That depends on how many people on the family. How much for rent. And things like that. Me and my bf for example we spend & $525 for rent every month, then $40 every 2 weeks for gas, then we pay electricity and gas that ends up being like $110 per month. Phone is like $130, and Internet is $40. Then for food we spend like $100 for like 15 days. And $54 for car insurance (but this is really cheap usually car insurance cost more)So I'm per month we spend like $1,139. And we make like $1,800 together per month so there's not much room to spend.
