Where in the US would you like to talk about - the amount would vary extremely depending on location.

Its obvious that if you live in a big city you are going to have to pay more for insurances, possibly local taxes, and from what I have seen, gas.

Please, just talk about where you live. In a visit to Louisiana a few years ago, people were complaining that you needed $30,000 pa for a couple to just exist.

A lot of people on the UK Fool ask the question "how much capital do I need to retire", without having calculated the bare minimum income to exist comfortably without fun spending. This post was aimed at uncovering that.
