Could you? My rent is $750, cable/internet/phone is $140, and gas, power, and water are about $200 combined. So no I wouldn't be able to pay all mine with $1000. I haven't even accounted for insurance.

What about you?

WHAT my rent for a 3 bedroom is OVER A GRAND ALONE! And I ain't livin the ritz girl, lemme tell you that. I'm proud of what we always have but its modest. We usually rent around 1200 sq ft 3 br and thats over a grand no utils included every place I have ever lived except Yelm, Wa 3 years ago it was 950. lol Oh and renters insurance is not in my rent either and most places make you have it. since i cant live there with out it throw it in my "rent money" allotment so even that place wasnt under a grand to rent technically

Yes.

My rent is $425. My utilities together are about $100. Between the cable/Internet and my phone that is another $200. I don't have a car, don't pay for insurance. With the food I buy, taxables, etc it would be more than enough.

Of course it helps that I work at a discount store and get most of my taxables there. With my discount it honestly makes some things completely free.

Say if I spent $40. My discount on that would be $8. So basically I just got 8 dollars worth of stuff for free!

Right now we could. We have had to have a major life change since DH was hurt while working out of town back in September. We havent had any income since. To pay what needs to be paid right now is right around 500 a month. But typically, no way.
