The Most Affordable States in America

Wanting to make a change? You wouldn’t be alone. Every year, people move across the nation for something new. Sometimes, it’s a new career. Few things are more refreshing than completely changing your life to do something new. Other times, it can be for a change of pace. One of the biggest people move is for a change in weather – tired of the cold? Depending on where you end up, your paycheck may or may not be enough for your new hometown.

For example, if you live in Nebraska, your money may not go as far if you moved to Colorado. Additionally, you may be living frugally on your California budget, but your dollar could go much further if you moved to another part of the country.

If you want to make a big move, we decided to look at all 50 states to find the most affordable places for people to live. After our research, we found 10 of the easiest-on-your-wallet states you can find. These are places that you can go and have a little money in your bank after you pay rent and utilities! That’s living the dream, isn’t it? Did your state make it on this list?
