Try moving to NYC or SF. $80k won't go very far.
I'm looking to downsize my life in a few years. There has to be a happy medium between a huge city and completely rural. Cities like Austin, Portland, Boulder/Denver seem to have a nice balance, but maybe I'm just kidding myself.
GoW, why the decision to move?
I like in SF. $80000 will get you plenty far. You guys have terrible money management skills.
No it does not get you far. Yes you can obviously budget to live like a poor person if you want. Maybe you should move out of SF and see what it gets you elsewhere.
