Who here has a low salary in the bay area? How low? Are you living comfortably enough? How do you do it? Just transitioned to a non profit I'm excited about but took a huge pay cut.

TC: 62500 9YOE live in SF

    160k combined is fine if you are young and unmarried. Not enough to put down roots and start having kids, but that might not be on the radar yet or at all

    No way I’d live here on that salary. What’s your rent? Maybe if you’re in a dual income household it’s ok.
