I live alone in a two bedroom apartment. Rent alone runs me 38%. Adding in electricity and the phone brings me up to 43%.
What amazes me is that I thought I was doing good. I realize that a lot of people out there make more money than I do but I’m still doing better than a lot of people still. Hell, I only make $2 an hour less than my father and he’s had his job for ten years whereas I’ve had mine for three months.
How are you people only paying 20%? Roomates? Holes in the wall? Extremely well paying jobs?
