About $20K per month, depending on investment performance.

Also, do you really mean per month or gross income divided by 12? I get paid bi-weekly and I get an annual bonus, while my wife gets trimester bonuses, so monthly isn't all that important to us. As we bring home far more than we spend each month and that is all that matters.

Well I guess we are on the poorer side here judging by the posts lol. I'm a stay a home mom and hubby brings in a little over $4000 a month. Maybe his move into the finance field shortly will turn that around when he gets more experience. He has the potential to make more than his current gov't job which he is maxed out on paywise

I went with salary/12 and excluded bonuses since they are variable and or can be none existent

I am one of the poor folks! I gross $3120 per month, but I pay all my bills, live by myself and have money for extras and for savings.
