#Anonymous on Jan 09, 2017 :
i agree with the rent of one bedroom very usual old apt rent is 500 out of city and cheapest but then all those expensive bills pile up. enjoying public transportation, bell internet at your home, electericity and mobile is another 300$. now we add shopping, food, restaurants not lux, morning coffee not at tim horton,medical urgencies, pharmacy, beauty and healthcare without travel is another500$. at my estimation to be able to live like a normal being without being able to go to holiday monthly income of 2000 is enough.if you really need to save sth for going travel you need to make at least 3000/mo. i made 1500$ last monthes at i am now literally screwed with credit debt. if u can live without means of a rather comfortable life and u sacrifice having internet, transportation and phone plus food 1500 is enough. i really tried to give a realistic picture here.

We pay $1350 for rent plus another $70 for parking, for a 1 bedroom in the St. Sacrament area. It would seem we are getting ripped off!
