The shelter portion of this budget surprised me. Just yesterday, DH found a Minneapolis newspaper from 1942 in our basement. We were looking at the rentals in the classified ads. I saw a 5-room apt. that cost $45/month.

Surprised you because it was 'high', or because it was 'low'? The $18 was for a 1 bedroom apartment in Brooklyn, NYC (also called a 3-4 room apartment). Does a 5-room apt in Minneapolis have 2 bedrooms? Here it does, and it almost doubles the rent!
