Guidelines I've been given by people I trust say 30-36% of your income. But if I followed that guideline, my rent would go up by 150% almost... I'm just wondering if the place I have now is an insane deal I stumbled upon, or if I've been living beneath my means...

0% currently, I live with my Dad, but when I lived with my ex my "share" was roughly 30% of my income then (never mind i usually paid some or all of her share). As for finding a place on my own for 30% of my current pay, thats not gonna happen, I have higher standards of living than whats available in that range.

Right now where I am living, it's effin' expensive area which sucks, no real cheap places around here... anyway I'm paying roughly 42% and it's a dive, however if you take where you live into consideration it will usually make more sense.... for example if I were to move to Windsor, downtown, which I have been checking out hoping to move out there, I would only be paying 15% or less of my income...
