To get by on bare minimums, we'd need about $3500/month. That covers mortgage, utilities, food, diapers, etc.. We have no debt other than our mortgage so as long as we can pay our mortgage and utilities, we're good.

I would LOVE to be out of debt but we financed our business a few years ago and thats where most of our monthly expenses go unfortunately but we still live on about $2500/month and maybe even less.

I know Im a little bit younger but my dh and i just bought a house and he lost his NICE job and got one thats not so nice....but anyway we have all the normal house bills, cars, cell phones, insurances...and we manage with only about $3000/mo and still manage to save a few here and there. It can be real tight sometimes but we really learned how to get rid of all the things we dont really NEED and buy as cheap as possible!

We need about $1900 a month just to pay our bills. That doesn't include groceries, diapers, necessities, etc.
