The cost of living in Minneapolis St. Paul is comparable to the national average for most expenses. What should you budget for? Heating bills are the second highest in the nation because the winter is so cold and so long and fuel is expensive. Housing is cheaper than the national average. And clothing is cheaper in Minneapolis St. Paul because the state doesn't apply sales tax on clothes or shoes. Accounting for a large part of clothing and much other retail in the city is the Mall of America, the largest shopping mall in the country is in Minneapolis St. Paul' southern city limit.
Food prices in Minneapolis St. Paul are similar to the national average. Even though the length of the winter means a short growing season, and restricts what can be produced locally, there is a strong local Minnesota food movement and co-op markets selling local foods, and farmers' markets, are very popular.
