[ - ] I know we've talked about this like a million times but how much do you need to live a good UMC lifestyle in NYC? I think it's at least $700k. Which is totally nuts but there it is. And that's without a country house. Or anything fancy apartment wise. Just a decent 2-3 bdrm apt, private school, camp, sports for kids, gym, car/garage and around 3 decent (not outrageous) vacations a year (Xmas, spring break, summer). Plus save a little. 55 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Take home on $700K after taxes and health insurance is about $400k or $33k a month. Two in private school is 8K a month, mortgage and maintenance plus related expenses on a 2 mil place assuming you have a 1.5 mortgage is $10k a month, add another $3k a month in vacations, $10k a month in savings...not to mention food, sports, entertainment...you need more.

I have posted this before. I did the math: $350k for a couple to live well in NYC, not extravagantly, but very comfortable. Can afford many nice things, nice vacations, don't need to watch your budget daily and can save good amount for retirement. After this, add $200k HHI per kid for private school, nice UMC camps, ECs, vacations, clothes and childcare, $10k for 529. Yes this sounds crazy, but when you add up the tuition, extra housing, vacation costs, foods, clothes, ipads, soccer travel team, tutor, nanny, etc, it does add up to $120k after tax per child.

Sounds nuts, but true. People who scream in disagreement have not done the math. If you do good zoned public school, good ECs but private figure skating coach, no expensive summer camps, no Hamptons rental, you can live well (not rich) with $400k a year. [ Reply | More ]

2 in public vs private you are saving $100k a yr after tax. Parking you save $8k a year. Brooklyn housing vs. Manhattan you're probably saving $50k a year. So you can have $300k less HHI a yr in BK and have the same lifestyle as your Manhattan twin family who send kids to private. $400k should be very comfortably UMC in BK. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Have you ever confided in your in-laws something very personal about DH only to find out they told DH's siblings? MIL stated I could trust her to keep anything between us confidential. Then she told SIL who in turn called DH and emailed me schooling me about what to do. Furious. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
