We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in United States, they wrote...

"The cost of living in the United States varies depending on the city and state you live in. In general, living costs in the US are usually high and rising. Rent, transportation, and food expenses tend to make up the largest portion of monthly expenses in most parts of the country. Healthcare in the US can also be expensive, particularly if you do not have access to employer-sponsored insurance. Utility costs, such as electricity and water, also need to be taken into account when budgeting for the cost of living," said another expat in United States.
