    I don't think that's absurd at all. I just checked mine and it's $2200 - $2600 a month. Not including any fixed payments.

    I spent $160 on three drinks in NYC last weekend. I only had one of them. That was absurd.

    If you travel with a per firm and can expense your personal cc then no sweat.

    lol Japanese whiskey or something? I was hanging with my bro in NYC a couple of weekends ago and we had a few double vodka sodas at this bar and the bill was $150. If I am paying $150 for drinks, we all need to be blacked out.

    Each drink was only $20.

    Found out when we got the bill that there was a $35 cover per person. Bemelmans Bar in the Carlyle.

    You are definitely more frugal than most. I don't think I've had a CC bill under $2,000 in the past 9 years (and I definitely can't use a CC for my mortgage or car payments).

    What's left after mortgage and car? Do you eat out every meal? Even allotting $800 for food, that's still another $1200 of... ? I don't mean to derail the thread, I'm just trying to fathom how I would spend that much. I guess travel more? Or something?
    I know how to spell definitely.

    I mean, you can't fathom how people have bills other than mortgage, car and food?

    For one person for a month, rounding up:
    cell phone: $100
    cable/internet: $125
    car insurance: $50
    gas: $75 (?)
    pet insurance (they said they have a dog): $25
    water/sewer/electric/garbage: $250

    ...ok, so that's $625. Add $800 (!!) for food, and we're still only at $1425.

    Correct. No real way to get status other than flying.

    Do you not buy anything else? We buy things for our house, for ourselves, I eat out a lot for lunch at work, 2 cars worth of gas is a lot more than $75/mo, dogs typically cost a helluva lot more than $25/mo (at least on average for the year), I play a fair amount of golf, she makes jewelry, we go to the movies, etc etc.

    I think we can just leave it at you are more frugal than some people, haha.

    must be nice being a girl and never having to pay for anything, its minimum $50 a night anytime I go out anywhere, double if its a date. (Then once dating longer it gets split)

    seems like a weird argument. 100 a week in groceries. 75-100 a week restos/bars. 1500-2k isn't crazy at all if you put everything on one card.

    Travel, home repairs, furniture, birthday presents, charitable gifts, clothes, random shit at Target, and a whole lot more. Not all of that every month, but there is inevitably at least one relatively big (or just flat out big) expense per month. If I didn't spend at least $30,000 per year, my SkyMiles CC would be a whole lot less valuable (oh, and I wish my car insurance was only $50/month).

    If you're gonna be single, fit, and relatively fun and in your 30's, its a waste if ya don't settle down with someone pulling $200k/yr so ya don't gotta spend life so frugally.
