    From the Sex in the City, how much money would Carrie Bradshaw really need to make, per month, to support her lifestyle, as portrayed in the program? Say Carrie lived in a rent controlled apartment, has no car or car insurance, has minimal health insurance, save minimal towards retirement, and saves no money. Then, how much money would she need to make for her cost of living, and to support her lunching-fashion-drinking life?

    Dont forget she sold a book which she got a nice check for.
    And most night when she goes out, she doesnt pay for drinks, they are bought for her. And the girls probably take turns paying for lunch. And its not like they go to really lavish places all the time. She also has some friends in high fashion which im pretty sure she gets free/promo stuff from.And she has Mr. Big. He is $$$$$$$. And that probably helps her out too.

    Hmm good question. With her rent controlled apartment and just going out to eat and some drinks, she really wouldn't need a lot. MAYBE $50,000 a year. Which is NOTHING in New York but if she is paying practically nothing on rent and bills and going out to eat then she wouldn't need that much. Now her fashion though, that's a whole other story. She said in one episode that she spent $40,000 a year on SHOES alone. So factor in her clothes as well. I would say she needs to make about $130,000 a year :)
