    So for those who makes over 100K, after tax and retirement savings, how much do you actually bring home? I don't make nearly as much as that, tax and my 401a eats up 1/3 of my income. I don't feel like I am making as much as it appears on paper.

    I drive an hour to and an hour from work depending on traffic. I live in MD started out making 72k now up to 80k however after taxes state/federal am bringing home 1850 every 2 weeks, our house cost 450k so payments are 2700 per month on mortgage alone. I'm interested in hearing more about your commute and living conditions out there. Do you like it?
    I like it very much. I live in a wonderful, safe rural area with fantastic schools. The tiny school my kids go to has created a program for gifted children. They actually only go to their school 3 days a week and the other two are bussed to the closest state university campus (a two year branch of the state university system). My 12 year old is learning calculus, robotics, litature, and Chinese. If they stay in the program they will graduate at age 17 with 60-70 college credits (paid for by the school district) and guarenteed admission to the state's flagship university.
    We have 43 acers with fields, woods and a creek. We have a 4 bedroom, 2 bath house that was 12 years old when we bought it in 2007. My mortgage payment in a little under $800/month. Our neighbors are wonderful and all look out for each other. Our town has a lot going for it for such a small place. Superb boy & girl scout troops, 4-H, a variety of school sports. We are close enough to a large city to go there for date night, concerts, etc. Plus there is a international airport there. I have a longer commute than you, but not much more, and since I work nights, no traffic.
    It's not for everyone. I used to be a farmer and my family's idea of fun is camping, hunting and fishing. We raise pigs, chickens, cattle and a garden.
    No reason why we couldn't live in the city, or one of the near cities, but we are not city people.
    My co-workers who live and raise their families in the city are always telling what great place it is for raising a family.

    The same is true for most of us. However since there is so much variabiliety in deductions from person to person I think the only way to accuratly measure is to look at gross (pre tax). Then we each have an idea of what our deductions for 401K, health care, taxes, etc are.

    Shhh stop telling people about MN. It's the only good thing about this place lol (transplant from elsewhere, winter stinks, but the TC is much better than way up north where I was at so I'm finally coming to terms with it).

    OK but the winters are long, VERY cold and there is a lot of snow. I love it but don't say you weren't warned.

    I may have to reconsider my previous assessment

    I'm about to start a clinic position at $51/hour. I have been licensed since June 2014. However, the cost of living where I am is pretty high as well (NorCal).
