    Your cell phone bill looks a little high. We have AT&T/Cingulair and only pay about $47.00 a month with 500 minutes. Could you sign up for a family rate plan and get a better deal overall?

    It doesn't look like you are broke to me, because you have money going to your IRA, to your EF, and to misc savings. It just looks like every dollar is spoken for.

    Good job.

    good job. i would call someone broke if they were paying their cc and bills with no money left to save, which you clearly have saved. so i don't think you're broke at all! Smile

    Amber, I get what you're saying. After paying bills and meeting savings goals, there's not a lot left for entertainment and/or incidentals. I have the same issue each month. Its not that we're broke, per se, but that we have little left over after we meet our obligations and goals. Great job with the savings!

    Thanks guys, I never thought about the fact that I am socking something away which is better than nothing
