    Default How much do you spend on communication each month?

    By that I mean home phone, mobile, internet, letters, anything.

    I spend around $100/month on home phone, internet, mobile, and stamps/envelopes. Seems excessive. That's with a $49 plan with the mobile and around $48/month on home phone and internet, and stamps because we do still write letters to some people

    We spend a lot on communication, roughly $260, but DH owns his own computer business and works from home so that is included in the cost.
    - Internet $100
    - iPhones $59 x 2 (we have one each)
    - Phone line $18
    - VoIP $14.95
    - Stamps to send invoices $10

    We have a Telstra home bundle, so we get 50GB internet ADSL 2+ (we download a lot of music and movies - DH is home all day on the internet), budget home phone and Foxtel IQ (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE) for $188 per month.

    Plus we both have $39 cap mobiles...so $266 per month including Foxtel IQ. But Foxtel IQ is worth about $120 per month not on a bundle...

    ...So, I guess we spend about $150 per month if you include both mobiles, home phone and internet only.
