The financial budgeting site Mint.com has released data showing how much their San Francisco users spend on everything from going out to eat (a lot) to rent (even more). The data, which was gathered between May 2013-2014, comes from people who track their expenses online and on their mobile devices, so it may be slightly skewed to an affluent tech-saavy crowd.
The data from Mission and Bernal Heights shows an average monthly paycheck of $5,964.94 with an average $1,900.52 going to mortgage and rent.
This means that the average annual salary is $71,579.28. If you are earning this amount of money a year and have babies, chances are you spend quite some time working and therefore spend a monthly average of $1,359.15 on babysitting and daycare, the number one expense besides rent and mortgages.
Mission residents seem to spend equal amounts of money on groceries –$373.29– and going out to eat at restaurants –318.57. And, when residents eat out at restaurants they spend on alcohol as well. The average monthly expense dedicated to bars and alcohol is of $103.09.
In terms of fitness, Mission residents seem to be slackers. According to Mint.com, Mission users spend $95.30 a month on the gym, not nearly as much as the $150.88 that the Embarcadero and SoMa residents do.
