The house, the car, the children, and a white picket fence. That's the image that some American's see as living the true American dream. But with our nation's strives and struggles, many are feeling that this dream is getting harder to reach.
Whether it be receiving that diploma or landing that high paying job, many of us are still on the search to find the true meaning of happiness.
So just what helps make up this dream?
The essentials include everything from house payments, car expenses, some food on the table, and utilities. Throw in a summer vacation, internet and cell phone bills, along with taxes, and the price tag is not cheap.
