So there is this sentence reads "His wife dresses on $500 a year."
And I have ZERO idea about what it was trying to say.

    His wife spends $500 on clothes each year. Whether this is considered too much or too little depends on the period in which the events take place.

    Examples

    I feed my family on $10 a day.
    I live on $20 a day.
