Oops, I voted second fifth, when it should be middle fifth. I forgot to factor in the raise I got on Friday.

I think second though my husbands last promotion probably pushed us into the middle. I haven't done the math yet.<br><br>

i think it's a not so much how much you earn but how much you spend. I used to be in the 4th and now I'm in the 2nd and my lifestyle is pretty much the same. i barter now for services, that's the only difference.

well, i do personal yoga instruction for my esthetitan(sp) and massage therapist, and recently i paid a 300 dollar lawyer's fee with personal training sessions.<br><br>
I've traded for tax preperation, haircuts, and chiropractic,and tattoos, and i trade Thai massage with my friend Jeremy for handyman work around my house.<br><br><br><br>
before I got too busy, I did 4-6hours of work a week at my HFS for a total grocery discount- 25%. I may do that again.

I'm in the middle but both my DH and I are still in school so I imagine that will change at some point. I didn't include the 15,000 that's credited to my university either. My stipends fluctuate as well through out the year.

<span style="color:#008000;">I work in a restaurant, and am currently repaying 4 student loans. Pretty easy to guess.</span>
