Hello I'm just curious my fiance and I decided Sacramento is not for us he works a dead end job I stay home with our kids we have 2, he makes about 2,000 a month and that is with no benefits in a warehouse we want to start over a new life we can't afford to have any more kids on this income or even really live life.
We were thinking of moving to Texas because we hear they have so many jobs opportunities and with benefits and the cost Of living is cheap but I am wondering is there anywhere else better for jobs and cost of living plus texas weather is crazy. We are willing to live in crazy weather just need some advice.

I'm looking at every state for

climate (my son has really bad allergies) Sacramento is city of trees he suffers here

Best schools to send my kids

Pay off jobs with benefits tired of struggling

Jobs availability

rental cost 700 is nothing in Sacramento we get the ghetto for that price

Cost of living

air quality I know texas is pretty bad but they are cheaper to live

Fun! We do alot with our kids every weekend but also need that alone time with out kids dancing etc

Housing cost after we move my family plan on following us and want to retire

Gas prices, I've seen our gas go almost to $5 lowest about $2.37

We are a family of Mexicans too half of us are light skinned and the other are dark skinned I don't want to relocate and go somewhere people won't accept us we are not illegals either

given your son's allergies, I think I'd start looking in the southwest-desert area. Basically any place where there's a change in seasons will probably not be good for him.

Saying that based on my sister's allergies-she moved to west TX.

Probably should move this to the Texas forum. That said, strike Dallas off your list. It was voted as one of the worst cities for allergies.

It would depend on what allergies you have? San Antonio and Austin have a season for cedar, but it does not affect everyone. We also have a small Oak season and random bout of mold showing up in the pollen count.
