How much $$ does your family make per month?

Do you ever have problems making mortgage and bill payments on time?


I am a SAHM and my husband makes $6,500.00/month. We have about $1,000.00 left over after paying mortgage, bills, groceries, etc.

I just wanted to see how much the recession has affected your family thus far.

(you can post anon. I know it's a really personal question)

  • we make about 4000.00 a month. but don't really have debt or a lot of bills so we have a comfortable amount to spend every month. its all about living within your means i guess.

  • SAH-homeschooling-mom of 2. (They are 6 and 7).

    DH paychecks equal to be $2,400 per month. All our bills get paid--on time!!!
    After bills we have $100-150 per week for food, clothing, toiletries, going out, b-day presents, gas in the cars, car maintenance, movies, activities, sports, etc.

    Even though my husband pay has GONE UP over the YEARS....we still only have $100-150 a week for "living expenses" Living expenses being anything that is NOT a bill!!! We've been living on $100-150 per week for the last 7 years! It has gotten harder, but it still can be done!

    After the "living expenses": groceries, gas for the cars, going places, buying things, etc : We have $0-40.

  • Husband makes 2400 a month. after all bills are paid we have between 300-400 left over. all that goes toward food, gas, and household needs. No room to spare for the things we want.
