  • Car, rent, cell phones, home phone, Internet, Netflix, and I think that's it. I help with utilities when needed

  • Oh forgot car and motorcycle insurance

  • To many! And about $500 more than we earn, monthly. It's the American way.
    We have rent, and a mortgage payment, because my husband moved for work, but hasn't sold the older home in four years. We have electric bill, water, sewer, trash, and gas. We have the cellphone bill, U-verse TV and internet. We have property tax bill and home owners insurance. We have a car payment, car insurance. We have four credit card payments monthly. We have assumed one daughter's bills - she bought a sheep trailer, but when we moved, she sold her sheep. In a year and a half we will have paid off the trailer. We have three medical bills that went into collections, which we make monthly payments on. We have a YMCA membership, which we pay monthly. I think that's it - of course, that's not including groceries and living expenses, but you said "Bills" not expenses. Add those bills all up: twenty-three.

  • Rent, storage unit, car payment, child support, medical/dental/vision/life, car insurance, cell phones, cable/internet, we're paying on a couple medical/dental bills, Netflix, gym membership, 401K, 4 wheeler loan. I think that's it. There's the normal stuff like groceries and gas too.

    We're fortunate, we have enough to cover this and have extra $ each month.
