[Post 127] Living On $32K A Year In Spokane, Washington | Millennial Money

Summary:Graham Zickefoose, 26, lives in Spokane, Washington and earns $32,000 a year as a graduate student at Eastern Washington University. Graham is pursuing a master's degree in urban and regional planning and is expected to graduate in the spring of 2023. He has a part time job as a city planning assistant at the city hall offices in Spokane. This is an installment of CNBC Make It's Millennial Money series, which profiles people across the globe and details how they earn, spend and save their money.

Personal Thoughts:Despite the fact that he was on scholarship, I think he did well in surviving on $32,000 (approximately SGD45,000) in scholarship stipend and work payment, among other things. Above is a screenshot of his budget, which is pretty low except for the food expenses, which are probably from paying for and going out on his date with his girlfriend, as mentioned in the video. He also does not have a credit card, only a debit card or a checking account, and he keeps track of his spending. Tithe refers to his monthly contributions to the church, which amount to about 10% of his total income.
