…eases come from doubled incomes, and a mere $40,000 a year salary would literally double my income. So I mean it when I say it is unimaginable to me that anyone who makes $50,000 lives paycheck-to-paycheck. If I made that money, I’d be swimming in it, baby!
I made $120+ a year (for just me, no family to support) and I lived paycheck to paycheck! Living in the most expensive county in the US and paying 50% of my income to the IRS gutted me. Making more money is not always a good thing.
