  • I think the lines have been blurred, so I'm not even sure anymore :) My husband works two blue collar jobs and we are both finishing up our degrees, but we have a brand new house and two SUVs. We are very careful with our money and we made sure we would never be house poor. We have nice things, but don't go overboard. If there is a true middle class, I think we would represent it well.

  • I don't consider myself anything, but I'm technically lower class. And actually, many of the people who say they are middle class are actually lower class.

  • If you live within your means financialy. It does not matter how much money you make. The more money you make the more problems you have. and the more taxes you pay.

    So true!

    Louise, I agree. I have a family member and with her and her husband they make a GREAT INCOME (i'm not disclosing how much, but it is more than enough). However, they have money problems. A lot people associate "money problems" with those who make close to nothing. My family member does not live within their means, though ., spend frivolously, and they buy things they truly can not afford and have more money problems than anyone I know who makes less than they do.

    I think we are lower-middle.

    Not necessarily. If you're smart with your money, it can make things easier and eliminate a lot of problems. However, you're right about the taxes.

  • I would say lower. Because we are just getting by and have debt. I don't think there is much "middle" class anymore. To me, middle class would be someone that has a modest home, is able to pay all their bills, and have a little left to spare. Most people I know think they are middle class but everything they have was paid for with borrowed money and they live paycheck to paycheck.
