This is a really helpful thread! I save about $5-8k per month bc I'm trying to get serious about buying a house. I used to order delivery a lot and now we make more dinners at home. I don't have major expenses yet, just dog walker, car payments, etc. so that helps a ton. Also anyone at pwc that thinks we get big league bonuses is smoking crack. We definitely don't. The manager milestone is good but that's it.

It's all based on your lifestyle. 5 years ago I made less than what I do now and I was saving 2000-2500 a month. Now I can barely save anything and I'm waiting on payday. It's because I had to have a "nicer" car and a "nicer" apartment. And I felt entitled to take nice trips because I "work hard" 😂. If you can't save then there's a 99% likelihood you are living beyond your means and you need to adjust your lifestyle. #DaveRamseyShowedMeTheLight

It depends on your income. If you are making 80k that is high. If you are making 120k that is low.

I don't save anything, check to check. But I understand where I've made mistakes and I'm fixing that. Downgrading my lifestyle, but I'd rather drive an old car and have a basic apartment with an overflowing bank account.
