I really really want to buy a house. I hate renting. I hate paying off a house for someone else to benefit from. I hate not being able to do what I want to do. And I hate that if I do ask for approval for anything it's just going to benefit them.
I keep coming back to our budget regularly just to see if there is anything I can do to save the deposit but I can't find anywhere I can cut back
I don't see it ever happening and that is depressing. Every time we do get a little bit saved something happens and we need to use it for something.
I live in hope that one day, some how we will get our own house.

I feel you! Dh has another 3 years at uni and I am a SAHM so its well out of reach for us at the moment but I hope in the future it will happen. We have recently committed to saving $50 fortnight.. for an interstate wedding next year, but hoping that we can continue and even increase this as time goes on. I manage our budget but I had to get dh on board so he knows it is serious and that means sacrificing our take away...
Can you start by saving even $10 a week? It doesnt sound like much but you have to start somewhere. Save any tax return / supps you get.

I think it's awesome you have that as a goal, to provide a permanent home for your family. I truly believe that if you always keep your goal in the back of your mind & are always thinking of ways you can achieve it, it will happen! I don't know where you live but if you're willing to start out small or move to a lower priced area it can be a very real dream.
Having said that, as a homeowner - financially it's very difficult. More so than renting. Rates, water, sewerage etc are all added expenses you have to find that you weren't if you were renting, not to mention maintenance. I'd love to make this place 'my own' a little more but all my money goes towards maintaining it at this stage. That's ok, i knew what I was getting into, but while you're renting try and enjoy the lesser responsibility. If something breaks it's not up to you to fix it!!!
I'm sure you'll achieve your dream one day

Oh yes I am not looking for a massive house I'd even go a 2 bedroom (but would prefer at least 3 with 3 kids) if it meant a start and something that is our own. I don't need 2 areas to sit.. That just means more places to clean. But I would love some yard though we don't have much now. One day, one day soon. I'm going to think positive about it. 👍😀

I really don't see what your problem is. All you have to do is get a well paid job and you can afford a million dollars for a house. It's as easy as that 😜
