    Great budget. Maybe add homeowners insurance (1000 per year?).

    When I was younger (25) I actually participated in Crown Financial ministries thru church to organize budget but was not enthused about them mandating 10 percent tithe of gross income. My wife and I may have to get more organized about budgeting when we have kids, especially if she stays home.

    I have said this before but unless a family makes 200k per year it is hard to buy decent house in decent neighborhood in Chicago metro. Between the wife and I we make a little north of 300k but are conflicted about buying a house in nicer Chicago suburbs because of the taxes.

    Just so you know, I made 33k when I left Indy in 2003. When they offered me 42k to transfer to Chicago I thought I had it made. I actually saved more in Indy as I lived there with parents.

    Munster sounds better all the time to me. I just wish it was a faster commute to downtown and had more of a core.
