    Rarely go out (3 young kids), non-smokers, hardly drink any alcohol.

    Plenty of "estimates" in there though e.g. monthly expenditure for car maint./insurance/tax would involve a lot of delving through records/receipts at home to do accurately. Ditto phone (landline is billed quarterly, wife's mobile is PAYG ... so no accurate record there). Etc.

    4.8%

    But many of the amounts are semi-estimates so I cant see the result as being very scientific or accurate.

    Although I don't pay for car repairs and insurance (company car) and I've halved my annual mileage over the last 12 months.
