We currently have been living off DHs income alone. I will be adding at least $1100/mo after taxes.
I truly do not understand why people are so hateful about this subject.
This is our expense list:
Car Payment - $175
Car Insurance - $235
Cell Phones - $150
Groceries - $250-300
Gas - $200-300
Water - $50
Garbage - $45
Totals up to $2225. DF did side work and paintings to make up.
We are not on assistance aside from the kids medical. DD will be on my insurance plan with me and DSS on DHs.
We will be putting at least $500 away a month for a second car. And our "official" wedding next summer :)
