I spend approx' 80% or so, you know, bills, food, phone, beer, entertainment etc and Visas etc. Impossible to save really, on this income. In Guangzhou, I earned triple what I earn now, spent the same as what I earn now, without frills like bars etc (the missus wouldn't let me), and saved the rest.

I'm like kiwi - though we already knew that from another thread where I said how some of of foreigners are poor average folks just like everyone else.
I spend most of my income on rent, bills, food, transportation, phone/internet, visas, and some small entertainment or on my son.

I don't buy expensive clothes or other things.
I don't have a car.

Besides rent and bills, the most expensive thing I buy shopping is some expensive food for my son (meat, cheese, chocolate, some western snacks) and I let him choose a western-style restaurant once a week so he doesn't go crazy like a caged lion. He doesn't like chinese food.

If it was just me I'd live a lot cheaper.
I am not rich.  :L
