So me and the wife have decided cost of living in the bay area has gone way beyond worth it and we will eventually need to leave. We are not quite ready to leave California though so right now we are thinking of going closer to Sacramento or the LA area. I'm leaning towards LA since Sac's job market is pretty meh. The LA area seems to be somewhat cheaper than the bay and has a decent job market. Just wanted to see what the quality of life is down there and is it really reasonably affordable.
