I don't know about you guys, but I actually measured every dollar I earned/spent last year.
Then I took all of my expenses and categorized them into their tax rates.
Add it all up, and include mandatory fees (health insurance, car insurance, mortgage insurance, things I can't get away without paying...) and it
comes to about 50% of my pre-tax income
I can't afford much more, sooner or later I'll be too broke to tread water.
