Our's is approx 30% of our combined income which is allot considering if we have to go onto one income in the future if we start thinking about kidlets.
Basically my wage is used for bills, groceries, and what ever is left over for my 'spending'.
His wage go's into the mortgage and what ever is left over from that to a savings account and his 'spending'.
He had a whinge a few weeks back about not having any 'spending' money, I soon gave him a firm reminder that we are lucky to have a roof over our heads and food in the cupboard let alone 'spending money'. He hasn't mentioned a word of it since! lol
We pay $400 a week off the mortgage and that is about $40 more than the minimum re-payment. We are on a fixed rate also which was the best thing we ever did!
Been in our little place 3 years and have done many improvements, and the value of our place has gone up $100,000.00 already and we have probably only spent $10,000 all up on the it all.
Lots of jobs half done, but getting more towards summer now can stuck into it all again!
