Being frugal really helps too
As with most things, everyone's situation varies. For example, if someone already owns a place and a vehicle, and has low enough income (or plenty of deductions) to not pay HI's second-highest-in-the-country income tax of 11%, then only the 4.166% GE tax is in play. And that's only charged on consumption so if there aren't any big-ticket purchases in the works, or you're just the frugal sort, the tax burden in Hawaii can be relatively inexpensive; especially compared to the west coast, great lakes or northeast. Just stay out of the tourist places where $8 restaurant-served hamburgers tend to cost $16+tax+tip.
