Realistic take home pay each week
- 0Aug 28, '12 by nursetaminatorCan a traveling RN realistically be able to bring home (net) each week at least $1,000?
Will find my own housing, no car rental or medical insurance needed, etc. - will take care of all that myself (well, some of it via my husbands retirement benefits).
Trying to work on a half-way realistic budget for the future. My spouse won't have a guaranteed income, other than his pension.

Really having to work a little bit to convince my husband this is doable! We live well below our means but still a little nervous about the unknown and losing part of our income when he retires. No matter how many times I tell him that if others can do it, so can we he still gives me that look. ;-)

Typically housing is about $6-10 per hour (depending on area). So if a job pays $30 with housing, it would be $36-40 without.
