Poverty in Paradise

I wish I had known about this site before I moved to Hawaii.  It takes a salary you put in, the place you are moving from, where you are moving to, and then compares the biggest essential costs of living. I put in the move I made in October, and it’s ridiculous. If you are looking at relocating, look at this site.

Check this out:

If you move from NM Rio Rancho to HI Honolulu:
Groceries will cost: 71.858% more
Housing will cost: 175.528% more
Utilities will cost: 63.252% more
Transportation will cost: 32.741% more
Health will cost: 20.140% more
