A recent survey had people name the top signs you're living the "modern" American dream. It's not exactly clear what that MEANS, but they posted a list of the top answers...
There are a few big ones, like owning a $40,000 car and having at least $35,000 in savings. But here are a lot more attainable ones. They're a nice reminder of how good most Americans have it, even if it doesn't always feel that way . . .
1. Having a Netflix subscription.
2.. Being able to buy gadgets every now and then, like a new phone.
3. Having steak at least once a month.
4. Being able to donate old clothes to Goodwill, because you don't need them anymore.
5. Having enough free time to do leisurely stuff, like going on walks or bike rides.
