I live out in the midwest, so living expenses are relatively low. Here's my current budget
After tax pay: 2300
Utilities and Other fixed Expenses: 100
Cleaning lady: 150
I have ~$1000 left for food, entertainment, shopping, and travel. How would you spend it?
The reason my fixed costs seem proportionally high is because the pay above is biweekly; my take home/month is actually ~4500. However, that other paycheck is saved, invested, and used to service debt.
