I make that much a month. Less even $580>Live with Parents
Saved tons of money
Going to Japan for a month.
Ticket to Japan about $700
AirBNB with friends $400 for a month renting whole apartment with 4 beds.
Kyoto AirBNB $100 for a week.
Traveling with Suica and other methods about $100
So $1600 for 1 month in Japan basics.
Just about everything is free to visit except museums and zoos say $100
Probably $50 but let's say $100
About $10~$30 a day for necessities such as food and drinks. Depending on how greedy you are but say $20 a day
So thats say $600
Let's say it's more expensive theres shit like buying souvenirs and whatnot.
So $2500 for a month in Japan.
In a year I make $7000 I save about 1/3 of my pay for well pleasure 1/3 goes to food and local shit and 1/3 goes to bills and shit.
So there you have it. How much do you spend on shit? Can you save 1/3 of your pay every month for a year? Does all you income vanish the moment you get it?
I have a feeling Americans have incredibly bad financial skills. The "need" to move out is a huge hit on your wallet and in totally unnecessary. I have a girlfriend and we fuck just fine. Then again my house was built 2 two families in mind.
