Let’s face it: paying rent sucks. We’re forced to hand over our hard earned cash to our landlords the first of every month. It’s a constant reminder that we are too poor to buy a house and too young to understand the inner workings of the economy.
I was gonna put a down payment on a house last year but then I spent $44,000 on avocado toast https://t.co/SvSEisua71

Sadly, we still have to pay our rent no matter how prolific our avocado toast addictions may be. In some cities, however, paying rent is much more than a minor inconvenience. It’s an expensive ritual that will drain your savings and leave you penniless until your next paycheck.
You probably expect big cities to be expensive — but you might be surprised at just how high the cost of rent really is. We’ve compiled a quiz to test your knowledge on the cost of rent in major U.S. cities. The numbers reflect one-bedroom rent prices in cities across the U.S., directly from ABODO listings. Take the quiz to see where you can afford to live. (Hint: It’s not San Francisco.)
