I lived on $18.75 an hour and I lived on $2,000 a month,,, you just got to make adjustments to your life.
DH and I make $40/hour each,now I work PT though,and he works FT. We are comfortably middle class just outside a large city in the Midwest. SO far from kings and queens here.We have a mortgage,no car payments,no day care payments. It all depends where you live. I'm sure that $40/hour is nowhere near enough to live in say,NYC or LA.
Quoting AnonyMOUSE715:Wow I wish me and my fiance were making that each. Wed be like fuckn kings n queens
We are a family of 4 and live on $30/hr.
right now we're living on an average of $27 per hr. i'm a sahm and we have 1 kid so i think when he starts earning $36 an hr we'll be what i consider very well off lol.
Quoting davnrori: If we take our monthly pay and divide it by 160 (assuming 40hrs a week per month), my husband makes $56.67 an hour. So, no, I don't think we could make it on $40 an hour :-/

I think I could. It would be tight but doable.
