    It's sort of a silly question because everyone needs a different amount to live on. Some have house payments some don't. Some have families some don't. Some live with their parents and don't have any expenses. Right now my family requires somewhere in the neighborhood of $4400 a month to live how I like, so that wouldn't work for me.
