Do you feel like you just "get by" with your current salary? Or, are you comfortable enough?

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?

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?

Thoughts on HOA fees? I’m contemplating purchasing a condo in Washington DC and have my Redfin filter set for condos that charge below $400 p/m, but the offerings are limited.

For context, I’m 29, make 220k (300 if I can get the bonus) and am budgeting up to ~450k for the purchase. Thank you!
