Can you survive on an entry-level teacher's salary? Christine and Dave about their experiences surviving on a teacher salary in the Dallas, Texas area and how they were able to save money and eventually buy a house. Here are the key points from the discussion: The starting salary for a first-year teacher in McKinney ISD is $60,450 per month. After taxes and deductions, a single person could take home around $4,300 per month. Rent for a one-bedroom apartment in McKinney can be around $1,075 per month, including utilities and internet. Other expenses include car payments, gas, groceries, phone bill, streaming services, clothes, entertainment, and student loan debt. We estimate that a single person could live comfortably on around $2,500 per month, leaving $1,800 left over for savings. By saving consistently for a few years, it is possible to save up for a down payment on a house. We also discuss the importance of side hustles and how we were able to supplement our income when we were first starting out. We acknowledge that everyone's situation is different and that there is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of whether or not someone can survive on an entry-level teacher's salary. However, we believe that it is possible with careful planning and budgeting. --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/frugalfitmom/support

She was so excited to have some spending money for this special trip. That first pair of Minnie Mouse ears and cherry rainbow lollipop purchased on Main Street ignited the magic within. Over thirty years later, Kayla and her husband Randy are Walt Disney World Annual Passholders who have completed more than 20 Disney trips at Disney World and Disneyland in recent years. They regularly plan and take their four sons on family vacations having enjoyed amazing experiences at Universal Studios; in New York City, Hawaii, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Utah, and Mexico;  sailing a Caribbean cruise, and much more. When Kayla isn’t traveling, she runs a health coaching practice she started five years ago from her home in Houston, Texas. And, Kayla and Randy have so much to say about Disney that they even created their own weekly podcast—Whistle While You Work. --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/frugalfitmom/support
