It’s harder for creative professionals to make a living in big cities.

An article from Slate: It’s harder for creative professionals to make a living in big cities. Many are looking elsewhere.

Yup, Seattle is getting sharply more expensive. Over the past 5 years:

  • A fancy coffee has gone from $3.25 to $5
  • Take-out for 2 has gone from $18 to $28
  • We’ve downsized from 1200 to 400 square feet and given up our car.
  • Many of my friends live in one bedroom apartments costing over $2000/mo

I love Seattle, but sometimes I think about moving to a lower cost-of-living area.
