Continue: Health benefits are nice. 3k a year I have to pay in premium and it a 4k deductible each year for the Employee and Spouse plan. Problem is this position is making cynical as hell. There is 4 clients I really hate and never want to see again. I like the managers even though 1 can be a pain in the ass. It feels like I have given up. Whenever I have to work on these 4 clients. I don't care if I do a shitty job. Hell I try and do a shitty job so they will be taken from me. All good reasons. The clients suck. None of them keep good books. One of them decided to "change the ownership structure" of a partnership so we had to supersede the return. One of them keeps saying that her books are wrong and we need to do the tax return the correct way. Another has bad books. Keeps his assets on like 5 different systems. Audit immaterials any difference in assets they find (for example a 400k difference in assets between their TB and the Proof they had in assets" When I try to find a new position and get an offer it requires me to take a pay cut when I compare Total compensation. Am I expecting to much to get paid more with my experience or at least get the same pay? Or am I paid well. I am in a MCOL city.

83k total comp. About 79 when I take in considerations the premiums I have to pay for Health Insurance.

How do you know when you have enough money? I got laid off in the spring, but don’t feel a pressing need to get a new job right away.

I spend less than $2k/mth and feel happy and comfortable. Not married and no kids... but would like that one day, so thinking of maybe saving some more money for that. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice?
