The way I see it is that the median lifestyle spending is based on a 180k income. (Median - many spend way more).

There's no way that 180k is the median salary. CMIIW?

Depends if your going according to what it says on taxes or what it says on CC application forms.

It is very telling when the front page as of the BP each week is about collection phone calls. The rest of it is how they got into debt.
Great line.

I'm not so sure of that. The people I know who make around 180k are sending all kids to sleep away camp/ bungalow colony, family trips to Israel etc. I don't think this is the norm, at least not yet...

Is their lifestyle based on a 180k income or is it based on a higher income?
Feelings don't care about your facts

Much higher. Family trip to ey is easy 10-25k...

Many people spend 50k + a year on just clothing!

One has got to wonder if the whole ruach by simchas was different in those days. Sometimes one wonders if the kidushim where the kids (and sometimes the adults) are attacking the food in hit and run fashion is just an outgrowth of the whole restaurant/parlor meeting buffet etc. scene in general that spills over to simchas.


I thought it was actually somewhat funny last time I made a shalom zachar there was a whole group of kids who had made early Shabbos knocking on the door (sans parents) at the beginning of the night meal to see if they could start eating the shalom zachar nosh. I guess that they made early Shabbos and assumed that we did, but I didn't even have a clue who most of them were.....
you're just lucky it wasn;t to polish off your booze, as has happened to many

With all the high standards of life in Lakewood, go to Gourmet Glatt right now and see what is going on. People are killing each other for a little free popcorn.
I just decided that 'Free' is very expensive.
(At least in Lakewood)

We've been through this before, but there is no way a 180k income can support all that.

Prospect vines area for eg. litteraly half the new homeowners are looking to rent out their purchase. There is no market.

Forclosures are bound to follow. Then the big collapse of the construction industry etc

I know someone who got a 3 bedroom 1.5 bath for 750. That's insane, a year ago it was 1150.
