I live in central FL, and the cost of living is moderately high compared to the average wages. I make $20/hr and my DH makes $10/hr...even with careful budgeting we struggle a bit. We bring home an average of $4000 a month after taxes, insurance, and his CS, and our bills total about $3500, so there's not a lot of wiggle room. Our rent alone is $1200.

I lived in NNY for 3 years, and I never noticed a particularly high cost of living.....HAWAII, on the other hand, is awful.
