The Money Thing (Again) Poll.

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Not sure what you’re getting at? I’m not supporting anyone financially anymore.

I live in the UK in a very expensive city in the south but my rent is £500 a month for a one bed flat (decent size and location thank the lord almighty) and all I have to pay otherwise is electricity and fuel for the body. Could probably live on £700 a month easy.

Working now and earning a fair bit more than £700 pcm after tax :Yahoo!:

I ran a similar poll a few years ago on TOF, and if I recall correctly,...wait a minute.

Sept 2015
1. Less than $500.........3............6%
2. $500 - $1000...........14...........27%
3. $1000 - $1500.........11............21%
4. $1500 - $2000..........6............12%
5. $2000 - $3000..........6............12%
6. $3000 - $4000..........5............10%
7. $4000 - $5000..........6............12%
8. More than $5000......1.............2%

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

How does someone spend over 10,000 a month do they rent a big house and have a harem?
As a past example from my own experience - 3 bed apartment in Central Mansions - $4.5k per month, 2 kids in ISPP $3.5k per month so you are already at $8k per month and can easily top $10k with other normal costs.

That is what I spent but not what it cost me as $3.5k of housing was covered by company and 80% of schooling was also covered.

Not difficult to spend big money especially if schooling at one of the top schools for several kids.

Now on a much more modest expenditure
