There are interns earning more than you, albeit without the work life balance.

If you want work-life, then cannot be too ambitious already.

9k isnít low persay, I feel itís very good, but you can continue to work towards 20k like other people here.

At the age of 40, earning 15 to 20k is not bad at all I would say. It all depends on the place where are you living and how much I spend every month, your financial education and so on. Some people don't even imagine how much money you can save by changing some habits, or doing other things differently. For example, you save very much money every month, on the energy bills, if you get a dual fuel deal, like it's shown in this guide https://www.simplyswitch.com/energy/guides/understanding-dual-fuel-deals/. This is only one example, but there are way more tips which can improve your lifestyle by changing small things.

Anyone here caught covid yet? Seems like delta variant running amok in Singapore. If give you a choice, get covid and risk death but you get $1 million dollars, versus no covid but only $100,000, which one will you guys choose?

Anything less than $50k per month would be mediocre by Chok Tong's standards.

Not sure how ppl survive with $10k per month. Might not even be enough for McLaren installment every month.

How do you survive with only 50k a month?

25F

Take home: $4700
Savings/investments: $2150
Monthly expenses: $2550
- Rent $800
- Insurance $350
- Food $650
- Transport $150
- Household $100
- Other $400 (E.g. gift, entertainment, health, beauty, clothing, bills etc)

I really should lower my food expenses. Currently order food delivery most weekdays as I live alone and don't feel comfortable cooking in landlord's kitchen.

You should lower the $400 spending. Spending on food is alright, one day $20 for all meals on average.

29F

$4100 take home
