I see all these posts asking how much can you live on? So ok how much would be considered enough for the lot of you to live comfortably?

Well DH makes 57/hr now so we would have to go without some things unless we want to start using our savings but we wouldn't do that.

That would be way more than enough for us. We could live with just my SO working making $15/hr and me staying at home. And be comfortable and have all the stuff we have now. But, that's not going to happen unless he gets a commercial roofing job, so for now, we will both work.

We live just fine right now on $20 an hour. I'm in school so that's how much my DH makes.

We are a family of 6 living tightly off of $36 an hour. At $40 an hour we'd be comfortable.

Heck yes. We are a family of 5 living on $31 an hour. Around here, you are considered making 'good money' at anything over $20.

Between the two of us we make around $6000/month. I'm about to take on more work, and dh is getting a promotion so it'll be higher soon. I say we do fine, but can always use more.
