How much money do you usually have left over after paying all your bills off every month? You don't have to give exact amount. Just an average. What do you do with it? Save? Spend?

After JUST paying bills we have a pretty decent amount. But we spend it on ridiculous shit. We need to budget better.

around $600/month



I try to save at least $100- 200 but that depends on a month

Usually we have about 200 a week leftover (we get paid weekly). We used to put it into the kids savings but now that is direct deposit BEFORE we get our paychecks. Now I've been using like 1/2 of that to put things on layaway and the other in savings.

$800ish a month



We put half into savings and spend the rest on different things we may want...booze for get togethers, makeup, music, movies, video games, eating out, so and so forth

After JUST bills, or after other expenses, too, like gas, etc?

Nothing, haha. But we have credit card payments that if we have money left over from paying our immediate bills, we put a bulk amount towards the credit cards or car payment to lower the interest.

We just paid off our car =D It was about 500, now it's closer to 1000. We generally put part into savings, and use part to do work on our house/back yard.
