"Affordable"? You might want to start with what your occupation will be since jobs can be hard to come by. Rate of pay and cost of living are closely related. Do you have any weather preferences? What do you want to do in your spare time? Do you have enough cash to get yourself relocated and set-up a living situation? Many variables are involved in making a successful move that you will be happy with.

Move to a growing college town. But not a real small one, like under 25,000 in pop., since jobs may be limited. Such a town would be more oriented toward people your age. The college may have some full time job openings. If you don't want to go to college, make sure the college town has an institution that offers training in various fields that don't require a college degree.

You might have trouble moving to a different state with the kids, depending on the custody situation.. Tennessee is pretty low cost of living wise too.. How abouts the outskirts of Nashville, or over by Clarksville and the Army Base....

I'm a little confused. I looked through past posts looking for some background to be better able to help you and I found mention of a fiance' that wanted to find FX training posted three days ago. Did you break up? Is that the divorce or is it from someone else? I also found that you are still in school. If you have had a traumatic break-up it is normal to want to escape to somewhere, anywhere, else. Rather than make a panic move or make a big costly mistake figure out where your support network is, (probably Memphis since you were raised in the area) and tap into that support. Finish school. Then if you want a fresh start do that from a position of strength. Best of luck.

Great advice - you also took the time. City data wont let me give you rep points until I spread some more around.
