As Gator pointed out, the money you make per month is dependent on three things.
1. Number of games per month
You have to play with the numbers a little bit to find a balance that works best for you. (Creating a spreadsheet might be a good idea.) Making 1k-2k per month definitely IS possible, but asking others, how much and at what stakes THEY play, is not necessarily going to help YOU.
For example, if you're playing the 20+2 SNGs, and expect to have a ROI of 10% (it's possible to have it higher, but I suggest being conservative in that kind of estimations), then you earn $2.2 per game. 1000 : 2.2 = 455 games per month. Playing 24 days every month you need to play 455 : 24 = 19 games every day you play. Even if playing on 4 tables at once (and you say you can only do two), that's still about 5-hour workday.
Are you willing/able to play that much?
If the answer is no, then you have a number of options:
1) Increase the number of tables (affects ROI)
2) Play on higher stakes (requires extra study and more time before you start profiting)
3) Increase ROI (requires extra work)
4) Be satisfied with earning less than 1k per month
All are viable options. It's up to you to find out what best suits for you.
