it would be cheaper and easy-er to go down one tooth on the front sprocket

Note that, in theory going down in the front will add stress and wear on the chain, also making the wheelbase longer.
Going 3 tooth up on the rear will theoretically reduce the wear and shorten the wheelbase, which might be preferable, the significance in real life of this wear, I don't know but the gain in traction will be similar.
