I make $120k/year
Live in bay area
Found an apt that I like for $2k/month
This feels like a huge amount of money.
I REALLY wanna have my own apartment, been sharing room then sharing house for a long ass time and I wanna have my own shit for once.

How can I justify this $2k/month cost?
It's 20% of my income basically.

Job's pretty stable
Actually have recruiter trying to steal me away for a bigger offer but like current job
>>
Bay area is expensive. Don't expect to find much cheaper. I'm in the northbay.
>>
fuckin please, out of 120k that ain't much. maybe take up some hobbies and get laid. a decent place to live is good for you.
>>
>>18363882
yeah this.

%20 of income is not that bad either no matter what your income level.

just make sure you also on the way to retirement savings in your plans.

i don't think any further justification is needed unless you're a money fuck-up somewhere else in your life.

>>18363889
Thanks
I have $10k savings rn
Also, I try to live super frugally so spending $2k seems almost unjustifiable to me..
>>
>>18363899
good luck on your obedient wife. get a shiba inu.

>2k doesn't seem frugal to me
that's capitalism
>>
>>18363899
>>18363911
or get a basset hound. those things are unreal

>>18363911
whoa dude how'd you know I'm getting a shiba doggo?

>>18363899

It costs money to live, autism bro. You don't want to pay 2k+ for an apartment? Then move to Chicago or somewhere else and take a paycut then pay 1k for an apartment.

>>18363955
lesson learned
getting a 2k/mo apt ;)

>you, a fidget spinner
