  • Even on the internet I think people are going to be evasive about telling you their finances. My DH and I both work. Our needs are met with some luxuries added in. We do however, live in an economically depressed area. Older homes, poor people. Our house will be paid off in 5 yrs and the payment is only 360 a month. Our house was built in 1903 and our lot is small and our neighbors...meh some good, mostly annoying. But, it is cheap to live there and then we can afford the nice things we have such as newer cars, trampoline, pool, smart phones etc. We have 6 kids one of whom is out on his own. We are not rich by any stretch financially, but we are rich in other ways. We are healthy, have nice things and I can do things I enjoy such as gardening etc. I make great money in the spring and summer and fall. My job is rather seasonal, and DH works outside, but makes decent money all year round. We are thankful to have work.

  • My husband makes $1600-$1900 every 2 weeks take home which is about $3200-$3800 a month. We have approx. $2050 going out for bills (including our $680 a month house payment which includes mortgage, property taxes and home owners insurance) in the cold weather months when the gas and electric bills are higher and approx. $1800 in the warmer weather months when they are lower. There's just 2 of us so we do pretty well.
