What percentage of your monthly salary do you spend on clothes, footwear, and accessories?
Pre or post tax? Huge difference. I would estimate my pretax %age at about 5%.
Don't they say housing should be around 30% of your monthly income?
The convention for prime has been 28%. But the housing bubble has thrown these WAY WAY out of proportion.
By far my two largest "expenses" are taxes and savings. Together they represent about 80% of my budget.
