That's easy to say if you have a decent job and don't live in one of the high cost-of-living areas in the country. And sure, it's easy to say "So just move where it's cheaper," but ... in case you don't watch or read the news ... there aren't a lot of jobs out there right now, anywhere in the country. I've been through several economic downturns in my life, and I have NEVER seen so many people out of work and so few jobs of ANY kind.
