    I can't believe there is still a first home owners grant! For some reason I thought it was gone!

    We have just brought our 1st home, we have 2 lil girls, saving for our deposit was tuff, we were able to save about 3k in about 6 month while renting, but it was just not going up! So we made a big decision to move in with my parents, we had 4 adults and 2 kids, 2 dogs living under small 3bed house! But we saved total of 7k in 4 months! My tip would be if you can stay with family for a lil while helps!!

    we looked at what we wanted, and worked out the cost per week
    - $600/week mortgage
    our rent was $200/week (share housing) so we put the extra $400 a week direct debit to a high interest account. gave us an idea of if we could afford the mortgage.
    we wrote a strict budget, and treated savings as a bill, so we'd go without a want, to pay the 'bill'
