I can for the most part, we live very close to a shopping center which has Coles, Safeway, Kmart etc it is only a 2 minute walk, Hayley's school is 20 minutes (well, I could do it in 10, it's only because the kids dawdle), kids' swimming is close by too... I will have to wait til I get payed (18th July) anyway to have it fixed, so hopefully it doesn't cost too much,. I might even get my brother-in-law who used to be a mechanic to have a look at it.

Not a lot of saving for me at the moment, it's hard when I'm on holidays, so many lunch dates
However I did close Malakai's bank account and opened one with bank west, as he gets 10% interest there!
So I'm sort of saving just not for me lol

Hi everyone! I am also on saving mission ( to put more money to my mortgage offset account before i go for my mat leave in 6 weeks time). We are also trying to leave on 1 wage which is quite a challange given i make 43% of the household income and with 2 investment properties(which are still negative gearing) its not easy.

Cas- I think I have seen that as well. Ask at centrelink- I'm fairly certain that's where I saw the brochure.
Well, savings is.....travelling along ok. Wouldn't it be nice to just bypass all this and win the lottery?

Not alot of saving going on here. So many Birthdays, Events and Trips going on in the next 6 months I just don't think it's ever going to happen!
We have 10 Birthday's, Christmas, DP's Footy Trip to Melbourne Camping Trip to Stradbroke Island, I am meant to be going to Sydney end of August, Father's Day and I wanted to go to the Ekka this year, but I don't think we will be able to do it all! This happens every year, We have nothing on the first 6months of the year and then the last 6 months we get hit with everything

My savings are still going strong. I'm just waiting for tax money to hit my account then i will have exceeded for original savings goal.
I think that will be the end of my savings for the year though. I've just bought all of DS2's b'day presents, Will have to buy DS1's b'day presents and chirstmas presents as well. I've got big dental bills coming up for DS1 and myself, major service is due on my car soon then hopefully we will be moving so those savings will plumment somewhat.
BlueBoys if you want to go to Ekka but don't want to spend that much money have you considered going to the Mt. Gravatt show instead? It's just a mini Ekka... has show bags, rides, animals, etc.. Cost abouts $10 for adult entry.
