Paycheck To Paycheck: Why Even Americans Who Earn $100,000 Struggle With Bills.
While people with the lowest incomes face the biggest challenges, even some households making above $200,000 are straining to pay basic expenses.I'd like to have that problem.
Yeah, I was going to say. If you're a single person making 100k+ a year and can't live on it you need to do some budgeting. It also heavily depends on where you live and the cost of living. 100k a year in Manhattan is peanuts. In Wichita I'm sure you can live quite well on that.
Like invest wisely...as that fella in Virginia did. Nice return on investment there. I like stories like that. Fuck my luck. Bought 2 instant lottery tickets today - not quite understanding how they worked until after the fact as it's a new lottery - and I didn't win. And then I bought a couple of scratch and win tickets...which I lost while I was out shopping. Hopefully someone else found them and made a few bucks off my bad luck.
