  • If you don't include groceries...then probably between $400 and $500 a month. But then I have to buy groceries.

  • Well, $0.00. Sometimes $50.00. Its only this way because I am living off of unemployment, and obtaining a position is very difficult. No one is hiring. I have applied at Michael's, KMart, JoAnn's, and another store. I am hoping they will hire for the christmas season. Rumor is that they may or may not this year.

  • Usually nothing is left. Actually, most months we are lucky to make the bills. Seriously. I hate it, but it's true.
    Mortgage: 1,200
    Electric: 160
    Water: 80
    Loan 1: 152
    Loan 2: 110
    Loan 3: 70
    Gas for car: 200
    Groceries: 300
    Household Items/Diapers: 80
    Cell phone: 170
    Cable: 130
    Yeah i know. We have a lot of loans. One is a car loan. And the other 2 are loans that we should have never taken but were stupid and not thinking of the future. Just the fact we needed quick cash.

  • After all the bills and before groceries we usually have about $2200 left over. Starting next month that will increase to about $4200, then in November I get a raise so it will go up again to about $4600.

  • I am usually in the negative. I am working parttime and not making enough money. Thank god my parents are helping me out until I finish school and or find a fulltime job. Jobs are scarce so I will take what I can get. Actually, my hourly wage is decent if I could get fulltime hours I would be good.
