If you earn less than $60,000 a year, respond to this thread, I just want to prove that most people are living on less than this amount per year to survive...

Shit, if I only made $60,000 I would be embarrassed and poor. I feel sorry for you peasants who have to live on those types of scraps.

Funny how 'social security' has a shortfall...but never WELFARE!
Gimme a break.
Somehow, we can always afford ALL types of welfare (even for millions of illegal immigrants!), plus billions in foreign aid to nations that hate us...BUT...social security is a "problem".

35,000 a year roughly, three kids, married, $800/month in rent. I'm surviving and paying the bills, and manage to splurge on the kids once in awhile. Ita a lot of work and budgeting but I'm happy, that's what matters.

I once had a landlord that owned multiple properties in both California and Hawaii and had just built themselves a large pricey house in an upscale neighborhood. Several times while I lived there they called and begged us to please pay the rent early if we could because they were out of food.

Yes, much better - higher IQ, better educated, better at dealing with people and working with them to get things done, better at speeches, conducting meetings, better at socializing, less lazy, less of a procrastinator, more organized, I could go on and on.

It's all about your monthly 'nut'.

Some people make $100k and can't pay the bills, while someone making $30k w/o overhead can live like a king.

I'd rather have a residual income (which I have) than make $100k working for The Man.

Way less than 60k. Freelancing isn't what it used to be, but I do well enough. Saving to buy so I don't have to rent anymore. It'll probably be a while, but It's a goal that means a lot to me, so I know I'll get there.
