    Plus-why is anyone worried about what it costs other people to live?

    Does this person plan of paying our living expenses?

    If not it's a mighty nosy question.

    What does that have to do with how much it costs you to live per day?

    Are taxes your only living expense?

    I find that hard to believe.

    That includes health care, housing, insurance, debt payment etc. etc. etc. and of course daily expenses like food, gas, water and electricity.



    What about taxes?

    Don't you pay taxes?

    I was responding to someone talking about taxes, hence my comments about that.

    No one is forcing you to post in the thread.

    It's called having and keeping close watch on a budget.

    Most people who have to pay their own bills do that.

    everybody does, but most taxes are paid before you get the money on your bank account. Only VAT (sales tax), sewer tax and taxes like that are paid after you receive your wage.

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

    $25 a day = an income of $9,125 a year, after tax, I guess. I reckon that's about what I have coming in. As far as regular outgoings, they look like this:

    €1.5 electricity (goes down to ¢75 May-November)
    €2.5 butane (goes down to ¢25 May-November)
    €4 diesel for the car (€4 = 3l.= 50km. I work 24 km away from home)
    €6 food
    €1 local taxes, water, sewage
    €1 internet connection
    €0.5 mobile phone

    €16.50 total = $22.60

    Doesn't leave much room for manoeuvre, so I've no idea how anyone can cope on much less. Still, I'm lucky in owning my home outright and not having any major addictions.
