  •  It's all relative (3+ / 0-)

    We pull in between 40 and 60k on two incomes. The variation is because my work is irregular contracting and my partner's is part time, depending on how much she wants to work. Our expenses are very low. Our small mortgage is paid off, we are debt free, the kids have long ago flown the coop and I'm blessed to be able to live on savings for a while as I take a break from working to work on the homestead.  This is with one college level education and one high school education.  We have zilch for a retirement fund. I expect to work until I die.

    We feel well off. Our neighbors in our poverty stricken little village think we are rich.

    OTOH, I imagine there are people here making twice that who feel pinched.

    -8.0, -7.03 don't always believe what you think...
