When my husband was in graduate school, we made $12K a year. We did without cable and smart phones. Tracfones worked out to $10 a month. BTW, groceries were $200 a month and we grew a lot of our own food. The key to making it on $20K or less a year in FL is starting with no debt and not accumulating any.

Not true! I live in Wellington - which is considered a highly desirable & very expensive area (with A-rated schools and almost no crime) in Western Palm Beach County. For $1800/mo, we are renting a 3 bedroom 2 bath single family home in a gorgeous gated community with loads of amenities included (3 pools, gym, tennis courts, playgrounds, walking trails, etc). Apartments or smaller condos start at around 1000/mo to rent. I know many other parts of the state are less expensive than here. To say that rent is 1800/mo "everywhere" is crazy

Schools in FL are often not that great. Are you considering that in your relocation plans?
