  • -200 or so. No savings :( Something always does not get paid or we eat oodles of noodles for a week. DH works two jobs and we still can't make ends meet. My daughter is "special" and somebody needs to be home all the time for her. Daycares won't take her and she is always getting in trouble at school.

  • We have 3 in our family, soon to be 4. After pay checks, we can save about 3-500 a month depending on if we stay on budget. We also save our tax refund for emergencies and as a safety net.

  • Family of 4 here; hubby works F/T and I've been a SAHM for 12 years now. We have about $3,000-$,5000 extra every month (we paid off our mortgage early, don't have any car payments, no debt to speak of, kids college accounts and retirement funded, etc.).
