Living well is pretty general because it's defined differently by different people. I think as cities go, SA is pretty user friendly and takes a lot less $$ to be comfortable here than with some other major cities.

It really depends on one's own definition of living "well." I have a family of four, and we live well on about 70K a year. Having said that, we have a brand new (10 month old) house, a new truck, a fairly new (2007) car, etc. We could live "well' on less income if we bought a smaller house, and didn't buy a new truck when our other car was paid off. It is all relative.

For me, by myself, to pay off all my student loans, car payment, credit cards, buy a house (in a desirable area), and then not feel overly extravagant...50-60,000. ..maybe 70,000.

what was the view option for anyhow?

and this is a silly poll. Comfortable is not even close to a concrete term and open to way too much interpretation.
