    I've been wondering what the cost of living is around the country (and world i guess) compared to where I live.

    So, those of you who pay rent or own a house or partment or whatever, how much ya spending and where ya live?

    For me, in Georgia

    2 bedroom 2 bathroom house with about 1/4 acre

    Water/sewage-22.45 every month, never more, never less
    Gas=ranges from 40-60, but last month was 200
    Electricity=35-60, usually about 45
    Internet and Cable tv-85.85 a month, thats 3 meg internet, channels 1-100 and all the movie channels.

    So whats your cost of living?

    eastside detroit

    rent-1 bedroom apartments are around 500
    2 bedrooms are slightly more
    you can get a house for 600-800
    my landlord charges 250 a head
    Utilities- most apartements around here
    include gas and H20
    I pay out my ass because its a
    big drafty house that needs new windows
    H20 I never pay the bill. It looks to be
    about 100 every 3 months

    Gasoline- 2.00 a gallon this one has me pissed the fuck
    I could really have used a roomate during the winter
    but as soon as its warm outside my utilities are piss cheap
    During the winter im looking at about $600 all together
    in the summer when im not driving so much and i dont
    have to heat the place its about $300 a month

    goddamn that's cheap... i'm assuming slave lives in new york, in or around the city, because her figures are what i'm used to seeing... with 2 bedroom places going for at least $1600-$1700.

    Do you New Yorkers make more then?
    is everything relative or is everybody
    always broke. In order to afford a 1000
    a month 1 bedroom appartment i would
    have to make atleast 15 an hour , constantly
    work overtime, and starve on the regular.
    I would probably be straight destitute in NYC
