Top 5 Most Affordable U.S. States to Move In

When it comes to finding the right place to spend the rest of your life into, there’s no certain recipe for success – and we all know it. However, everybody is looking for an affordable place that leaves at least a part of their income for fun and hobbies. Let’s check out the most affordable U.S. spots that help you enjoy life just a tiny bit more.

  1. Oklahoma

A 2,400-quare-foot house of 300 grand and bread that costs less than $3? Not only is Oklahoma a quiet spot perfect for relaxation, but it also offers plenty of means of entertainment.

  1. Michigan

As the legend goes, you are never more than 6 miles away from a natural body of water. The Great Lakes State is home to the American auto industry and its good economy reduces the monthly costs to run your vehicle. The auto industry rebounded and is now leveling off, Detroit is on the comeback trail after its historic bankruptcy, high-tech jobs are supplanting manufacturing, and health care is booming.

The Crossroads of America is a state well-known for the Indianapolis 500 – and, as a plus, a Quarter Pounder with Cheese will cost you no more than $3.93. If you’re around, why not get a haircut of just $12 for gents and $32 for ladies? End the day with a hot, tasty coffee that doesn’t take you more than $4.43 per pound.

  1. Mississippi

A quick look at the recent U.S. history reminds us of the first bottle of Coca Cola, which was made right here, in Mississippi, back in 1894. And luckily for everyone, Coca-Cola isn’t the only thing you can get for a bargain in this state. In short, Mississippi is such a cheap state to live in because that is what its citizens can afford considering their unemployment rate and an average low income of the residents.
