I live in NYS and it's not cheap. But I'd rather pay more to have superior public schools and not be in the south or south/midwest.

 We've lived in Michigan, Arkansas, Virginia, Texas and now Colorado. (DH is military) The cheapest places were Arkansas and Texas. Colorado is the most expensive, but my favorite!

I'm from texas. I was in NC recently for a visit and noticed things were considerably cheaper there.

Living where the cost of living is low isn't a benefit unless you're on fixed income. If you and/or your husband work, your income will probably be higher if you move to a place where the cost of living is higher. Ideally, during your working years, you want to live in a place where the cost of living is higher so that you earn more money. Then you want to move to a state where the cost of living is lower when you retire and have fixed income.

We moved from Phoenix to a place where the cost of living is slightly higher, and we make more money doing similar skill level of work.

USUALLY the cheapest places to live have the lowest wages and highest percent of  obese population , least desirable areas and worst schools.   So I personally would never want to know where the cheapest place is cause I wouldn't want to live there.  As with everything in life BALANCE

I live in Idaho. Cost of living here is pretty low. I like the weather most of the time.

I live in Upstate New York and it seems very affordable as far as cost of living goes.
