    35% but we pay a bit extra so about 40%. It's a bit of a struggle on one income. If I was even working 2 days a week I think that would really lighten the load, but for now I am still a full time SAHM. Having said that we still have enough money to have about $200 a week "play" money, so we don't miss out on much. We have a very strict budget, if you follow it to the letter then you can't get caught out. I'm actually surprised that so many people only have a mortgage that is 15-20% of their total income. Almost all of my friends are paying at least 40% of their total income to their mortgage.

    About 45% at the moment. Low income and renting in Sydney are a bad combination!

    Yes, I reckon ANY income and renting in Sydney sux... I love the city so much, and so much more than suburbia... But I cringe at how much rent I'd be paying.
