What’s a realistic amount to save on 130K of gross earnings per year assuming no loans and your goal is to save? I would imagine it’s (assuming HCOL) 85K net - (1.5K a month plus 100ish for utilities) 20K a year, 10K on necessities like food(mix of eating out/in, car insurance, gas, phone), 5-10K on luxuries like vacations, nice-to-have clothes, subscriptions, miscellaneous. This would net to 45K-50K saved a year right? What are your thoughts? Any costs I’m grossly underestimating/missing?

How does FDD healthcare compare to other industries? I have an offer to join a healthcare group at B4 and not sure if it is too limiting?
I'm going to retire off SHIB.
I can’t stand people who are “taking time off” and are online doing work. Like, why?!? Have some boundaries for yourself. No one thinks you’re a hero for doing this.
Roth or Trad 401K? $210K in yearly household income + 10% bonus (just wife and I, both 32y.o.). Take home pay is about $140K - includes 401K contributions and health benefits. Can't decide if Roth makes sense as I don't anticipate our retirement income will exceed current spending levels. I get the appeal of tax free withdrawals but at the expense of paying more up front. Any advice?
Metro just released a survey. If you all have 5 minutes to take the survey it would help to gauge recovery efforts. It talks about a new station(Potomac Yard) , the Virginia Tech Innovation Campus, asking if you have an Android or iPhone for touch-less payments, as well as any feedback for how comfortable you feel or any suggestions to offer regarding the health and safety of riders.
Mid life crisis maybe? I recently sold my house (mid renovation, was just sick of it) so now I am renting. I don't like my city, I am just here for the job. I don't really like that either, I had the job to pay for my house. I had a house because I had a lot of stuff. I have learned due to covid I can live happily out of my van/camper. I have no plan for kids and have decided I am happiest solo. Wtf do I do now? Feeling very aimless. Like I could probably coast-retire n live on $20k/yr.

I’m in my early 70s. Hanging on to a pretty easy creative job. Any thoughts on where and what to do next?
That feeling when a well meaning manager keeps ending meetings with “have a happy holiday, and enjoy some time off with your family,” and he is unaware that some of us (a) already celebrated Hanukkah (and don’t really celebrate anyway), (b) are alone and unhappy, (c) kind of have no reason to burn PTO for a non holiday when you’re alone, bored, and have nothing going on in yet another month of a terrible year. It’s like one more set of fingers on a chalk board listening to such pleasantries.
Getting into “Rental Property”. How many insurances do I have to get in total? I’m still confused about that (assume condo or single-family home): (1) Homeowner insurance (2) landlord insurance (3) renter insurance..... I assume tenant would get no. 3, but as an owner do I have to get no1. AND no.2 or just one of them? Any other insurance I’m missing? 🙏🏼

I feel so stuck in my life (28F). I just want to find my person and start building a life together. I feel like I have nothing to look forward to. I just want to create holiday memories with my new family and instead, I’m looking at another season with my dysfunctional as hell family. I know a negative attitude and comparing myself to others isn’t helping me, but I can’t seem to lift myself out of my funk…

I currently work for a mid market firm (regionally known, ranked between top 30 and 50). I am doing well and very well liked here. It’s a great fit culturally and I rarely work more than 45 hours a week doing FDD and my total comp is 115K this year. The last transaction I worked on closed for $380M so I do get to see deals of larger sizes. I’ve only been here about a year. I got an opportunity to leave to an investment banking role. Should I take it?
