It looks like we're going to be proper Americans for a little while!

As you might know already from previous posts, DH and I are longtime ex-pats. We've been living in various overseas posts since we were kids (I've been overseas since age 14, and DH since age 7!), and we usually only spend the occasional summer in the USA.

We've just accepted a new posting that will have us living in the USA for 1-3 years! It will be a very new experience for us, since even though we are technically American, we're used to living abroad.

Any tips for budget living in the USA? Are there any other ex-pats here that have moved back home? Just trying to wrap my mind around the whole thing- it's weird.
