-NO CHILD

We survive by eating cheaply or at restaurants when on deals and buying things on offer.

My parents were extremely generous too (gave a few hundred grand ang pow when married). After buying home and stuff we find surviving tough with our income since we try to save and invest some of it too.

So honestly speaking, from my experience anyways, $7k+7k (assuming your wife too) not numerically possible to survive independently, especially with a child.
Just to clarify, when we bought our EC some years ago, it was cheaper and costs less than some BTOs today. So the comparison to OPs situation is still valid IMHO.

- afford a car (either first/second hand) with petrol/carpark and
- have a kid and
- support parents through monthly allowance
and still have some remaining to save & invest.

Finding it difficult. Hoping some peer can shed some light on how they manage their finance.
Why is it difficult?
They did it with loan. All sorts of loan car loan, hdb loan, credit card loans,personal loan etc.
Nothing difficult about taking multiple loans

Maybe that's why he's asking? Perhaps he wants to do it without taking loans - which should be avoided as far as possible (maybe except for the home which is a necessary evil).
