    How much spare money do you have each month? 19th Apr 17 at 6:10 PM

    I am interested to know how much money people have spare each month once they have paid for necessities such as rent/mortgage bills, food, fuel etc ? I am not sure if I am being greedy by allowing myself 300 a month to spend on myself this includes "fun/entertainment" money

    I just wanted to get some opinions really

    Thanks in advance

    2230 net income a month, 350 rent, 50 mobile, 50 on Amazon/Netflix/Spotify etc, 150 on food, 50 on random things.

    So maybe 1600 remaining, but I still live at home with my parents.

    You'd think by 26 I'd have flown the nest.
