  Now Essential's Android phone will work on Verizon too Despite being a retail exclusive at Sprint, the Essential PH-1 has arrived as an unlocked device. However, as mobile fans are unfortunately familiar with, certification with one particular network is always tricky. Tonight Essential announced that its flagship phone is compatible with the Verizon network, just a day after it went on sale in Sprint stores, so owners can drop a SIM in and go on all of the major US carriers. According to Andy Rubin, devices may need to reboot first, but that's it.We're excited to share that Essential Phone is now compatible with the @Verizon network.

The rapidly rising cost of essentials like housing, energy and education is pushing households deeper into debt, according to the latest figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

If today's High Court challenge to the Federal Government's same-sex marriage postal survey is successful, it may not even go ahead at all. So who is arguing against it and why do they say the whole thing should be binned?The survey will be run by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), and will ask Australians "whether or not the law should be changed to allow same sex couples to marry".

The 2015-16 Household Expenditure Survey shows the average family spent about $1,425 a week — $190 more than six years earlier.

Household debt had also doubled since 2003-4, with the average family owing $169,000. Property debt accounted for nearly 90 per cent of this.

The largest weekly expense for families was housing — such as rents and mortgages — followed by food and then transport.

However, the amount spent on power and energy had jumped 26 per cent since 2009-10 — an increase of 11 per cent in real terms.

"Most of the money goes on rent. Food is a big one and school, and then the bills are huge," Mr Gagliardi said.

The family lives on $597 a week, less than half the average income.

"It comes to the point where it is ridiculous," Mr Gagliardi said.

According the latest ABS figures, the largest proportional increase of any spending category was on education — jumping 24 per cent in six years.

Ms Maron said money needed for school trips could blow their budget, with their eldest children needing iPads for class, and constant demands for special school days and trips.

"Things are always coming up at school that they can't participate in and that separates them from the rest," she explained.

30 years ago, food was our biggest expenditure

Going back further, in 1984 it was food and non-alcoholic drinks that most people spent their money on, and housing was the third-highest category, making up just 13 per cent of spending.

Why Olivia Munn actually lost money acting in 'Ocean's Eight'

  Why Olivia Munn actually lost money acting in 'Ocean's Eight' Actress Olivia Munn has a cameo in the upcoming all-female heist thriller "Ocean's Eight," but the brief role apparently cost her rather than made her money. Munn told Entertainment Weekly Radio that she had to pay up front for her expensive wardrobe for the scene she appeared in, which took place at the annual Met Gala in New York City -- and she received no reimbursement."It's a whole scene at the Met Ball and they're like, 'Do your own glam.' I got the dress, all that, and then you submit the bills for it because I'm part of your movie," she said."But the bills come right back to you," she continued.

The proportion spent on education has more than tripled over the past 32 years, while money spent on clothing and footwear has more than halved.

Across Australia, the Northern Territory and ACT spent the most on goods and services, despite Western Australian having the greatest rise in median weekly household income, from $1,111 to $1,782 over the past 10 years.

Tasmania saw the smallest rise in average weekly income, from $950 to $1,209, and had the highest number of low-income families.

Wealth inequality stays the same

The ABS said nearly 30 per cent of Australian households were over-burdened with debt, with mortgages the driving cause.

Not surprisingly, higher-income households were more likely to be swimming in debt, given their access to credit.

A quarter of the households in the top income bracket were over indebted, compared to one in six low-income families.

More people in Sydney amassed more mortgage debt than Melbourne, with Sydneysiders owing on average $269,000 more than their Melbourne counterparts.

However, the ABS said the gap between rich and poor remained stable.

"The wealthiest 20 per cent of households in Australia has remained stable since 2013-14," ABS chief economist Bruce Hockman said.

Yet figures showed inequality in net wealth was higher than income inequality.

However, the St Vincent De Pauls Society said over the past three years, more and more low-income families had come to them needing help.

"They are seeing mounting bills and have to make choices every week as to what they can pay and can't pay, and always have that sense of dread about the next bill," the charity's Victorian CEO Sue Cattermole said.

"So they may ask us for food but in fact it may be something else that is a stress for them."

While Mr Gagliardi struggles to make ends meet, he remains confident he can clear his mounting debt and get his family back on track.

"I have worked out a 10-years plan, just give me another five years," he said.
