I’m leaning towards just getting by - I definitely need to negotiate a raise soon.

I have some savings, but definitely not as much as I'd like. Right now, I'm focusing on paying down debt so I can have better cash flow. I'm relatively comfortable, but I'd love to be bringing in more. What about you, OP?

I'm confused. I earn well but the family's needs continue to grow.

Yeah, I feel pretty well set up for my age and background

What is your CTC and your age?

I still want a little more but things are comfortable enough.

How much are you at?

I'm just floating by on my current salary. I do some side work that helps me with my fun purchases. Not saving as much as I should be though

What kind of side work do you do?
