You are wanting $2,000 (U.S. bucks) refrigerators, $1,900 washers, $8,000 TVs?! Well, dang, I wish I lived that Mexican lifestyle. Must have Antonio Banderas living next door. I have a perfectly good fridge, washer and TV for a miniscule fraction of those prices, and it all was bought here en nuestro Mexico Lindo.

But, you are right, it depends on what luxuries one thinks indispensable. You sound like you live pretty well. Que suerte.
However, I bask in the moral support of GPK, Marlene, Manda405, and, in her last paragraph, the inimitable, but high-living, Cuerva.
I do not live very humbly, and I bought everything I need right here in Mexico. I did not spend that much either. It can be done easily, and so I stick by my original recommendation. It is cheaper and far easier to move to Mexico via plane with your bank account and suitcases. I think, to a great extent, it has much do with how emotionally attached one is to the past.
Perhaps our differences of opinion on this spring from places deeper than money.
