Valentine’s Day on a Budget

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, February 10, 2015 at 12:00:00 am

So we’ve talked about some great things to buy for Valentine’s Day. You might be sitting at home thinking that all sounds great, but I’ve got a budget. Who has the money to really show that special someone just how special they truly are? Well, good thing you live in Oklahoma City. Unlike many metros, OKC is affordable. I mean, you can live in NYC, but can you really LIVE in NYC?

Did you know that if you made $35,000 working in Oklahoma City that is the equivalent of only making $14,500 in Manhattan? What kind of witchcraft did we come up with to figure those numbers? Check out our Cost of Living Calculator. It couldn’t be easier. Simply type in a base salary and pick two metros to compare.

The tool gives you an in-depth breakdown of what basic living goods cost in each city and most times you will see Oklahoma City always comes in more affordable. Were you thinking of cooking your special someone a nice spaghetti dinner for Valentine’s Day? Good thing you are in OKC. Parmesan Cheese is currently running at $7.16 in Manhattan. Here in the 4-0-5 you can get it for just $3.60. Oklahoma City: where living on a budget can still lead to caviar dreams and champagne wishes.
