since i started the thread i'll go first. getting older and trying to cop a place of my own so i've been trying to save as much as i can. take home pay after taxes is about $3k. (need to find a higher paying job, but beggars can't be choosers at the moment) i'd say i save about $2k a month right now. my monthly spendings basically goes to going out with my gf and personal spending. my rent situation right now i only have to pay very minimally, so i'm really lucky in that aspect. guess i'm starting this thread just to see where everyone else is potentially use it as a motivation to reach a certain salary.
