The people who do the research, contact recruiters and potential employers, check insurance rates, taxes, utility companies, weather, can base their decisions on facts. Or they can go to Nevada, Arizona, NC or Texas.
Amen!

I didn't read all the responses but I'll put my 2 cents in. I have aunt's and uncle's retired on the west coast of Florida, specifically, Cape Coral, which may be a little more reasonable and less humid with the coastal breeze. Nice quiet town with homes reasonably priced and just a short drive to the beaches. I always liked visiting down there from Orlando. Anything inland, fugget about it if you don't like humidity.

Things are expensive in Florida. For instance, Publix 12-pack Coke is $4.99 or around there when I was there. I come home and it is 3/$12 at Kroger's in Kentucky. And I can't go to BBB here for toothpaste, facial products, etc. But in Florida all the BBB have drugstore items. Not in KY~! We are so far behind the times and I'm in the biggest city in Kentucky~!

There are sales if you look at certain times, even at publix.

Have you tried to get your insurance re-rated? Shop it around. $5k/year for a 2700sqft home seems pricey. I have a 2100sqft home that is pretty old (1979) and it runs $3100 year and my 5500sqft house is $3800/year. I would think you could save $1k+. Have a few different agents bid on it.

I know they have sales there, but not when I go in there for my coke products. Kroger's is different. You can get coupons online which apply at your checkout, but not at Publix~!

Publix has sales on Coke products all the time. Do you not see that it's silly to complain Publix is expensive by comparing a non-sale to a sale?

Have you even looked online for coupons at Publix? I mean, really?

Printable Grocery Coupons | Online Grocery Coupons | Publix Super Markets

You can print hundreds of coupons, as well as digital coupons.

I know there are other places to get coke products and that Publix has digital coupons too, but.....I use to use them until the cashier would not take them from my phone. She called the manager and he told me I can't use them. I complained and told them it was on their site and they aren't from another source as he said. I had to take all of my groceries (a lot) over to the customer service desk to check out. Anyways, I do shop at other places like the Green Markets, Whole Foods, Walmart, etc.

That is not the way digital coupons work at Publix. You go to their site. You sign in with your e-mail and password. Then you click on the coupons you would use or all as a just in case. The digital coupons are good for 2-4 weeks usually and remain tied to you. When you o into the store and check out, you put your phone number in the debit machine first. When they total the tab it automatically takes off the coupons you clicked on earlier. You do not show your phone. If you do the regular coupons you do have to click on and bring in to use them. There are also also 2 or 3 different types of Publix fliers that you can get coupons from right in the stores, too.
