Sometimes all the % you hear about depends on where you live and how much you make. I pay close to 75% of what I make on housing. After my rent, I have about $350 a month for heat, electric, car insurance etc. The fact that my job feeds me 5 days a week helps a GREAT deal. ( I have also paid off all my credit cards and got a $300 bonus from work)
Here is the kicker.. I called an apartment complex that is considered to be affordable. I don't make enough money to qualify for it. I am short about $2500 a year. I do work overtime when I can get it. So, with the OT, I am still short $1000- $1500. Makes sense huh?
