I thought this was pretty funny. Now that he is for sure getting transferred to NH in the spring, it's amazing the difference in areas. when I lived with my friends we had a HUGE 3 bedroom, 2 full bath, balcony, garage... whole deal for under $800. here, you can't find a 2 bedroom under 1200.

That is something that always amazes me, how much the prices differ from location to location. For what our mortage was in WA, we could get a bigger house here in Mississippi, with LAND! Our house in WA was 10 feet from our neighbors.

Even the price difference of milk, bread, eggs differs. My mom was down and got the tooth compound stuff it was $2 cheaper here than it is at home in PA. Totally crazy.

Yes Gwen and don't forget to mention that that imaginary studio would certainly NOT be in Manhattan.

Seriously - we live in a very expensive city.

I am always jealous of the prices people get for houses and rent... $800 a month over here would get you a lovely home with bars on the window and maybe a couch on the porch
