No, I pay rent in Boston

What level OP? Care to share a breakdown of expenses vs typical income. Very impressive savings rate! Do you feel you are making huge lifestyle sacrifices?

I am a senior associate. Net take home is about $8K-$9K a month, rent is $575. I'm very cheap so not many expenses. There is a trade off to having a shitty apartment, namely relations with the opposite sex. But I'm willing to make this sacrifice to retire early

I heard something new (well too me lol) the other day that has stuck in my head.
Confession: I want a “Brain Dump” partner.
It was explained to me that at the end of the day you have a sit down with your partner/roommate/friend and “brain dump”—talk about anything that happened during the day, at work or personally that bothered you or happened so that you can get it all out before you go to sleep. Then you can start fresh each day. 😊 just thought I would share!

Having grown up in the lower middle class and not with much money family wise, I always thought one day when I made six figures I would have tons of money coming in, but lately I am discouraged with my “take home pay”. Combined my wife and I make about $275k, we max both our 401k accounts out and after all taxes, and other deductions we take home roughly $150k. Don’t get me wrong this is a great amount. I just always dreamed my take home would be more. Anyone else feel this way? We lose over 40%
