I think it might be as low as $400 a month. I might have asked once but never really got a clear answer. My mother tends to become argumentative about anything dealing with bills so it's a topic best avoided unless you want to put up with her being in a rotten mood all day.
Your dad was making $96,000 a year as a truck driver!?
