    I own an ecommerce site that mainly target UK and UK customers. Some customers keep nagging over couple of dollars and there are others who don't mind spending hundreds of dollars without a question.

    So, wondering over here,

    $100 or 200 a day- Good Earnings if you are in US or UK? ( if you are with family)

    Someone residing in US or UK may answer this question better.

    P.S--

    Based on the replies so far, I am assuming that $500 a day for someone with family would be a nice and comfortable living in US or UK if not a luxurious one and for $1000 a day somewhat luxurious living. Correct me if you feel like doing so. Thanks!

    Gas/Elec - $160 per month depending on consumption
    Transport/Car/Petrol/Insurance - $330

    Then you have State/Fed tax. Fed tax is 25% of earnings.

    Pretty much the same in India. $1000 a month is considered a good salary. I am not quite sure about the doctor's pay over here but they earn way more than what you have stated (In India)

    yeah i just told you about government employed doctors' or those who work for ngo but those who have their own private clinics they earn way more than even 30k a day.. (some charg abt 500 to 1k pkr per patient). Btw its quite same in pak and india but as every one knw india is for more better than pak in economy so things are quite expencive here in pak.

    P.S baht acha laga ek desi friend se mil k :)

    Holy shit at the cheap rent prices. I am paying $2200 and I am not even in that nice of a house. I am waterfront, but it more like muddy, 2 feet deep shit water front... Cant even get a boat to my dock the water is so shallow.


    And comfortable living changes as you make more money.

    I was good at $200 a day, but then I started spending more. Then $300, $400 etc. I think the average person in the US could live off of $100-$150 a day and be quite comfortable. All depends in area, what your use too and what you do of course.

    You guys are lucky dogs ... if i thought I could live in a good place with low on crime, good internet speed and free from government hassles I would relocate.

    Where can I score this for $1K a month? Bali, Singapore, Indonesia
