We make about $7000 a month, our housing costs are about $1300.



Your housing expenses should be no more than 35% of your monthly income.

SO makes about 1200 in checks and maybe 300 in tips a month. The money I use on bills is money I get every 3 months but comes out to about 1200 a month. So together we make 2400 and pay 650 for rent. Then 200 in utilities.

Together we make probably $2500-3000/month. $440 rent, and overall $400ish for monthly bills, and then extra bills (cars, insurance, cell bills, student loans, etc). We usually don't have a lot left over each month.
