1. If you’re concerned about money, move to a place that has OPPORTUNITY. Living cheaply gets thrown out the window if you can’t make decent money. Plus, frugal people do best in large cities where they get paid a ton more but can keep their COL relatively similar to other cities. 2. Make new friends ASAP – it’s harder than in college so take time for this 3. Bike. That shiz saves you so much money. Live close to wherever you go the most. Cars make you fatter and poorer, bikes make you leaner and richer.

I second Melanie’s advice….I would only add that this research should preferably be done BEFORE deciding to move. Compare the top contenders….

1. Understand the cost of living
2. Look at the local economy for jobs
3. Understand the tax rate

I didn’t think about ANY of these things and wish I did.
