I was recently metioned at The Financial Ladder because I decided to strip down and reveal my income.
I owe a special thank you for the mention under a very interesting title 😉
Projected 2006 – $45,000
I was reading some blogs and I came across Madame X’s topic about why she believes in revealing her income.
I have to add that I think it is a great what she is doing. At the same time, I can see why other pf bloggers are hesitant so reveal such personal information.
I have eluded to what my family’s income is in a comment I have made within my blog – but I am inspired by her to just put it out there. Why not? It will give you a better picture on my financial position.
Projected 2006 – 40,000
2005 – 26,000
2004 – 28,400
2003 – 27,400
2002 – 23,700
I have to say projected because who knows what the future holds. I have worked some overtime lately so it could be higher. Or, I could be laid off tomorrow. But, at this given moment – that is what we are making (both my husband and I work).
So, when I say my mortgage is $337.00 – you can see it isn’t too bad with what we make. We’ve never really considered ourselves poor and we make do with what we have. Now – we both say that we would be rich once our debt is paid off because we would have so much extra a month for other things (about $1300/month). 🙂
It also should be noted that I don’t live in a big city and I live in a fairly rural area. So my cost of living isn’t as high.
So, there is is. I feel a bit naked – so I better get some more clothes on 😛
