Hey folks, I've been a resident of Connecticut my whole life and just recently landed a job in the Ukiah/Redwood Valley area of Mendocino County. The income is $36,000. My question is, should this enable me to live in a reasonably comfortable rental and still have some money leftover to save? I tend to be pretty thrifty with my cash. Your thoughts would be welcome.

i imagine it'd depend on how much your rent winds up being? but yeah you can find some reasonably priced apartments in that area.

i doubt the change will be a huge environmental shock to you, though you may find the people a bit different. you must've researched beforehand and targeted your jobsearch?

Yes, I've done plenty of research on the area. I'll be working as a teacher, so fortunately my benefits will be covered in addition to the salary. Would you happen to know offhand how much a typical one-bedroom apartment costs monthly?

Ukiah Daily Journal - Classified Listings

Might as well use the Ukiah Daily Journel

I too used to live in Ukiah. Not a bad place to live. But I am glad I moved away. Wasn't right for us. And yea, you can do OK on $36K.
