ariechert wrote,Man! Do you all really live your lives like that? When I was making $28,000 a year I thought I was doing well! At that salary I was able to invest $200 dollars a month (403B) and still have a decent amount to live on. If I had $80,000 a year to spend I could eat lobster every day, buy a new boat, take trips to Europe, take a couple of cruises every year, and drive a new car every three years, etc. I live in a house with ten acres of land valued at $79,000, drive a ten year old Toyota, all of my bills together come out to $900.00/month, and I feel like I have a pretty good life. I don't really struggle for money, and keep all my bills paid. Where do you come up with these exorbitant sums of money? Are you for real? I always felt like I was middle class; I guess I was POOR! I suspect you are middle class.It's also likely that you are living a full and rich life in comparison to folks living in quiet desperation on $200,000 per year in places like Manhattan and Silicon Valley.intercst
