Quoting Dude, you Fugly!:" Subject line basically says it all. How much do you and or SO bring home monthly? What do you/him do? ... [snip!] ... basically go do whatever we want? I know this is a personal question, but just curious what's "comfortable living" to others. "
My needs and wants are very low. I spend all my extra cash on my daughter. I bring home $1000 a month. He just got a job and will get his first paycheck tomorrow, he will bring home the same as me. We have the same type of job just work for different companies now. However Child Support will take $400 a month out of his check. I pay $325 for rent, $45 for electric, $40 for gas, and $68 for water/sewage/trash. He covers the internet, I refused to pay for internet because I can live without it. We both have jobs that allow us to get tips but I don't relieve on them. I can usually bring in anywhere from $100 to $500 extra a month according to tips. With his new job he has the same possibilities for tips.
We usually go out on date nights once a week., we are going to Applebee's tomorrow. We like to play Bingo on Saturdays ($40 at least), however lately we have scaled back on going out to get things ready for our daughter. To me my life is comfortable, I have what I want for the most part.
