A Week In Detroit, MI, On A $65,000 Salary

All Other Monthly Expenses
Car Payment: $228 for my leased car
Phone: $0. It’s on my company’s plan and costs me nothing out of pocket.
Health Insurance: ~$80
401(k): I put in 5% and my company matches it with another 5%
Savings: $1,000 minimum. This was a new goal for me in 2018.
Other: In an effort to help me build my savings account, my boyfriend covers the cost of gas, groceries, car insurance, gym membership, Spotify, and a few other miscellaneous expenses. A lot of these go on a credit card with cash back offers and are paid in full at the end of every month. We are getting engaged soon and are beginning to combine our finances as we get ready to pay for a wedding (and eventually a house) together!
