For a single person and one child?

Rent is about 1300 a month around here.

I will have to pay for our insurance, it’s not offered with this job. That will cost me about 1,000 a month

Other expenses

Car note is 400
Car insurance is 245
Lights are about 140


It’s only 1100 a week $20 an hour for 40 hours and then $30 an hour for 10 hours a week. Overtime is guaranteed every week.

Yes, $1,300.00 a week is a decent salary for a single person and one child.

A week? That’s $5200 a month. If you can’t make that work you’re doing something wrong.

You make quadruple the rent so I don't see why not.

For me it would be more than adequate.

But only you know your personal finances.
