Cost of living in Los Angeles!

LA, SF, and NYC are probably the most expensive cities in the US. When you are considering to move to these cities you should be aware about the cost of living. Below is my current list

  • lease (2 bedroom apartment including utilities) – $2,000
  • food (I don’t cook often) – $1,000
  • gas – $150
  • car insurance – $50
  • cell phone plan – $40
  • other expenese (gym + some shopping) – $300

Total approximately: $3,540

I bought the used car with cash so I don’t have to pay monthly lease or rent but if I would pay for car financing my expenses would increase to $4,000 per month. We are still talking about I don’t spend for any uselessness. On the other hand, if you would really need to keep expenses below I believe you could share an apartment and pay probably around $1,000 and also maybe cut your food expenses to $500 so let’s say minimum expenses here could be like $2,000 per month. It is not life you would like to live here though.
