    Currently after taxes, DH makes $4,800 to $5,000 a month, and I bring in $4,000 to $4,400 a month. We’re definitely going to miss the cushion his income creates when he leaves his job to restart school fulltime. =*(

    BF and I don’t live together yet and we haven’t combined finances or anything. But we are wanting to move in together so our combined income is $2,262.

    But I’m hoping that one of us will get a raise over the next 6 months so we shall see.

    combined we bring in about 6k a month on average, and we both make almost the same. our income varies since I waitress and he works for his father, but in the winter has his own plowing buisness and in the summer does tree service work on the weekend. For example this month we are probably going to brink in closer to 8k since he had a big tree service job and I’ve been super busy at work.

    After taxes and pre-tax retirement contributions, we have $6,800 to live on (which is plenty – average expenses come to $5,900).  If we didn’t max out the pre-tax retirement accounts, we’d have $10,000 after taxes.

    For where we live, I think it’s just an ok salary. My goal is for us to be making at least $10k after tax per month so we can live a bit more comfortably.

    @LovesBeingAMrs:  We live in the Baltimore area. We bring home about $8400 a month collectively. FI is definitely underpaid for what he does but because of his immigration status, his company tries to justify the lower salary by saying they pay for his work visa and that’s part of his compensation package – umm no.

    Interesting thread. We bring home about $6.7k after taxes and our 401k contributions. However, I typically will receive a large bonus every year on December so that will increase our monthly income then but our spending always goes way up then as well due to the holidays 🙂

    We live pretty comfortably for our age (graduated college a year ago). We save a large amount so we can retire early and usually still have money left in our “fun budget” each month. We are also both about a year out from a promotion (fingers crossed).

    We bring home an average of $16K a month after taxes.  FI and I both work commissioned based jobs, so that can be lower or higher on a given month.  We also work in a city with a high cost of living.  Both of us are very established in our careers, and neither of us brought home close to this in our early twenties when we were first starting out in our fields.
