Experienced mustachian budgets
« on: November 17, 2017, 11:22:07 PM »
Could we compile a thread with monthly or annual budgets from experienced mustachians, or is there already one like this?  Maybe including number of people and ages in the household, and a state or region?  It would be very helpful for newbies and struggling mustachians to have as a reference to compare to, and goals to shoot for.

Your best option is to post a case study with your own budget. Individual budgets are going to reflect individual priorities, as well as local COL.

That is a great way to fine tune an individual budget, and I have done that I need the past.  For myself, I'm mostly looking to see what good budgets look like in various parts of the country, to have more information to mull over when considering a future relocation.

Links to a few calculators that may help your cause OP.  I've moved around quite a bit.  These can help, at the very least give you points of comparison.  The last is better for international.
