Yes I am trying to make our income more. But I am thankful we can actually live on this income. I was worried we wouldn't be able to after dh got sick.

Well if you can survive off of that than good for you I guess. I don't know what the cost of living is up there in Canada but here in the US living off of that sort of income would be darn near impossible.

We lived on that kind of income without any help. It was rough, but we made it.

Millions of Americans live off of that income every year. Sadly, I know from first hand experience.

I know. I live in Kansas, but with the oil boom housing here is crazy expensive! It's not an area you think if when you think about high cost of living.

Last year we lived in a tiny tiny 1 BR. 2400 a month.

Housing prices vary greatly.
