This seems like a perspective issue. If you grew up in a home where your mom didn't work and your dad had a simple 50k/yr job, you would get accustomed to a simpler/cheaper lifestyle than a kid whose parents both worked and made 200k+.

FWIW my numbers out of school were almost identical to yours so I get where you're coming from. My first apartment was also 1.2k/mo in the suburbs but I also didn't have much of a social life so saving a few thousand every month built up quickly. It starts to snowball once you get into compounding interest.

You’re like my ex, makes me think you might be a bitch in fact as well. Women are terrible with money and never look at their finances in depth to figure out how to save their own skin when in deep.

Anyone believing in COVID is a retard that deserves to die from it as rare as that is. Ex was a nurse and the people being wiped out from it are old people in hospitals and nursing homes because NIGGER CNA’s get it and spread it around without giving a fuck. There’s also the fact they DONT test like they’re supposed to and many, including my ex’s last job wanted her to come back after three days from testing positive because they were short staffed.

I live in a decent Milwaukee Suburb between the river and lake michigan, a mile from downtown. My GF and I rent the top floor from a friend of mine for a total of $600/mo all utilities included.

I make 95k/year and put 20% towards my 401k and still have plenty to actively invest. Granted paying 300/mo is a lot better than 1200/mo, but still.

People in the larger cities usually get paid more, simple as.
I'm guessing the take home pay after their taxes and cost of living is fairly similar to someone in less expensive cities.
I lived in San Jose for a short time, was pretty amazed by how people with such high paying jobs weren't able to afford any breathing room. Shit sucks. Your pay scales with the cost of living of the area (if you have a genuine reason to be there, if you're a McDonalds cook in SF you're asking for trouble).
Though in fairness saving 30k a year in your 20's is pretty good, provided you invest it properly. You should probably look into buying a house instead of renting, so that money doesn't get sucked into a black hole and instead can be added to you home equity.

Then they said late stage capitalism was occurring during the first world war. It never happened.

Then they said late stage capitalism was occurring during the great depression. It never happened.

Then they said late stage capitalism was during WW2. It never happened.

Then they said late stage capitalism was during the post-WW2 Soviet world. It never happened

Then they said late stage capitalism was happening during the 1960 crisis. It never happened.

Then they said late stage capitalism during the 70s fuel crisis. It never happened.

Then they said late stage capitalism was during the early 80s. It never happened.

Then they said late stage capitalism was during the 90s. It never happened.

Then they said late stage capitalism was during the war on terror. It never happened.

Then they said late stage capitalism was during the 2008 recession. This inevitable collapse of capitalism that never happens. All socialism is a genetic disorder.

No because capitalism/communism is a retarded dichotomy that simplistic low IQ people fall for.
There are simply free markets vs government intervention. Any country can have any degree of both, it's complicated.
Central banking(an institution which communists support and has printed money to give to the working class) in america has resulted in massive inflation, malinvestment, debt and poverty.
This is why the working class is poor. If we had free banking instead, we would see FALLING PRICES, deflation, our wages would constantly gain value, our savings would constantly gain value etc.

like every other economic theory it works great in a vacuum, the problem as always is human behavior. it every person was hyperrational and optimally invested their capital as soon as they received some liquid usd, the economy would be way more efficient and the standard of living at rough parity for most everyone. the problem isn’t just dumb people but predatory actors who tolerate systemic inefficiencies because it gets them more wealth comparatively, and who manipulate government to perpetuate those problems. Not the least of which is keeping people retarded and uneducated.

Your problem is that you are spoiled and your standard of living is higher than others. As you said, you could live on less but that lifestyle would make you depressed. Other people are happy to eat 20c noodles every day.

You have 2 options: increase your income, or learn to be a cheapskate like everyone else.

I fell into debt on a 200k income, because I couldn’t cut my spending habits. The problem lies in your mentality, not your income.

I live on about $2.5K a month in San Francisco without roommates in a decent area (Telegraph Hill).

How you ask? Well, I find cheap units on Airbnb. I got a decent place on Airbnb for $1600/mo during the pandemic. Booked 6 months lmao. Before that I was living in a slightly worse area (Nob Hill) for $1750/mo.

Since I'm centrally located and work in the Financial District, I don't need a car. So, I spend about $700-900 average a month on other shit. Like food, eating out, transport, nightclubs, electronics, books, doctor visits, etc...

If I really Jewed it, I could probably live on $2200 a month without roommates, or $1000 a month with a roommate. I could easily get $1200 minimum to share this place.

That is a question that plague us all.

I live with my parents in a very expensive region in the US. Finally got a good stable job at 40k, but with me hitting my numbers I reasonably make 60k. I "waste" about $300 on myself each year, that covers eating out, video games, all non-essentials, etc... Everything else goes to Taxes, Roth 401K, and Home purchase savings account.

I do the numbers each month and they worry me. I got a projected monthly home buying power of ~$450, but even the cheap stuff I look at goes for ~$1200 per month, and I don't have good figures on utilities bills (although I am very frugal). I am pretty sure I could make it work, but it would be difficult. Move out deadline is in a year or two, when parents retire to Florida. Could easily do it, if I stopped maxing out my Roth 401k, but I got only myself in the future so that is last resort. Hoping I get a roommate for my new house as even at charging 85% market rate would work out fine, just don't want someone trashing me or building. Still a lot of details to workout.

People see me squirrel every dollar away and working endless over time. Going to break the $100k mark soon and everyone is questioning my sanity and mental state. I try to explain two simple things to them so they hopefully stop bugging me. One, buying a home is expensive so I need all the money I can because the bigger the loan the more I lose. Second, I had had horrible mental health issues as a kid and been homeless for 2 months, relatively speaking this level of stress even with COVID-19 is just an annoyance to me and if it got too bad I have robust fail safes from years of real depression in place so I am not worried about that.

That likely doesn't answer your question, but that is how I am doing it. I also managed to cut a notable amount of spending by changing my hobbies. I specifically went out and found hobbies that cost next to nothing and I make no delusions these new projects of mine will be profitable.

full of shit dude, OP's 100% correct
I make around $60k which is decent for my area, renting a 1bedroom apartment is around $950/mo, all my utility bills, phone, internet, electricity, plus food (I cook 100% at home, don't eat junkfood ever), it basically takes up like 85%+ of my income altogether. I have no vices either, I don't drink, I don't do any drugs, hell I quit drinking coffee a year ago. I only drink water/tea, all my meals I cook at home. I barely have any hobbies and the ones I do have are cheap/free (outdoors shit mostly, camping/hiking/kayaking), and I pirate all my at-home entertainment like movies/tv/music, have zero tv/movie subscriptions, etc.

It's impossible to get very far ahead. Yea, I can save, like $3-5k/year if I'm lucky, and that's if I have no emergencies or unexpected costs.

So what, I'm gonna work 10 years to save $30k? Surely that's not the path to making it

sounds like your problem is just that you haven't had enough time to accumulate savings, and that's being countered by wanting/needing things that people don't have when they're just getting started in life. it will take several years before you feel like you're making progress, but just stick to it. one thing to keep in mind is that it's fine to spend money on things that will last a long time, especially a lifetime (i.e. good cutlery), but don't spend much on consumables or made-in-china tier trash.

I'm just saying. Be realistic. There are too many rich people now. It's not like the old days when there was a tiny number of wealthy people in the world.

There are literally millions of millionaires in the top 10 most prosperous countries. The rich will never allow the system to have any significant change.

Hell, just look at the great recession. Poorfags got BTFO and the government told them "you're on your own" meanwhile the rich got richer throughout the entirety of the "great recession". The only people who lost their money and jobs were middle class and lower class wagecucks. Nothing happened to you if you were in the 1%.
