Living Expenses

I was anticipating to spend about 1/3 of my wages of rent. I now seem to be coming to the conclusion that should I want to not live in a gang-infested shit hole, I may have to spend close to 1/2 of my wages on rent. Needless to say, I was less than impressed by this revelation.

What proportion* of your monthly earnings do you spend on rent?

Precise figures are not necessary, nor are they impressive. They'll probably just make you look like a* cock.

Re: Living Expenses

45%

Then again, I have a rather simple lifestyle; I rarely go out, I don't drink and my idea of really throwing away money is buying too much chocolate.

It's also because I'm a poor student who's too lazy to get a job.

Re: Living Expenses

1) That's a percentage, not a proportion. Although that is acceptable, and actually preferable.

2) Where do you live?

I live in the Netherlands.

Percentages are proportions.

Re: Living Expenses

Well, roughly half on average. The thing is, being a student my incomes fluctuate a lot (more during the summer, less during the rest of the year).

Re: Living Expenses

around here you can get a small terraced house for approx. £350 a month rent, although that is climbing as more people are starting to rent houses rather than buy

Re: Living Expenses

40%, rising to 50% when you include council tax (which you probably should, since it'll likely be higher the more rent you're paying). That was before my girlfriend moved in though, so it's down to about 25% until she leaves again.

Re: Living Expenses

Around 28% of my income is allocated as rent expenses. And I am lucky to rent cheap!
For most of my (studying) friends it is about 40-ish% they spend on rent.

Re: Living Expenses

almost exactly a third (after tax etc)
I'm living on my own in a not too shabby area as well.

It's what happens when you live in London unfortunately.

Re: Living Expenses

How violent exactly it is a "gang-infested shit hole" in the Uk? murder rate like 15/100k?


This would be the rate of a "great place to live" here in brazil, and im alive and well

Anyways, i saw this guy getting shot dead the other day... drug trafficking issues apparently.

Not so bad to live in a 40/100k murder rate country actually. Most people who die are criminals to begin with. Dunno if it is the same over there

well here mostly what happens is that innocent people get shot by the armed morons (although to be fair it is not exactly clear who said they could have guns, but, hey 'they've got em') who are protecting us (that is a quote) from something ... we're not sure what exactly ... but they've told our home secretary that what ever it is (apparently she isn't allowed to know for security reasons) they definitely protect us from it. Well in practice they are actually the only guns you see in Britain. But of course that is the way isn't it? I mean "there's no smoke without fire" and the flabby, corrupt, institutionally racist, piss ignorant, thick as two short planks, gits who join the force wouldn't have guns unless everyone did now would they? it's not like they pointlessly carry a large semi automatic rifle around a shopping precinct just because they found gcses a bit challenging now is it???

anyhoo that's how we see most brazillian people shot dead in public.

I suppose it's a bit different over here.
