  • We spend around $1300 a month on bills (rent, electric, cable, insurance, water). Around $500 a month on groceries, detergents, cleaning supplies, etc. And now we spend around $125 in gas.

  • Zero on the mortgage; paid it off a few years ago. No car payments; always pay cash for those. No cc debt.

    About $700/month for utilities (includes phones, gas, electric, water, sewer, garbage, cable/internet, security system).

    About $1,000/month for groceries.

    About another $1,000-$2,000 on misc (real estate taxes, out-of-pocket medical expenses, gas, etc.)

    Everything else (about $4,000/month) goes straight into savings.
