  • Zero kinda. We budget down to the penny so everything is 'spent' the moment we get it.

  • None--I'm lucky to make groceries and gas to the end of the month without a trip to the food pantry.

  • Depends on the month. My husband's work is very feast or famine, so I try to keep a 5 or 6 months of living expenses in the bank and I pay an extra $1,500 on the mortgage every month to try to get it paid off sooner. After that, it can be anything from a few hundred to several thousand. I wish it was more predictable.

  • what little is left goes to savings, unless it's a special occasion like a holiday, birthday or anniversary. we just don't have the money for luxuries right now.
