You're going to have to move to a lower cost of living area. Someplace cheaper. Way cheaper. I live in Tennessee and it is about like living in in a third world country cost wise.

I recommend you get away from the city number #1. Cities are expensive. Live in a small town or even village. There are plenty of small towns that are close enough to a big city where you can visit when you want to.
