What do you think is the least you need to make (after taxes) to just make it in life and be happy? List the state would live in?

If you had to calculate the least you would need to make it life and be happy how much would it be per year? How did you come up with the amount? Which state would you need to live in to get by on that little?

  • $17,000 in CA with up to two kids. You would get around $4,700 earned income credit tax return too. Just divide it up evenly among the months throughout the year. You could also get $570 per month in food stamps. So if you are at that amount, you actually have more than the person making $30,000 but work less and get to enjoy your free time with your family more. :)

  • I'm living on minimum wage right now and I'm fine. I don't plan on staying this way, but all it takes to be comfortable is being frugal, thrifty, and having realistic expectations.

    Oh, but you can't have a family (or get girlfriend) on minimum wage. Luckily I'm enjoying being single right now.
