Sabrina , mom to 4 fab kids!
Wow, I voted low income, because DH is the only on that works and we live on about 50K a year for 6 people, but now I'm looking at some of the other things that matter, and now I see things differently. We have no debt, we own our house, our cars are paid off, and mine is only a couple of years old. No credit card debt at all. We live quite well on so little money, but I guess because we only pay for utilities (electric bill, phone/internet and TV) and essentials (car insurance, groceries-all organic top quality food, clothes, gas for cars) After that it's all up to me to figure out where the rest of it goes. No we don't have savings, but we aren't broke the day before pay day often either. We don't have any kind of government assistance, not even wic or medicaid. I have to say we are doing quite well. I went to culinary school, and could be making really good money right now, but I prefer to pass my skills along to my children rather than work outside of the home. I feel like my kids would benefit more from me being at home on a smaller income than living "large" or whatever on a double income. Not bad for a 27 and a 30 YO huh? I am proud of our little family, and how well we have done all by ourselves. I guess we are more like working class/middle class. I don't think it's really how much you make per year, I think it's really all about your amount of debt in relation to your income. I look at all of these extravagant houses popping up around my little 3 bedroom rancher, and think I wonder how much money they owe to get that?: I would take my little life with not too many worries, over their in debt up to their eyeballs any day
