Oh that sucks about the ambulance. They can be really funny about types of circumstances they will cover. When your back on your feet look at separate ambo cover. We have PHI but I also pay $25 per quarter for ambo cover direct with Ambulance Victoria (family of 4) for extra piece of mind.

Do you have any old phones you can get some money for? Jewellery? Sorry I've been trying to think of things.

Does your husband have a HECS debt? Last year we were struggling and I rang them in regards to financial hardship and they can defer your repayments for a year and they can also refund you the compulsory repayments you made last year. It was a little bit f paper work, but it only took about half an hour to fill in, they were really helpful over the phone as well.

Hello and first of all good luck with everything....
I do not have much advice however these are things that I would do...
Cancel private health, only have ambulance cover...seriously, I do not see the difference in public or private.
Cook meals to last you 2 days so you only cook around 3 times a week.
Dominos has $5 pizza also
Check out your local children's centre, they offer occasional care, that way you can work more, maybe even a 2nd job
Sell items that are not needed, you would be surprised
With your bills....do easy pay, I think it's called, every fortnight or month put money into that
If things are close by, walk if you can, save the petrol in your car
Don't buy things if you can borrow them. (Books, DVDs, etc)
Before you buy ask yourself (do I need it? Know the difference between a need and "want")
All the very best of luck to you.
You have been given great advice from people.

If you have paid upfront for 12 months worth of insurance (or something similar), you could shop around for a better deal or the same deal elsewhere and sign up to the new service with a monthly payment option. Then cancel the original service and get a refund.
You won't necessarily save money in the long term but could help generate a few hundred dollars in the short term.

I get emails quite frequently inviting me to participate. a lot of times I don't qualify but it's worth it when you do.
just start with a Google search and ensure any company you register with is (well appears to be!) legit
