I always wondered why was there always so much month left, at the end of the money, even with DH working lots of overtime and us being pretty frugal.
Well, when the kids started school, they brought these forms that show you if you qualify for free lunch. I always throw them out, b/c I know we can afford to feed our kids. This time I did check them out , just b/c I was curious. There is a chart in there with yearly incomes and family size ratio. The chart goes up to 6 kids, but it also gives you an amount you can add per person to the total yearly income.
It turns out that even if my DH made a little over $ 90,000 a year we would STILL qualify for free lunches with our family size!
It kind of made me feel better, that I am not imagining things and our money is not just dissapearing...
$90 K a year isn't low income!
