Ran some actual numbers on expenditures and stuff over my obsessive textfile notekeeping on such things since spring of 2008. Overall expensiveness of living for me in pittsburgh:philadelphia:new york is in proportions of about 1:1.4:2. Regardless of location, rent accounts for roughly half of my expenses, "food" for about a quarter. I put quotes around "food" because this category includes whatever cash I get from the ATM and don't keep track of beyond that granularity.
