this depends on a lot of things

if you don't want to date/get gf you can save a lot by living in Jersey City with roommates, you'd save the city income tax, pretty close to NYC by PATH.

I did this for like a year and a half. Fucking miserable, but I saved a lot of money

You could spend way less than that if you're really looking to save money.

The subway goes to all of Harlem and much of Queens. People who make 215k generally don't live in the parts of Queens far from the subway.

You could save $10k a month if you really tried. However, that's assuming roommates and basically acting as if you make $50k a yr.

Uh your take home is $11k+ a month after taxes with that salary. You cannot save $10k unless your housing is free and even then you'd have $2k in expenses.

*the normal life of someone who makes $50k per year.

Your budget would have you spending only $2k per month. Assuming rent with roommate is $1,500, that leaves only $500 for food, entertainment, travel, health care, utilities, etc.

Saving $6k per month would be really good. $8k is not really possible without living like a total pauper.
