Could your family of five survive on $2,500 a month? How do you pay your rent every month on time (ours is $1100) still pay all your bills (which we have been doing) and still have extra ( this we don't have) How do you manage it?

We could if we cut a lot of stuff out.

Omg yes!! So comfortably indeed.  We make less than that, so definitely would be fine.

We'd be doing considerably better with $2500 a month. We make about half that right now.

No. I barely survived on that when I was single. LOL

No we couldn't. If we only made that much we would lose either our house or our newest car. We make double that a month and things are tight. They will be a lot less tight when kids are out of daycare, but now that I am pregnant again that won't be for 5 years!! Lol but we manage just fine on about 5k a month.
