    You can list your average take home pay per month if you wish.

    Mortgage: $1331 + $380 (taxes) = $1711, $1900 sent every month however
    Dakota: $391
    9-3: $392
    Utilities: $550 (oil, water, elect. cable, tel., internet)
    Insurance: Paid in full each year, but on a monthly: $66
    Debt: $600 (wifes CC, Consolidation Loan)
    2nd Property Mortgage: $214
    Total: $4,113 :ph34r:

    Not included:
    Entertainment (going to dinner, drinks, friends, etc.) ~$400-$600/mo
    Household supplies (cleaning, etc.) ~$50/mo
    Gas: $320/mo both cars
    Groceries: ~$300/mo.

    Total + Not Included = $5,183 - $5,383/mo :eek:


    I have excluded investments because 75% of them are done pre-tax and taken out of our gross income. I occasionaly spend a few hundred on stocks, etc. Our remaining monies are put into our MMA and Savings Accounts. On average, we're saving approximately $2k/mo. but is increasing due to my wife's new position.

    So what's your tally?

    The g/f and I set it up like this...

    We each toss 1200 bucks a month into a joint account for all the bills and whatnot. She gets paid monthly so she does the 1200 in one shot (pays for rent). I get paid weekly, so it's four 300's for me (bills, etc). Whatever is left over stays in there. The rest of our incomes is our personal cash to do whatever we want.

    Breakdown is something like this:

    rent - 1200/mo
    elec - 45 - 50/mo
    highspeed/phone 35/mo
    cable - free
    insurance - 150/mo (both policies)
    credit cards - 200/mo
    student loan(s) - 200/mo
    groceries - 150/mo
    gas for me - 30/mo
    gas for her - 60/mo

    average combined income: 5200/mo

    Right now I make $12/Hour working 9 hours a day, 5 days a week. It adds up to just over $2100 then on the weekends I help my uncle out at his place cutting and grinding steel and welding it all up... so i make just over $2500/Month right now like I said...and I get paid in cash for all of it so it's good.
    Everyone always seems to question me on here....it's really annoying.

    Bad news:

    Monthly income: about $4200
    Monthly expenses (everything but entertainment): about $4000

    Good news:

    Debt: None. Zilch. Nada. No credit cards, no mortgage (just rent), car's paid off too. Only problem with that is almost no credit, either. :p

    What type of electrician program are you talking about? Apprenticiship?

    I also call bs on your wages based on what I know about average wages of the trades. Your dad must be one hell of a good company owner or incredibly stupid to pay his guys that much for an electrician. Your dad is paying what guys in my area charge for a weekend/holiday emergency call.

    Gas - $240
    Insurance -$130
    Cell Bill - (around) $48-63
    No rent (not yet)
    Tool loan - $40

    On weekends I usually spend about $40-60 between food, beer and hookers.

    Equals about $460+$160

    Overall about $600ish a month. But I don't have any outstanding debts, I own my car - and I still live at home while I go to school. I bring home between $400-500 every two weeks working part time. Some of it goes to random purchases, but I stash away what I can each pay period.

    thats because :bs:your stories don't seem to add up, and most people are skeptical(especially when it comes to kids telling stories on the net). For instance how do you go to school and work 9 hours a day plus luch break and commute?

    Is banning just as hard? I forgot, I haven't done it in so long.

    And HOW aren't my facts straight there chico? You say $35/hr in one thread, then its $50/hr. and UP TO $60/hr in this thread. I'll wave that flag as high as I can asshat.

    Oh, and not for nothing, but a quick salary search for an ELECTRICIAN III (meaning full experiences jones) in Oregon has a median salary of $53,5k/YR. which equates out to just over $25/hr. I highly doubt your ol' man is paying these resources $35/hr. additional over the median salary in Oregon - and thats even considering commercial work.

    Oops, there I go waving the BS flag again. Go on and dislike all you want, I don't lose sleep over it.
