    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!

    I understand. We are at an empass atm where dh has almost finished his degree and there is no work here in his trade. So we may have to move to the city so he can work in his chosen field but paying sky high rent and probably never own. Or we stay and he never works in his field. We don't know which way to go. Personally I don't want to move. Not putting the city down at all but there is no commute, no rat race, no pollution. Our public schools are amazing, the community spirit is huge. I love the country <3 I know many hate it but I can't live in Sydney

    What about a mini city like Wollongong or Newcastle?

    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 don't know how I do it just seems normal to me.

    I know also have budget a few trips to Melbourne a year.

    You just make it work.
    How much is your mortgage if you don't mind me asking? My mind is pretty boggled at your budget. Are you in a small town/regional area?
