    I’ve seen these polls a few times, and the only problem with it is the fact that the amount of money you make doesn’t mean anything depending on where you live. So for you, what makes some people feel rich, would be poverty in say NYC 🙂

    @MrsSl82be: Exactly, Darling Husband and I are in the 150 – 200k range and not remotely rich.

    My Fiance and I both pull in anywhere from 90-100k depending on how bonuses go… and we live in Tennessee so we are comfortable

    @LGenz: And see, that salary range would be the cream of the crop where I live.

    I work for a non profit and do graduate school and he does graduate school and works as a TA.  We are living the simple life, that is for sure!  Hopefully once we are both out of school we will be able to do things, like eat food again.   I’m kidding, sort of.  But it will be nice when we have our advanced degrees and hopefully higher paying jobs!

    It’s somewhere between 150k-175k but we live in the midwest so we are comfortable and don’t have to worry about anything. Also we have no debt all cars and homes are paid for.

    Edit: I thought I would add our ages I’m 22 FH is 38. I don’t work (stay at home Mom) and he owns a company that fixes machinary (bobcats, cranes, etc.)

    Also, it depends on where you are in life.  If you are 21 and just graduated college, it is very different than if you are 35 with a 20 year work history and 2 kids you are supporting.

    I agree with the post about where you live makes a difference.  We are in the $125-150 category right now and we are no where near “living large”.  Cost of living is very different in parts of the US.

    @eeniebeans: I was going to say the same. I’m 21 and still in college so I think I make a lot for where I am in life, but definitely don’t make anywhere near what some of the PP’s said!

    We make good money but in CT, and are comfortable, however my bff lives in GA and we make the same combined salaries, and they are living like kings.

    We do OK but my Fiance is a full time student, once he graduates in 2 years the picture will be completely different. I am fortunate in that my 2nd job brings in what a lot of people in our area make per year and my main job pays all our bills.

    We make about $40,000 or so. In Gainesville, it’s not “rich” per se, but we’re definitely not hurting for $.. We put 25% of each paycheck in savings/loan payments and still eat well and go out and pay rent 🙂

    ETA: In response to coffeegal, we’re 22 and 23, and these are our first “real” jobs starting out after undergraduate, so you’re right – it’s probably not accurate to compare us to others more established in their careers.
