My husband and I often talk about moving once the boys are out of the house. Our plans usually revolve around moving to Hilton Head or another similar area. My husband is really interested in moving to New Mexico (remember we live in the south) so this would be a major move.
Last night I suggested we put the house on the market and once it sells we pack up and move to New Mexico or somewhere. We won’t be in a hurry but we’ll start the process. Once we get to where ever we are going we can look for jobs. I know this sounds risky but we have a guaranteed income of $25,000 a year but with no debt plus 6 months living expenses (really it’s more like a year expenses since we will be debt free) so we can easily survive.
My kids love the idea of us moving since they will only be home during the summers.
I know with the economy it is pretty crazy to think like this. Would you ever consider just packing up and moving? Do you know of great places in New Mexico we should look into?
