In My Experience: Priced Out

As part of KQED's Priced Out series, which explores the Bay Area's high cost of living, we would like to hear from people who manage to stay afloat here on an annual income of less than $33,000.* We want to know, how do you afford living in one of the most expensive places in the country? How do you make it work?

*$33,298 is the average California Poverty Measure threshold for a family of four (two adults and two children) in the nine Bay Area counties. For more on the California Poverty Measure visit: http://www.ppic.org/main/publication.asp?i=1070.
