作者: auyatyat    時間: 2010-11-10 20:14     標題: 家庭開支

頭先睇o左"grocery talk",某個三人家庭一個月開支$1700,真係好佩服

我粗略計o下自己一個月o既開支
電話$80
車保險$200
工作保險+會費$250
入油$300
電話費$80
internet$30
比老豆$700
平均學費(  >_<  因為仲o係度考緊另一個牌) $200
飲食 $300 ( o係屋企食早餐同pack lunch,但係有時出去做o野無得帶要被迫o係街食, 夜晚一半o係屋企,一半出街食)
gym/tennis 羽毛球book 場 $40
其他 $200 (藥,日用品....given that 我好少買衫亦都唔係好買名牌手袋化妝品之類...)
兔糧/草 $10
因為要讀書o既關係,我無乜娛樂,最多都係買o下$10 三隻dvd...
係咁易計o下都接近$2400

我好多同學都話儲唔到錢買屋/結婚..或者唔敢生仔,驚自己搞唔掂...但係以前隔離屋果2公婆都係做min pay o既工,佢o地一樣儲到錢買屋,迫埋6個人o係樓上,租o左個basement出去,人o地一樣生活到...

入油,車保險,工作保險,會費,讀CPD,電話/internet費 <--- 唔交是但一樣都唔洗開工
又唔可以唔比老豆
食o野$300,其實係大約$10 一日
$200 日常生活,屋企用o既o野,食藥睇醫生睇牙醫 其實都唔過份
娛樂只係做運動,養o下兔仔同買幾隻dvd...

by the way,幾年前o岩o岩u grad 出o黎做o野,入行training得$9.75/hr,無車,未洗買工作保險,未洗交會費,供自己讀master (total ca$15,000),果陣自己一個人o係加拿大,係咬住牙關過.依家$2400 其實係人工o既一部份,淨返果d 儲o下儲o下儲o左個首期可以買屋,但係一直睇唔o岩...一路睇d 屋又一路貴...

$300/month on gas is reasonable la..  ~ $3k and 25,000km/ yr is average for Canadian ..  

But I guess you should add the "running cost" on your car as expense, no matter lease payment or depreciation or servicing cost.

$300 a month to eat/drink .. that is good! You must cook a lots yourself .. good job! ^_^ Probably that $700 you pay to your parents, include eating home!

As other LYK said, once you have your own house, your expense will jump up a lots!!  Mortgage/untility/Air Cond/heat (opps .. you guys don't really need to pay heat wor) will cost you $3-4k/month extra......
However, by the time being, your husband will share the expense ..

Once you have kids ...  then your expense will run to the roof!!

I don't have any financing for my car, so I don't have any monthly payment.
You are right, if I look at the tax stuff for last year, my accountant wrote off $8000 for my auto expenses (including depreciation, gas, repairs...)
so, it's almost $700 for the car including gas, insurance, parking, and repairs

$700 for my dad to pay for property tax and utilities, sometimes he buys some fruits or he cook, mum does not live here mostly, she stays HK

$300 for food is $10 per day, breakfast = oat, bread, cereal, etc, lunch = usually salad, fruit, sandwiches or pasta if I pack lunch, if I don't say at office, then something less than $10 for lunch, dinner = cook at home, or food court, Pho, something under $10 again

almost $3000/month expenses already (adding those auto expenses!) + mortgage $2000 (just about $300,000 loans + property tax + maintenance) + $1000 kids (?)
then I will have some "left over" monthly, but it will take very long time for rental house downpayment....

that's why I don't want to get married or think about kids at all
I rather finish all my designation classes, have better income and stable life
作者: Catpiano    時間: 2010-11-11 13:52

Yeah .. even your house is paid off, still $700/month on tax, utility, etc ....  sigh ..

I know you want to be kind to your family (dad) and want to show some care. But honestly if they're not really depending on you, maybe you can save your $700. Tell your family that you just want to save up more money in a reasonably shorter term, so as to plan for your own wedding or future. :b

睇過一個香港電視節目,講d 人點儲錢買屋同結婚
有d 就好辛苦儲o左廿十萬,結婚果陣豪哂,跟住話要還錢比銀行之類
永遠唔會儲到首期,跟住就話政府唔幫佢o地上車

我覺得,大把人比佢o地有需要,例如真係訓街或者住籠屋果d
要幫o既話未輪到佢o地

有d 朋友結婚,只係請親戚一齊食餐飯,低調搞,其實唔洗用好多錢
但係節目果2位,影o左唔知幾多攝結婚相...

exactly
just treat $700 as rent

I guess your expenses are typical for someone in North America, but if you really want to save, you got a long way to go.  If you can save 70% of your after-tax income, that's what I call savings.

to achieve 70%, you have two options

1) increase your top line - income to a level where you can save 70%
2) cut your expenses

the choice is yours

I consider myself quite typical, except that not everyone is paying same amount or percentage to parents...

But quite sad, if a typical person, say $14/hr (some stats said it's BC general workers' average) or about $2350/month. how much is the after tax income? $1800? after paying rent/mortgage, utilities, auto expenses (minimal gas saving old car, max ICBC discount, not too much maintenance), food, there is barely any saving...

people who are underweight don't like eating and they just keep losing weight

Depends on which "stage" in your life you feel more comfortable. At the stage of you're still having lots of expenses for studying plus daily life, or finished all the studying and with more stable income later on? Since all your listed expenses are "must have" and cannot be cut down, then your saving will be limited at the current stage la. There is no perfection, either you have to sacrifice something to achieve something.

Dual income and no kids is the way to go for saving.  Now go find a rich spouse!

Or:

Jog on the street instead of going to the gym/tennis/etc
Don't buy DVD, watch online.
Cut all dinner out at night.
$200 for 藥 & 日用品 seems a bit steep.  Is the medication really neccessary?

If you do all these, you could save another $300.

typically you grow when you

2) live in a new environment and adapts successfully

by keeping your kids at home and paying for their tuition, i am not saying they will definitely turn out to be losers, but there's a higher chance that they will.

其實一開始只係覺得人o地一家三口$1700 好節儉
我又唔洗做到好似佢咁,因為我o既情況同人o地唔同,車同埋好多utilities 係唔可以避免

I wish I can go out without a car, but it is simply impossible.
I go to many different places everyday and usually I carry a
lot of bulky stuffs(more than the trunk of a mid size car can hold).
I pay for gas and parking too. The only above mention expenses I can save would be grocery,
and, believe it or not, liqueurs.

What I can say is
I can manage finance for business, I used to do it for living.
But in personal life, my wife controls the household economy,
I only get allowance.
