Default How much do you make annually?

The cost of cards is something we all consider differently. Some guys have collections that I cant imagine. This is the internet, I understand.... Be honest. 60k here in rural new york....just doesnt seem like enough in this hobby . 26 years old with ZERO debt other than my mortgage and truck payment.

I make about 38k/yr at my current job. I live in KY so with the cost of living its not that bad. I enjoy my job, so that goes a long way as well.

I'll admit, I'm 17, but I am in the process of getting a job at a local restaurant in Tybee Beach GA to go towards my PC and a bit saved for after University.

Location is 95% of it. I live in Florida, and if I relocated to the same position I am in to a NJ store, I would be making $15,000 more a year, but would not have as much free spending money, nor as nice a home as I do now.

100k give or take a little each year. I run B.E. and 301 marion shovels at a coal mine here in wyoming. Cards are still spendy for me because of all the other payments I have, 2 new trucks, house, bike plus I have 2 kids and a wife that loves to shop.

Currently $50k/yr. My job is relocating to Baltimore sometime in the spring and they want me to go and have offered me $75k/yr. Cost of living is 33% more in Baltimore than Indy, so they've made that up and then some, which is nice.

SO, anyone know of good places/apts to live in in Baltimore??? And, yes I plan to rep my Colts stuff when I go out and watch games on Sunday next year

I make pretty close to you and living in Hawaii isnt cheap either my house cost over 500k and thats for 3 bedrooms. You have to incorporate where you live also not just what people make. If we lived where my wife is from we could rent 3 bedroom houses for less then $500 a month.

According to my employer (the gov) I made 72k, but I feel like I get home with half that.

You get taxed (aka - the shaft) from your own employer....is that twice as aggravating? lol

I don't work for the government.. But it feels the same way when you work in sports. The taxes and bills I pay are absolutely ridiculous!

Just curious as to why the OP topped the scale at $85k? I assume a lot of people here make significantly more than that.

Smart man. I'd gladly pay $15k a year to never have to live in New Jersey
