'd have saved more than I have. I thought about it tonight and just earlier this year I was struggling to afford groceries. But that's also because I had a $15,000 surgery I saved without getting a loan for. I'm in a very fortunate position ATM. But as I've learnt from the past it can change anytime.

    I haven't included rego, car insurance, etc. hmmm I might go draw up a new budget. I'd say I've probably got a lot less than I think I do. I've been very wasteful though lately (easily spending over $100/wk eating out or drinking). I feel a bit disappointed with myself because I really like making my money count and at one stage I had to. I feel a little irresponsible. Time for me to get things back in check.

    I have had a glass of red and accidentally misread the thread title as "once your balls are paid..."

    About $400 a week and we spend about $200 -$250 a week on groceries. The left overs go into savings and put away for big bills.
