All right, Veeky Forums. Rent in LA even with roommates in a cuck shed is $6-700 per month and looks like doesn't get lower than that. With utilities and we're approaching $800. I could lease a new car with that money. Gas, insurance, repairs and maintenance would be additional expenses, and there's still the commute jew, but all in should still come out cheaper than renting an apartment here. Is this the Veeky Forums way to go, Veeky Forums?

lol user you're on Veeky Forums Veeky Forums

majority of kids here still live with their parents in some flyover state. They will tell you to move out of that "liberal shithole". truth is, do whatever you can afford and try not to live beyond your means.

I have a friend whos now lives Little Tokyo where his S2K just collects dust in the garage as there is like no point to driving it anywhere (he's a work at home dude). Also its obviously expensive.

I lived in my car for a year. Stayed in LaHabra for a couple of months. Get a van, m8. You can get a small van like a Transit Connect/Promaster City.

DONT FUCKING LEASE.

Move out of your liberal shithole. In any red state you will have far less taken from your paycheck and rent will be lower. Plus car regulations are cheaper too and no emissions bs. In Texas you can take a straight piped car to nearly any mechanic and it'll pass inspection

Yeah whatever hickboy, don't compare your shithole roads to our roads ever again. I've seen where you people live, and it's fucking disgusting. Austin is the only civilized city left in your big pile of nothing state.

Florida.

warm
fuck snow, but that won't be a problem in LA
taxes are ridiculously low, specifically with the absence of state income tax
little to no restrictions on cars
cost of living is wayyy lower than cali
university system is excellent
lots and lots of jobs in just about every sector coming in all the time, so you'll easily be able to find work
literally never deal with snow
car culture is actually pretty fun here; I am at FSU right now and there are pretty much v6 mustangs and camaros everywhere, but actual car meets have some really cool stuff, even up here in the sticks in tallahassee.

Objectively the best state for Veeky Forums, only downside is our lack of fun roads.

I live in LA. Pay $750 in rent, another $100 in utilities. I can't imagine ever owning a home here besides by inheriting my parents'. I'll probably move to another state some day but I don't like the idea of leaving my home state to a bunch of beaners and Hollywood transplant fags. Get a motorcycle, it'll save you from the commute and insurance jew. Living out of a car/van/rv always turns to shit, literal shit. I've known a handful of respectable non druggie people that tried it and it's a bunch of work just staying clean and sane.

Live in Ohio
Rent is seriously cheap as fuck and can buy a nice house with land for like next to nothing
Lots of snow in upper Ohio so can have a snowmobile or have a boat for Lake Erie
Lots of great twisty driving roads in the southeast or around Pittsburgh
Jobs in Columbus
Low taxes
Kickass corn and soybeans everywhere so can hoon in fields
No dumb retail alcohol laws
No fucking car inspections

Move to Colorado
Rent is like $1500 a month for trash apartments and huts cost starting $350k to buy with no lawn
So dry skin itches constantly
State is ruined by Texans and Californians
Great twisty roads in the mountains
Jobs pretty much only in Denver where rent is high and the jobs don't pay comparatively
Have to buy alcohol in special stores
High taxes
Potheads. liberals, and homeless people everywhere
Have to pass a yearly emissions and safety inspection so you can't mod your car or even use an aftermarket ECU or tune

Fuck this I'm going back

Your life isn't exactly going to be better in ohio and your wages are def going to be less, there's a reason why its cheap there and it aint because there are a bunch of "white" people there.

I'd leave the state because I could buy a big house with land in Vermont for like 300. I'd feel bad leaving my parents though. My two siblings already moved to DC and I'm all they have left here in LA.

Honestly you should consider moving to the Midwest. The cost of living is pretty cheap.

Inb4 flyover. Anyone who says that clearly hasn't been anywhere in northern Michigan, it's beautiful up there. Also cheap to live up north too, unless you go for a meme city like Mackinac island

paying out the ass for a shoebox because you love the city so much
If people hocking the "liberal shithole" meme are kids still living at home then people hocking the "muh beautiful cultured city" are in their late twenties and early thirties blowing thousands a month on rent all so they can blow it on garden variety recreation.
I paid 1800 a month in rent so I can have some food I can't get elsewhere
so I can fuck around a bit in a club
Whereas your parents already had careers and children while you're just playing around in the city. Grow up.

Traverse City is cool, in October I went to the u.p for the first time with some friends and I legit didn't want to leave. Everyone was so nice and the scenery was stunning. If you ever get a chance go to Tahquamenon Falls State Park and walk on the trails. It takes a few hours to walk from end to end but it's so worth it

if your goal is to save money, sleeping in the car is way to go. grab a used transit connect cargo van, convert it into a living space and you got a efficient mobile home.

get a 24 hrs membership and u can use bathroom/shower all day long, and can safely sleep in its parking lot at night.

get an unlimited wireless plan and tether it for Wifi.

it wont be a comfortable lifestyle, but u can sure as hell save a lot of money.
