It is possible, but you will have to economize a bit, due to kindergarten and other child-related expenses. No big dinners out every week, shop at discount stores, etc. You might economize by renting a house near TTU vs. an apartment. Lubbock historically has one of the lowest COL in Texas. Good luck, and Welcome to Lubbock.
