    DH is earning way more now than when we got married however I don't think we are saving more.... I think the more you earn the more you spend?? When earning less money you make a conscious effort to save but with more money you think Owell we can afford it??

    i don't think there is a magic number? I we are programmed to want more or achieve better?? I do agree Sydney is ridiculous expensive

    200k/year would be ideal?

    Right now we comfortably live off what would be $40,000 a year. To live in Sydney, well plain and simple, we would never be able to. Our earning capacity doesn't come close to what is required.

    I was happiest when I earnt the least. You make do with what you have.

    I would guess around the 150k mark to 'get by' with extras. As pp have said it depends on your debt levels. Throw a few cc in there and you'd struggle on 150 while trying to pay them off.

    I kind of agree with the $100k+ income to get by in Sydney by just doing simple Maths. Ridiculous! Only a few can make this amount. Only few jobs will offer this amount. Does this mean the rest are struggling? If struggling, how do you cope? What are the tricks?

    100k is easy if you are both working.

    $185k a year and living just comfortably with mortgage 2 cars and daycare 2 days a week. In Perth things are just stupid in the way of prices. I don't know how people do it in a single income.

    My husband and I have lived off 20-30k for the last three years (both full time students who work part time too). We have a 20month old. We're not rolling in it but definitely comfortable. It's only for a limited time. I think it's about expectations.
