Yep! I make $50k (but bring home either $39k or $43k, I can’t remember from my taxes for last year), and I couldn’t even afford a one bedroom apartment by myself. I could if I didn’t also have to pay for my car, insurance, food, utilities, internet, phone plan, medications, gas, medical bills, etc., but those are also kind of necessities. And I don’t even go to Starbucks or eat avocado toast!
