He makes $74,000, I make $30,000.
We live off of his salary now and bank mine. I have no debt. My car is paid off in full. All I have is auto insurance, which is $550 every 6 months. He has a $400 car payment and right now our rent is cheap. We can live very comfortably off of his salary alone. I take home about $550 a week. Daycare for a newborn is $350 per week on average here. I’m not working as a social worker for $200 a week, I’ll tell you that right now. 🙂 It’s all about living within your means. For us, we will never have a mortgage over $1000. Either we save for a larger house now, or buy a home that can fit our needs. Nothing more.
This is why I love Oklahoma. The cost of living is great 🙂
