In the process of deciding on the feasibility of moving, I am wondering if anyone has a monthly budget they'd like to share. Or if anyone can come up with the needed items that I am forgetting. My thoughts are:
Housing (rent or mortgage)
WAPA
Transportation costs (Car, gas, maintenance)
Healthcare costs
Groceries
Tuition/childcare
internet/phone services

Here's an earlier thread on the subject: https://www.vimovingcenter.com/talk/read.php?4,195801

Let us know if it leaves anything unanswered.

rent 700-? depends on many things, location , bedrooms, pool, etc.
transportation-gas for vehicle is currently 3.99
healthcare-if you do not have or get health insurance from an employer-you will not get it. premiums are high, almost half my paycheck-for me and hubby
groceries-at least 1/3 or more than what you are probably used to
tuition-private school-maybe 12,000 to 15,000 per year
internet 50, cell-you should be able to keep your cell phone.

Thanks for the link to the older post. Sometimes it is hard to know what word to search for. Other times it seems I've read a million things and forgotten!
A question brought up: Water costs....does the cistern usually cut it, or do you have to buy from WAPA?
