our rent ($650) is about 1/5 of our take-home income (after taxes, retirement, and insurance)
but then we also have a mortgage payment ($550), but we rent out that house & break even on it when it's rented out.
we also have child care expenses ($400), car payment ($160), utilities (about $150-200), phone/internet/tv ($100), car insurance ($150), college loans (now $66 but will be $200 starting in jan)
so what are your housing and other expenses like?

Our house payment is $750.00 & is about 10% of our monthly income. Not really any other bills except utilities, gasoline, groceries & the like. Our son goes to preschool 3 days a week & that's $109.00 a month, which will end in September when he starts kindergarten. I will be homeschooling him, so that's a minor expense. Then our daughter will start preschool 3 days a week in September. Temporary expense is our oldest daughter's wedding which is in a couple weeks, but we've paid cash for everything so as not to accumulate any debt & it will all be paid in full by her wedding day.
