Wondering what everyone lived off while saving for their first deposit? Was it easy to stick to for the long term? Moving in with the partner and her mum soon so will be living rent free for probably the next year to help boost the savings. Looking to save about $40k in that time which means living off $200/wk after food, travel, phone etc. Think that's pretty reasonable as my spending and money management is fairly good but of course could be reigned in a bit more. Already got my sights on my managers role at the new job and was told it's all mine once I've been there long enough to prove myself so that will help massively but in the meantime thinking of also working Sunday or start an online business for an extra $200/wk.
