Would you live off of...

If you were given $3000 a month tax free for the entire family, would you and your dh both stop working?

  • 3k would be just fine for us - more than enough to pay our bills. But I don't think both of us would stop working for good; it would be more fulfilling for one or both of us to find part-time jobs we enjoy, to get us out of the house and make us feel useful. It would be a nice feeling knowing we didn't "need" the money and that it could all go into savings or toward vacations.

  • uh yeah right. I couldn't pay all my bills on 3k. We would both continue to work and that would be 3k more for savings and college for the kids.

  • really i depends on where you live. we do not live in a big city. (if we lived in phoenix, pittsburgh, DC, etc.. we would not be able to make it) houses here are very reasonable. and right now we are living off of less than that...

  • i agree anon- i live in a real small town in ohio. we actually bring in about 3000 and we pay all our bills and still have some for fun and still have some going into the bank. We would do just fine.
