Singapore has been named the most expensive city in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit's Worldwide Cost of Living Survey again this year and cost of living is 16% higher than New York.

As a young Singaporean living in Singapore, there are many challenges that we may encounter during different stages of life - Education, Savings, Marriage and Housing.


Getting a degree in Singapore is an expensive matter whether you are studying at a Private or Public University. The average cost of a degree ranges between S$30,000 and S$85,000.


There are so many things that we want such as leisure trips, attending concerts or getting that designer bag. Such desires made it hard for us, young Singaporeans to save even after we have joined the workforce.


A typical wedding dinner could cost S$24,000 and above which is almost equivalent to an average young Singaporean's annual salary. This is not inclusive of other costs such as venue rental, gowns and makeover, videography and photography services, and so forth.

New Home

With marriage comes the house needs. Renovation costs are rising and a basic renovation would cost an average of S$30,000 or more.
