How much money and who needs it for a comfortable life is an individual question. For some, the subway and chicken with buckwheat are enough for complete happiness, others will even cry over a plate of risotto with black caviar.

Everyone has their own concept of prosperity – but some minimum threshold, beyond which not life, but poverty, already begins, can still be felt.

According to Rosstat, the average salary in Moscow for the first three months of 2022 increased to 146 thousand rubles. The figure looks quite decent, but we all know how it is considered: someone eats meat, someone eats cabbage, and together we eat cabbage rolls.

In order to understand how things are really going for the residents of the capital – visitors or indigenous people, we conducted an anonymous survey on the Woman.ru forum.

As it turned out, only a few manage to reach such figures: sometimes a much more modest 50 thousand rubles remain the ultimate dream.

What can you afford with such (and even less) money in Moscow, do you manage to save something, how to go on vacation, buy yourself cosmetics and provide for children – our readers told. We tell their stories.

My salary is 20 thousand + bonus from sales. As a result, an average of 45-50 thousand per month comes out. I have been working as a salesperson in a grocery store for a private individual for almost 5 years. I live alone, I rent a room.
