    For the sake of this discussion we will define “live comfortably”, as is defined by the 50-30-20 rule, which requires:

    50% of your income should be to cover necessities, 30% for discretionary items,
    and 20% percent gets saved

    1st column is population of the city

    2nd column is the income needed to live “comfortably”(how much income you’ll need to meet the 50/30/20 rule, in that city)

    3rd column is the average household income for that city

    If your city is listed, are you living comfortably?

    Again, for the sake of the discussion- “comfortably”, is defined as stated by the 50/30/20 rule.

    I lived in Raleigh until early this year. I was making 31K and I felt like I was good. I’m not in any debt, bills get paid on time. But according to this chart I was well under the required salary to live comfortably.

    Now I live in Charlotte and I make 43K, it feels great and I’m eating great, but according to this I’m still not “comfortable” :lupe:...

    And since when does “San Jose” have almost a million people :dahell:

    Columbus OH, too :mindblown:

    You know, you hear about these Jose’s and Columbus’ of the world but you don’t think to yourself that there’s more people there than DC or Indianapolis or Atlanta :dahell: I mean what the hell is a “San Jose” ??

    Why are nikkas starving in Cleveland, Detroit and Milwaukee at $40,000 a year

    My family live in Cleveland and it’s amazing so many single black moms there with no dudes in the home...

    Can u imagine a sister and brother both married in these places both making $40,000 a year... you’ll be living real nice....

    Like @Buckeye Fever, if your city isn’t listed, what city/cities COULD you live in “comfortably”, from the list?

    Or, if your city is listed but you’re under the required salary to live there comfortably, what’s the best city up there where you would be good at? :lupe:

    For me, making 43K, it’d be Bakersfield Ca
