Re: Percent of paycheck to childcare?
Since I am a contractor my income greatly varies, but last year I averaged 25% of my gross income or about 35% net I think. This year may be worse even though our costs went down tremendously. I think it would be around 40 or 45% because we have had a crappy year. I don't want to give up my nights and weekends with my family to be able to not have childcare and even if I did I wouldn't make as much.
