Ok so trying to work out if we can afford to move/have another child etc. On my spreadsheet I have:
Energy bills
Council Tax
Fuel for cars
Food for us
Mobile phones
BT phone
Car ins/tax
TV licence

What could I have missed off? With only those on there, we should have more money spare than we do...!!!

Is your water included in your energy bills?

Any magazine subscriptions?
