Just a note to Bas, I will be living in the SF bay area on less than 5000 per 6 weeks.
Supporting a wife and 2 kids, though?
My wife and I have one child. We will have a dual income (same amount), but that means she can't stay at home and we need daycare, which is like having a second rent. If my wife didn't work and we didn't have to pay for child care, we could certainly do it, all the while living in a decent place too.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying he is lying, but it is doable. As moob said, it depends on the lifestyle. In Toronto, my wife and I were having no problems raising our son on a family income of 34k (that is about 1400 a month each) all the while living a decent life. It's not a life I wish to live forever, but we never had to worry about paying bills or buying food or the quality of our food/living conditions. This is why I don't understand how people making six figures could be struggling in life, other than the fact that they are really poor at managing money.
Anyhow, I didn't want to digress so I will say that the article definitely says a lot about both Kimbo and Bas. I am leaning on the side of Bas right now.
