    I said that it was a terrible area to live. I was joking. However, I did include Chesterfield in the bad list, so that is a positive.

    Yeah, that's true. Anywhere, away from London and the South East would be decent. With the exception of Luton, some areas of Birmingham, Bradford, Dewsbury, Chesterfield, Mosborough, Savile Town.
    What about Harrogate? That place is expensive

    Yup. I'm on about £32k at the moment - feels like a pretty 'decent' salary.

    Yep. I just read that 100K is decent. Considering it's higher than what 96-97% of Brits make, I'd say that's amazing. Decent is maybe x2 the median salary. Like maybe 45-50K. x4 times the median salary is too good to be true. You're more likely to get into Harvard than earn that kind of salary in the UK.

    Starting Salary - 25k+ (actually anything above £0 is a good start with this job market)

    By the age of 50 - at least 80-90k.

    It also depends on your background, if you come from a rich family and your parents buy you a house you can live your life rent/mortgage free in which case you could get by with far less.

    I'm very similar in terms of what I'm on now and where I'd like to be in the future. I'd like to be on above 60k a while before I'm 40 but it's relatively rare in the sector I'm currently in so it depends on whether I move around to compensate for this (very likely).

    Depends massively on the sector and your age. And what you prioritize/care about in your work. Overall would agree with a few people about that 60/70k is 'decent' but that would be for a bit later on in your career rather than 20s.
    Totally agree. I should realistically reach 60K a fair bit before 40, but in any case, 60 is something I'd be happy with I think... By retirement I'd like plenty in terms of shares, a good pension and a base of around 75-85K which is achievable. Time will tell!
