We make between $6000-$8000 a month depending on overtime and bonuses. Out mortgage at the moment is around $1500 a month and utilities about another $800 on top of that.

Geeze some of these incomes and costs of living are crazy high lol I live in rural Minnesota. I've just been seeing a lot of great deals on houses lately like 80000 for a nice house. I have no idea what sort of job ill get but I think I should at least be able to get something making like a couple thousand a month

Quoting :" Wouldn't you still have taxes?"

Of course. I mean I do not spend money month to month on rent etc... I have property tax bills, have to spend money on its upkeep etc...

No I get money from financial aid. Like after classes are paid fr. I'd rather not use it buuuuut it's worth it to me considering if I didn't I'd have to live in my parents home and that's just really stressful.
