    Well, we have 4 and survive on less!

    We have gone to a very low income this year - for a good reason. DH works his butt off, is up until 1am everynight and has work to do on weekends too.

    Hard work does not equal big bucks

    I've not been in Australia long enough to qualify for some benefits - so my income is zero and but I do, luckily, get tax A and B, so approximately $300 a fortnight. Obviously, I'm living off my savings until I go back to work!

    Aw thanks guys It hasn't been closed long, the previous guy had a bit of a marriage breakdown as far as I know and they closed the place, but it won't take long to get it up and running again. It's very exciting and a bit scary all at the same time!

    With DS's sickness benefits it's $27,000. Without, it's closer to $14,000.

    I'm really hoping the new govt don't take his benefits away, I've already had a visit! Told them where to go too.

    roohif...I was be over the forking moon for a start!

    I'd get DS a pair of shoes...and myself something to wear without holes in the bum...and I'd buy a house, so we always had somewhere to live.

    I often wonder about how my life would change if I no longer had money, in the same way that I imagine most people wonder about their lives if they were loaded.

    So hypothetically, if we were to trade places tomorrow, how do you think your life would change?
    Good question, and I think it deserves it's own thread.

    For me I don't know. I guess less stressful.

    I know that we are quite well off compared to most people. I consider my DH to be a high income earner.

    My life changed unbelievably going from a sole parent to a a high income bracket, so being in the millions it would change even more.

    I guess the main things would be, freedom. Freedom of choice when it came to vehicles, education, housing (areas and size etc).

    It would eliminate a lot of stressors, not worrying about paying the bills etc. Not worrying about if you can aford to buy undies because all of yours have holes in them.

    It would eliminate alot of worry about my children. I don't worry too much now, but when I was a sole parent I did worry about feeding her and clothing her, just the basics, like how we are going to buy new shoes etc.

    Oh yes and when I was a single mum I often went without a phone and had the power cut off a couple of times.
