My household takehome pay is around $6,900/month (after all deductions, payroll taxes, insurances, etc).
It sure sounds like a lot, but when $2,600 goes to mortgage and property taxes, $800-1000 to smaller bills (cell phones, internet, electric, gas, etc), about another $1000 on food/dining out, $400 to car payment, $300 on gas, $300-500 on household maintenece expenses...we're left with around $1,000-$2000 per month extra. This does allow me to live very comfortably, but believe me, it's not RICH. Not even close.
And we're going to have kids soon, which will eat a large chunk of that excess money.
