Wow! I took the test. I need to count my blessings more. SHOCKED at where we are.
I worked out too that if we had another child (no chance in hell BTW) we would drop 8%. Interesting!
I think it's a good little scale for getting some perspective. But yes, children affect it pretty massively, but then, with all that food they eat and all the shoes they seem to go through, I'm not surprised
It's interesting that....2 adults 2 kids, and you get 120k as being about 50%, 150k as being 99%
This year we'll have the highest combined income we've ever had, and sit (according to that) at 9%. DP estimated us at being 30%, I estimated 15%. Still see us as being incredibly fortunate and by no means struggling :P
I dont understand how this works :/
I have electricity, food, a decent and safe house.
we have access to the internet, my children have good birthdays, we arent dying in the streets.
I *thought* Id be somewhere there, I certainly didnt think Id be that low down?
How does someone who has internet, food, electricity, a car, a house, pets, healthcare etc rank that low?
Pregnant for the first-time?
