Free grocery distribution this Saturday in Murfreesboro - No Questions Asked

If the head of a household is bringing in $39,000 annually and is married with two children, their weekly take home pay after taxes rings in at $657.05 or $2,628.2‬0 monthly. After one mortgage payment of $950, it drops down to $1,678.20‬ followed by a single car payment of $300 it equals $1,378.2‬0. If you are the only one working and you add into the mix utilities and insurance for your home and auto, you only have $978.20 left each month. This is the scenario many residents are facing. With one week off of work and a skipped paycheck (if your work is paid hourly), the amount falls down to only $321.15 remaining in your bank account.
