If NYC Is Too Expensive, Move to Mississippi

If NYC Is Too Expensive, Move to Mississippi

Has it finally dawned on you that living in New York City is expensive as hell? Are you considering relocating to stretch a dollar as far as it can possibly go? Well a recent study by the Economic Policy Institute suggests that maybe Marshall County, Miss. is the place for you.

The EPI considered housing, transportation, food, taxes, health care, child care and transportation when determining basic family budgets. According to their data, the basic family budget of a two-parent, two-child family is $48,144 in Marshall County, Miss. compared to $93,502 in New York City. Marshall County may have half the budget and less attractions, but you'll get more for your money.

It's just something to consider.
