How many kids

How old are your kids

How much is in your savings account?

Your kids college funds?

Retirement?

Own or Rent?

That's not so bad. Here that would get you a very modest home and car. Probably no vacations or extras for the kids. Everyone would live lean and wear hand me downs. Personally, I would want more for my family, but that's just me.

we don't have alot. a few extra, we have satellite, 2 smarts phones. Kid have game systems. our vehicles are old but paid off and my kids wear decent but not overly expensive clothes. we don't do vacations but we live in florida so a vacation would only be a day trip.
