Absolutely!! My aunt makes more than that but she still budgets for things. Given her budgets are higher than most she still has to do them. Mo money mo problems.


Quoting HousewifeNina:

My husband brings in a bit more than that before taxes. One thing I have learned is if we overspend, it doesnt matter how much he makes.

With our income combined, we make $70 an hour before taxes - but we are firmly middle-class because of the area we live in.

If you are a double income family that's only 40,000 per annum each salary which is not much at all. If you have a mortgage, retirement funds and daycare costs it's not as much as you think.

Maybe it is and maybe it isn't. I always get a kick out of posts like this, I'm sure there's someone out there that will say that they can't live on making that much an hour.
