That is why we won't live in Syd. We live in a big 4 bedroom house on over half an acre 5 mins from the main street paying around $500 a fortnight. Each to their own but I couldn't handle it.
as a side note, i would love a spin off thread too! That is some amazing budgeting would love to know some tips. Our only debt is our mortgage and it’s modest but i still feel like there is not much left to cut. You guys must have some good tricks!
Sydney is soooo expensive. We get by on $75k/year and are paying about half our income in rent. But at the moment moving isn't an option. When I've finished studying we would love to both move semi-rural or coastal, DP can move wherever in NSW with work and hopefully I could find teaching work somewhere out of Sydney.
Being close to family is really important to us though and the reason we haven't moved already.
I love it, but it's so expensive.
I love Adelaide and it's not too expensive
