    I see a lot of screenshots on here of people making anywhere from $800/month to $5k/month, so my question is, how do you guys spend your money? What have you learned from budgeting your online income that you could share with a newbie?

    usually 70% of the profit will go to escalate the methods for more profits

    Typical month nowadays (consistently changing, but what can you do):

    Income: ~$9,000 after the tax man and 401k man gets some of my day job income (rounding). Sometimes it's a little lower, sometimes it's a LOT higher.

    Where it goes (also rounding):

    GENERAL EXPENSES
    $850 for rent, water, sewer, trash
    $100 for electricity
    $200 for my wife's car payment
    $800 for groceries/misc
    $400 for eating out and entertainment
    $150 for gas and vehicle maintenance
    $500 for other various expenses
    TOTAL: $3,000

    BUSINESS
    $1,000 to business taxes
    $1,000 to general business expenses
    $500 to miscellaneous business expenses
    TOTAL: $2,500

    SAVINGS, ETC
    $2,000 to money market/investments
    $500 to emergency fund (up until December, when the fund reaches six months of expenses. Then that additional $500/month goes to money market/investments)
    $500 towards my wife's student loans (don't have to start paying yet, just being proactive)
    $500 towards a nice vacation
    TOTAL: $3,500

    I probably spend the bulk of my money on none of your fucking business. Then the rest I usually save for head the other direction with that horseshit.

    More important than anything else is to live below your means. If you make $5k a month and spend $5k a month, sure you will live lavishly, but if you spend $3k a month you'll live just fine and have $2k to save and give yourself the peace of mind knowing that you are safe in case of a dried-up method or a business closure or a layoff. It's definitely a good anxiety reduction.

    Great response! Do you by chance use quickbooks self employed? I been in business for 8 months and just registered an LLC. I have a friend who makes great money with his business and he uses quickbooks and sends it to turbotax ever quarter. Thanks
