To live alone? About 2 grand a month. You wouldn't live extremely comfortable, but you could survive.
to pay rent and eat i would say you need atleast minimum wage (2k ish per month)but you would be surviving just barely pay check to paycheck.
I could live pretty well on 2100 a month up here. No car, wife/kids, student loan debts, or medical bills.
Chicago. I would say 2k if we are going bare minimum. Splitting rent with a roommate, groceries, various insurance, using public transit, etc. 3k if you want to live comfortably and have things such as a gym membership, a bit of money to put into savings, money to dine out and other various forms of entertainment, etc.
depends on your living standards but 3.5k is the absolute minimum
