I currently live on less than $35k/yr. That includes some disposable expenses. I don't feel held back by income.

Single, share an apartment, paid off car, LBYM. Health insurance is covered.

I could get by on $20k. I think that would not really be a happy place, though.

If I lived alone and had to cover health insurance, $35k would be ok. But not much room for "disposable expenses".
