I'm a army 2nd LT so medical/health/dental are all paid for.
Base pay (and only taxable income:) $2,867
Housing Allowance: $1158
Food allowance: $234
Rent (includes all utilities/furnished apt:) $779
Loan: $500 a month on 25k 2.99%
Gas: $150 (if that, I'm in the field a lot)
Girlfriend: priceless (been dating for 4 years, will end up getting engaged this summer and probably married next year when she finishes dental hygiene school. She has school loans.)
What do I do with the rest of the money I am sitting on every month (just a tad bit above 2k?)
Any advice on possible way to budget and make smart decisions would be helpful. I am heading to sleep now and will check back in the morning. TIA.
Eta: the numbers are per month.
Also I have no credit cards and no investments.
