    To sit back and know you would never financially struggle again?  And approx. how old are you?


    ps- it's cool to be greedy in this thread.

    I thought they had figured out it was $75,000 a year.

    So basically, enough that I could invest it and make $75,000 a year off interest and dividends would be good, however much that is.

    I'm roughly 30, ballpark.

    More is always good but I have enough (about what Eric suggests but as income, not interest).  But there is still retirement and all it would take is a bit of cancer or serious physical trauma and I would be in trouble.

    I think the best way to express it would be whenever a bar tab needed to be paid, there was always enough in the wallet

    and whenever a bill needed to be paid there was enough in the checking account

    and when the vacations rolled around the credit card was always accepted.

    Schedule me for permanent vacation

    12,000€ a year would do me fine! I was happy when I was taking home 900 a month.

    12,000 EUR = 15,771.72 USD

    I am 59.

    I live frugally, however, for me, it would be enough so that I could do my food shopping in local stores not supermarkets. Everything would be organic and naturally sourced. I could afford two holidays a year (each lasting for at least two weeks)I could buy a new, electric car. I would always have savings and I could afford eco-clothing. Oh, and I would definitely have a property in South west wales, Devon or Cornwall. I have no idea how much I would need to earn annually for this. smile

    Oh, I could certainly live "comfortably" off about $1500/mo. ($18,000/yr), but with my lifestyle I'd definitely require more for it to be enough, haha. I put a lot of my money into entertainment (concerts, road trips and vacations, video games, gifts for others, etc.) and whatnot, so... perhaps I could live comfortably off $65,000/year? Assuming I stay child free smile  Doesn't mean I'd like even more money though! tongue

    I'm 18, and my ideas of personal finance are pretty skewered at the moment, haha. I could probably be fine on much less, but I like to play it safe... I bring a $10 bill into stores to buy just a candy bar in case taxes went up wink

      15 million for you, Kimberly...absolutely...a Bentley...without hesitation...a hot bet, no need to worry, I'm your guy...(and your hot driver too)...

      In fact, not only will I get you the 15 mil, make the deal on that castle in Ireland (not to mention a villa somewhere warm too), build you that custom Bentley - the best in the land, as well as be your butler, your driver, your bodyguard, and write the next best bible for you....but I also will stand in the rain, up to any storm, be that which you'll need for the rest of your you out of new boobies which you certainly do not need...

      Many b's indeed...I'm not bbnix for nothing, you know...

      And oh, I just turned 55, had the best birthday of my life, am the strongest physically of my life (riding my bike many miles per day), and at the epitome of my education and experience, but I am also loved and protected by the most incredible woman who has ever lived or will ever live...

    When someone posed that question to John D. Rockefeller his response was "Just a little bit more."
