    So salary = 3x rent is pretty common, huh? That sounds tough.

    Well, I was thinking about salary = 3x cost of living. Tripling rent alone should be more reasonable.

    Nampa, ID

    I rent

    800/month for a 3 bedroom 2 bath.

    Bills flex anywhere between 120 to 250 monthly. (winter just sucks down the electricity)

    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    It's usually something like 1/3 of your gross monthly income.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    ^ Exactly. 3x the cost of living would be a grueling amount unless you lived very meagerly. 3x your rent is about what you ought to make to comfortably afford your place.. So cuts in hours, etc, won't affect your payments.
