Budget

Erin Cunha

I live in an apartment in Fall River with a roommate. I work at the local bar making about $67,000 a year. After taxes I make $5,583 a month. I spend a little too much on take out and candy/other snack foods when I do my shopping. Every month I put away $50 in my savings and another $50 in my retirement.

Things I Need:

* A place to stay ($700)

* Health Insurance (About $25 a month)

* Food (about $70 a month)

Things I Want:

* A house (probably around $400,000)

* A dog ($350-$500)

* To get married ($40,000)

My SMART Goal:

Buy a house

It is a long term goal.
