    Ideally, you will need a minimum of 6 months’ living expenses and a job that covers 120% of your estimated living expenses. Your rent should not exceed 33% of your gross (pre-tax) income.

    You will need to buy something that gets you to/from work (car, bicycle, shoes, bus pass), a bed or futon, clothes dresser, kitchenware (dishes and cups), table ware (forks, spoons, knives), cleaning supplies and toilet paper, grooming supplies, a vacuum, a refrigerator (your apartment might have one), a checking account to pay bills, and anything else that helps get you through the day. Don’t forget to budget for utilities (gas/propane, electricity, water, sewer, trash, telephone, cable, Internet, and petrol for the car), food, and insurance (auto and renter’s insurance).

    You might also want a sofa, chairs, a dining table, cocktail table, lighting, a television and TV stand, and other furniture.

    IDK what you do for a living or how much you make but you may want to secure a job before you move. Depending on the company, they may even help pay for the relocation.

    Start SHOPPING for housing, utilities, etc in the area you are considering. Until you KNOW the cost of living, any answer is a BAD guess. The cost of lining in any given STATE does not exist. You need to narrow it down, at least, to a county to get a BALLPARK estimate.
