    I hate paying the electricity bill. I also hate the council rates.........we pay a garbage fee to "maintain" our local tip which is almost impossible to access without a 4wd.
    I am another who thinks the green slip part of my rego should be cheaper......I've never used it in 20 years!

    Mine are all house related: body corporate fees, rates and mortgage interest. Especially interest.

    Petrol - it's so expensive

    Train fares - once again - if you don't buy a weekly or monthly ticket but only need to go somewhere once, the ticket costs are just astronomical.

    I couldn't really think of much - pre mooncup days it was tampons....such a waste and so expensive. Now getting my hair dyed because I wish I wasn't grey.

    Edit: someone else helped me, WATER RATES most definitely given I have 2 5000 gallon tanks and rarely use the town supply but still have to fork out the same huge amount as anyone who doesn't use tank water for being connected.

    Anything that resembles healthy/reasonable food for my children. I buy it, I cook it, I serve it, I put it in the bin.

    Toys, pens, etc. Only to be half used and left on the floor to be chewed by the dog.

    Just thought of another one. My damn insurance. I have comprehensive, so not cheap being my age anyway. Dropped from $93 to $67 a few months ago. But when I told them I lived here it went back up to $97!!

    I'm changing companies. The popular one here is about half who I'm with.

    Getting married.

    Should have married someone else. And I knew that, the day before the wedding. And I still didn't call it off.

    Divorce and property settlement were worth every cent though!

    Around how much is it for a divorce? No property to settle here though. Would just love to void that piece of paper

    I'm with LS - paying for daycare on public holidays bugs me so much!

    Also, toilet paper. Because we are a large household, it annoys me how much toilet paper we go through.
    Food in general. Why does it have to be so damn expensive?!
