Minimum weekly expenses?
$1,600 pw!! That's putting aside money for annual bills too.
Rent, fuel, daycare, credit card, groceries, mortgage, rego, car insurances (car, life, health, house, landlords, contents) mobiles, electricity, Internet, rates and swimming lessons.

$1550 a week goes into our bills account. That doesn't include an extra $250 for food and fuel.
The bills account covers: rent, PHI, contents insurance, DH mobile, my mobile, internet, car rego, car insurance, car servicing, electricity, swimming lessons, education fund, childcare fees (though this will drop once the CCR/CCB is taken into consideration, but we haven't started childcare yet, I've just worked it into our budget). I feel like I've forgotten something else, but I can't think what it would be.
Obviously it's not the bare minimum - we could maybe cut down on some of these (eg cheaper phone/internet, use less electricity, find cheaper insurance).

im not really sure to be honest
the only money we own to anyone is our mortgage.
we dont have foxtel or private health cover . ds starts school in two weeks and is going public so the cost for school is minimal on a weekly basis .
we just have the regular things to pay like
food (i shop fortnightly )
car rego and insurance x2 (which we pay annually)
home phone /net
home building and content insurance
car servicing (this comes 2 times a year for 2 cars ....well df is a bit bad and only gets his once a year )
if i had to pull a figure of it divided out to weekly thruout the year is say minimum of $1000 a week for basic expenses

That's roughly our income, after school fees have been deducted from DH's salary (he works at the school
Our mortgage is only small, but we put more into it than the minimum - a total of $340 a week
We have rates and exorbitant house insurance
No car loan - we dipped into the redraw on our home loan to upgrade our car last year, but the baby bonus is paying that off
Life insurance is through super
No foxtel - there's 16 free channels with nothing to watch, why pay for more
We just buy what we need, and the occasional want, and not everything we want
We eat well, but mostly at home
We travel to Brisbane at least once a year
ETA:I think we are fairly well off

$1500 per week which includes mortgage, utility accounts, insurances, food.
We eat well, I don't buy cheap brand crap, we have 3 dogs and they are fed descent dog food, our boys eat lots of fruit and veggies and we are meat eaters so that's a huge part of the shopping bill.
