To conclude: in the first several month, the biggest cost of living is housing. If you
choose to stay in a house, I guess $1000 per month is very sufficient. This is based on
you are a married couple without kid. Single guy's monthly spent could be very unpredctable.
When I was single, I spent way lot more.
