## How Much Rent Can I Afford on \$81K

You can afford to spend \$2,415 on rent each month.

### Monthly Expenses

The cost of living varies from state to state and family to family. \$80,500 may seem a lot for one family that lives in Mississippi, but it may not be much for a family that lives in New York where the cost of living is much higher. You should also make sure you factor in your monthly expenses and debts that you may have before deciding how much you should spend on rent. One should add up all the bills including credit cards, utilities, cell phones, transportation, loans, cable costs, insurance, and any other bills that you may have. Then subtract the total monthly expenses from your take home pay, which is your monthly salary after tax and other deductions.

Following is a table that shows you how much rent you can afford each month based on your monthy expenses if you make \$80,500 per year in pre-tax income.
