    Re: What does it cost you to live per day?

    I spend about 15-20 a day. 2 days out of the week about $100 that's including filling up my gas tank. I used to go to red lobster, olive garden, tgif everyday but i stopped and now I'm glad my girlfriend makes me breakfast lunch and dinner.

    Wonder about those poverty lines. But that is the amount that I was living on for 3 years in Seattle. Seattle is one of the more expensive cities. Actually I was living on $1,100 a month but that was 4 years ago.

    We live in a world in which 2 billion live on less than $2 a day and only the richest 10%, or 700 million make more than $15K/yr. And things are globally priced. Sure, you can live cheaper in Zimbabwe but you could here as well with Zimbabwean standards.

    And, again, you have a nice mix of food, veggies and fruit being prominently mentioned.
    You do have to look and choose wisely to have a good balance of food. 2 of 1 specials are always nice. Meat is not that expensive if you choose wisely and freeze until you plan to use. We are in the lucky position to buy our groceries from three different countries if we want to. I live about 8 miles from both the Belgian and German borders and can go to shop there if the price is right.

    I know, I lived in rural Africa for two years.

    [QUOTE=AliHajiSheik;1062928524]Looks like a few people don't know how to allocate their monthly and yearly expenses to each day's expenses.
    If your rent is $600/month, then that allocates to $20/day.[
    /QUOTE]




    And if your house is bought and paid for, or you live in a van down by the river, you don't have to worry about rent.

    I tell you, kids these days have it so easy.
