$130,000 a year and still can't get it together.

Two years ago we made about $50,000 a year. Fast forward to now, we make more than double and we still have issues.

Ugh. More money, more problems. Living in DC doesn't help either. We used to live in Colorado.

    Time to make a budget to see what you can eliminate.

    Problems don't leave because you make money. Make yourself happy. I haven't encountered a problem in years. :)

    Depends on your lifestyle too. There's no way we could make it on 130k either.

    Is it like money spending problems or problems between you and your DH (like arguing and stuff)?

    Live like you did on 50,000. People think once they make more money, they need more things. If you were happy as a family when you lived in CO, go back to that way of life. I know you can't do anything about DC cost of living, but I bet you have at least a few things you didn't used to.

    Btw- this is in no way meant to sound mean, just a suggestion.
