    No strider (I have a BJCS and P&T )
    No downlights in our own house. Our Rented house has 2.
    I don't own hugs, trakkies or thongs. I only wear gym gear to the gym. I rarely swear, my kids have generic names and we own two Asian cars that are mostly clean.

    But I regularly park on the lawn when visiting or at home plus I often call out to the neighbours over the fence.

    15% bogan ish.

    Default Spin off: How 'bogan' are you?

I think the logic on the coffee tables was similar.

    hub!
    Exactly. There was someone many moons ago on BH that knew an electrician who said that bogans always ask for down lights.

    I don't have a coffee table, down lights, have a strider and I don't wear Pandora - yep I'm putting it out there, I find Pandora bogan. I also say "Ing" on the end of words. So not bogan but....

    However, I often yell out the back door to my dog, toddler, I wear socks with birkies (my DH finds this bogan), occasionally smoke when I drink (but I only drink Pinot) and my DH has Tatts (not tribal). And I swear, like an effing sailor.

    So definite moments of being bogan but at this point in time they are intermittent. This can also change or fluctuate depending on my company.

    I'd say 20% bogan.

    I don't have a coffee table (anymore - it's ds' kitchen table now but even before that it was relegated to the spare room), no downlights, no strider, I never wear thongs or barefeet out, don't drink, over-educated, no uggs, have a Toyota, trackies are for bed or exercise only, hate parking on the nature strip or grass, no tattoos, don't smoke.

    I do tend to swear but only at home, try to avoid it in front of ds.

    I think I'm the antithesis of bogan.

    Default Spin off: How 'bogan' are you?

    Ok, let's do this.

    Billabong uggies (I think the fact they're billabong makes it worse!)
    Haviana thongs- mine even have a floral design on them.
    Own and wear trakkie daks often
    Pandora (I have two! Eeek!)
    Proud Holden/ Chev household (thanks df)
    We are a bit like the Kerrigans, in that we have 4 cars and are looking to get another one in 2016. This is all df though- he loves his cars.
    I swear a lot.
    No downlighting, no coffee tables, no prams, no tattoos. No parking cars on the lawn. No smoking.
    But I do let my kids free range and make their own decisions which I have no doubt a lot of other parents think is bogan, but my heart is in the right place regarding this. I've researched it to the nth degree.



    Um, and also- we have two large screen tv's. Although neither were bought with a baby bonus so don't think that counts?

    Ok here goes
    have a coffee table
    drink spirits from a can or beer from the bottle
    Own trackies
    Have several pairs of thongs
    Down lights, down lights as far as the eye can see. About to start building a house with even more down lights!
    Swear like a trooper - all the good words
    Drive an suv and my DH drives a ute, with a big aerial and driving lights.
    I read the Mamamia website
    I've never cooked with quinoa, acai or activated anything
    Former smoker
    Former addict of gel French tips

    And i think I'm done! That has to be good for at least 50%!

    I just wanted to add that playing down ones boganism, is a bit bogan. Due to the fact that bogans often don't know they're bogans. Most fully fledged bogans I've met/know, swear black and blue that they are not bogan.

    I have track suit pants (but only wear them when I'm doing a workout, or in bed on a cold night).

    I wear leggings as pants (but only if I'm wearing a dress or long top over them, so people can't see my underwear).

    My voice sounds like I'm bogan, but I'm definitely not.

    No down lights (we have the original pendant lights from 1920's)
    We have a maclaren umbrella stroller but mostly DS just walks.
    I drive a VW (diesel, before the scandal!)
    We never park on the lawn or nature strip.
    I do own thongs, but they're my outside shoes, I mostly wear sandals.
    I don't own uggs, but have knitted slipper boots.
    Don't smoke.
    Drink very occasionally, but only red wine (only out of a bottle! No casks here. Such a snob!)
    I regularly cook with quinoa, sugar free, almond flour, coconut products.
    Own trackies but they're only used as pj's.
    We do have a coffee table - DS uses it as his breakfast & lunch table.
    I do swear...more than I should.
    I do have a tattoo, it's a very small, simple one in a hidden spot.

    So I'd say I'm about 10% bogan....but reading this back I think I might be about 50% hipster! 😣😨

    Ahh then the fact that I openly admit that I'm 40% bogan brings down my bogan-ness? So maybe I'm only 30%?

    Entirely! 😄 Because bogans are always telling others they're not bogan.
