Well we are self employed so Idk if it will amount to $70 k there but as long as it pays the bills because it is way expensive up here, $70k and you'd think we make minimum wage!! And Spring Hillian I live in Worcester.

Good luck in your moving plan!
45 would be a cake walk in a tee shirt...I don't wear coats until it's below 40!! And I went camping in Fort De Soto in Februray 2010 or 2011 whatever one was that crazy cold year..and we did it in a tent!! With NO tent heater!!! It was pretty chilly at night but the days were in the 50's so I just had a tee on for most of the time, as the sun started to set I broke out the heavy sweatshirts...We must have picked the WORST time to ever decide to go tent camping of Florida!! LOL

Not a huge difference in how far the $ would go, but some......


Cost of living differs between:
Worcester County, MA and Hillsborough County, FL Salary: Adjusted For Cost
of Living: Location One:
Worcester County, MA $70,000 $70,000
Location Two:
Hillsborough County, FL
$66,530 Change in disposable income: $3,470
In essence, if you moved to Hillsborough County, FL and received the same salary you currently earn in Worcester County, MA, you would have an extra 3470 to spend as you see fit.

Sounds good to me Like I said as long as our bills are paid and our bellies are full, the rest is just whatever..I wont need to try and save up for a warm vaca so I can get some sunshine and warmth as I will have it year round!! And I only work 1 day a week because we can't afford childcare but my son will be in Kindergarten next year (Aug 2014)so I can devote more time to my career.

I'm guessing they're in questionable to crappy neighborhoods and probably not the best schools.

That is possible. I didnt investigate each location and do any comparisons. I just wanted to show that renting for 1k a month in Tampa is easily do-able so long as you don't expect the worlds most fantastic location.

Default Thank You

Spring Hillian, thank you for all of your wonderful information and tips. Thank you to everyone else for your tips as well

Actually we own a business so we aren't poor I just don't like to get in over our heads, I always like to know I am in good shape if one income is gone.

As far as the dogs, I have snuck them in the house I am living for the last 2 years, its not like I couldn't do that again but everywhere I have looked said Breed Restrictions, I have a full blooded Pit Bull and a Pit Bull mixed with a Rott, both are about 60lbs. So yes there are issues with having them.

Also I did mention one of the reasons I was moving is because my oldest son is about to graduate and there are lots of schools in FL he could choose from, and getting in state tuition would be better for us

Glad I could help. Sounds like the dogs may be a bit of a problem due to the perception of these breeds. They are not something a landlord would want in an apartment situation. A house with large yard, yeah, maybe. Surely feeding those brutes cost a lot as well. A financial obligation that most people dont need upon a relocation.
