Pop quiz: How much is your monthly take-home pay?

If you’re like most people, you probably can’t answer that question off the top of your head. So, I want to help you change that! Today, I simply want you to add up your income for last month, after taxes. This isn’t complicated math, so you can mark it off the list quickly.

If you’re married or working multiple jobs, make sure to include those income sources too.

This may be super easy for some of you, but stay with me! Today’s task will set you up for success with the next few challenges coming up.
