I read about all of your housing costs and have no idea how you all make it. I live in Wisconsin and our morgage is $232.00 a month, gas is approx. 100.00 a month and so is the electric.
I am a stay at home mom and my husband works at a glass plant. We live in a rural area just north of a tourist city. There is no way we could afford to live elsewhere.
Renting a home ( 2 bed. 1 bath) in this area is right around 350-400 with everything included. My neice lives in a city – Rockford, Ill.
and pays over $1000.00 a month for a one bedroom apartment plus everything else….and she just barely makes it. I have told her over and over…if you cant afford to live there, then there are places where you can live pretty cheap, just not in the city. And trust me, its hard to make it on one income even where we live!
*smiles* I give you all credit because if we
didnt have such cheap resources here then we would never make it, we live paycheck to paycheck most times.
Ahhh…imagining that irresistible “new car” smell?
