Being able to pay the bills and having money left over for savings.
it may depend on where you actually live, but i consider middle class to be an income of $50,000 - $100,000
I think a lot depends on your area. Where I live I'd say $80,000 to $250,000.
To me middle class is having money to pay your bills and having money left over. Being able to go get some clothes or to dinner if you want to.
We make $200,000 a year, can pay all of our bills, go on vacation, save for retirement, etc. I consider us middle class.
Quoting sweetiepye2004:To me middle class is having money to pay your bills and having money left over. Being able to go get some clothes or to dinner if you want to.
we are middle class
we have savings, college savings, no PA, we have nice cars, insurance, we have spending money, our kids are in sports and dance, and we can afford to take vacations ( Not to Maui each year, but still decent ones...lol)
We donate and help where we can. That is our middle class rut...lol
Based on the PA posts in mc...I am curious to see the responses you get.
Probably around 45K and up. You have a house, pay your bills, small debt if any, you have insurance, retirement and savings. You could have this with less too though.....
