Following - so interesting to read. We will eventually be going down to 1 income so reading about everyone else's expenses and budgeting ideas is a huge help.
Gosh it must be budget take away I'm in Sydney. We only really get Thai takeaway but it is always at least $50 for 5 people and that is with my 3 children sharing 2 dishes.
Normally our order is
2 x chicken fried rice
1 x pad suki or similar
1 x chicken garlic and pepper or similar
1 x steamed rice
1 x spring rolls or money bags
I buy coffee and lunch daily at work and a quick calculation I probably spend about $80 on just me 😁! I'm sure my purse and waistline would appreciate me being more organised. I'll make a conscious effort thanks to this thread to be more wise in May and see how I go. Thanks!
@witherwings I agree, our indulgences are a nice car (although we only have one, which we share), nice food & wine (although cut back on that a fair bit since bub) and as much travel as budget/time allows. I don't spend much on clothes/shoes/makeup either. I'm pretty partial to a nice handbag though 😜
