  • Approx. $2800 a month during the warm weather months and and approx. $3000 a month during the cold weather months (because of the increased gas and electric bills). That includes our mortgage (which is $1090), car payment, cell phone, satellite/Internet, gas bill, electric bill, water bill, trash bill, car insurance, groceries, gas for the car, dog food/guinea pig food & bedding, Sirius radio & monthly meds. I have everything budgeted out. If we spend it every single payday or every single month then it is a bill.

  • Why would you doubt that she contributes that much, :40 Anon? She obviously makes more than enough and feels so inclined as to give more than the 10% God askes for! I commend her! To answer the question, around $2200 a month after rent, utilities, credit card payments, childcare costs, groceries, etc.
