Interesting to see those numbers. Also interesting to see how the "weightings" have changed between the categories since then.. More than twice as much for food than rent? Almost half of rent for clothing? Or maybe the rent was just that low, relatively.

Although guess if you spent that much on food today (relative to rent/mortgage), you'd need to spend that much on clothes, too.. M -> L -> XL -> XXL... :)
