    What, to you, in terms of yearly combined household income, would classify you as rich?

    I know it varies by region and so on and I'm not claiming I'm rich by ny means.

    For me, if you and your spouse make I'm gonna say 300k a year, then you are probably 'rich'.

    300k sounds about right for my state (Kentucky)...I'm certain that's more middle to upper middle class on certain parts of the coasts.

    I'm talking about liquid.
    Rich enough to have your own jet.
    Rich enough not to waste time.
    Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy.
    A player.
    Or nothing. :coffee:

    300k is super rich for KY. :jj:

    That's like 1.5 million a year in nice parts of Cali or NYC.

    You are right, probably didn't title the thread well. You aren't rich if you make 300 and spend 350....but just for the purposes of the thread, if you have to base being 'rich' off your annual income...

    That's why I confirmed that the OP's estimate would be rich around this neck of the woods.

    I could have a really cool life in Lexington on 300k a year. Nice house, nice neighborhood, enough money to travel anywhere, some interesting "luxury"-type items(like a few pieces of fine art). I'd be satisfied, that's for certain. :up:
