Hello my name is Mark and I am currently a surgical technician student. After I graduate I should have 10 K saved and will want to move from OK to CO. I did some research and Scrub techs start out making 39 K a year. Is it possible to live in Colorado Springs or Denver or a suburb of the two and be able to survive comforably at all? While being single with no children?

For sure in COLO SPGS, a bit tighter in Denver, but Denver is huge, has a lot more opportunities and a lot more things to see and do.

Single, no kids, no problem ...Even in Denver or Boulder. Even easier in COS. Unless like so many around here, your definition of 'comfortable' is a fully upgraded multi-bedroom home with panoramic views and a 3+ car garage.

Sounds like you're off to a good start. Keep it up.

Totally do-able in either place. I've read that Denver is one of the cheapest large cities to live in.

Is the OP the same surgical tech who posted about moving to Boston for $49K?
I live outside Boston and work as an RN. Continue to obsess about Colorado but accept that I am living here, certainly as long as I'm working. But I'd sure consider Denver/CO Springs if I were to move to a city again, and if you have a clean shot at a new place... Denver sounds great.
