    I bring home about $2500 a month after taxes and everything, and my Boyfriend or Best Friend brings home $5000-6000 depending on overtime, and how many weeks are in that month (he’s not salaried and is paid weekly).

    We don’t live together, and each own our own homes. My mortgage is about $500 a month, condo fees are $122 and cover heat and water, power is $40, cable is $85, phone is $75, property insurance is $55, and vehicle payments are $390. So after all is said and done I have about half my income left for groceries, gas, and savings.

    Boyfriend’s mortgage is around $1500 a month, utilities total about $300, cable is $75, phone is $50. His truck is paid off, so I think that’s all he has for expenses. The utilities can vary a lot, depending on the time of year, that’s just an average. He also has a roommate at his house who pays $500 a month. So he has a lot more money to play with. Most of it goes towards his mortgage and retirement savings. The rest after groceries, and gas goes into a general savings fund, for wedding related stuff, or whatever.

    Gross is around $13k. Take home (after retirement, healthcare, etc) is about $9k. We are almost equal and my take home is $4200. He makes more than I do, but contributes more to retirement, so that’s around what it comes out to.

    Mortgage $1350

    Car payments $550

    Utilities $200

    My expenses that I pay separately:

    Student loans $550

    Horse and related expenses $1000

    This thread is making me hate working for a nonprofit.  I have a Master’s degree and make $33,000/year before taxes.  Someone please remind me that helping the world is more important than money?

    @TGold:  I definitely think it’s more important to feel good about what you do than to make a lot of money!  And hopefully eventually you can move into a spot where you can make a little more and do good for people right?   I work for a non-profit too but it really doesn’t feel like it.  It’s a huge company and most people think we are for profit.  Feels pretty corporate at times but my department gets to do some really great stuff in the community, especially with kids.  That keeps me hanging on ;).

    I think it’s around 11k after taxes. But we’re older (I’m 34, he’s 44).

    Money -it’s just never seems like it’s enough. We had to look up how much we take home net each month and we were both shocked (we have completely seperate finances by choice).  Apparently, together we make way more than we even thought but in no way, shape or form would I say that we are rich nor do we live rich but I guess we are in an unusually high income bracket. If you looked at our lives you would never guess it because we live way below our means by choice to meet our aggressive savings goals.  We are fortunate in that we have a significant amount of money saved but it still doesnt feel like enough frankly, I don’t know that it ever will. No matter how much you make it never seems like “enough”. I admire and think you are very wise to choose happiness and fulfillment over money.
