    the BB is $398.85 for 13 fortnightly installments if you earn under $75k for the frist 6 months after the baby is born (combined incomeif you are partnerned)

    yeah i actually do wonder how many people actually did. (i heart tv)
    we did.


    In all fairness though - we could afford it without the baby bonus ... just happened to buy our TV at that time, so my DH put a little sign on it ....'To Daddy, with love from Katie"

    You just need to look around We were hunting for a while, and we got our bed from Super A Mart & our mattress from fortywinks, it was the last of its kind, as they had brought out a new chiropractic one...

    So it pays to look around. We would have paid about 3k full price for everything!

    I've been trying to put most of the fortnightly installments away in a savings account for when we move at end of lease.
    When dd was born and we got the bonus, my dp went and did a silly thing.. he went and got a plasma on rent to buy great timing! We had and still have everyone asking if we got it with the baby bonus, but we are still paying the bloody thing off! lol
