Cheap Places to Live

I got into a discussion that led to this list of cheap places to live ...


Cheapest cities to live in:

Cheapest states to live in:

Least populated states:

States that are losing population are more likely to have empty housing:

Same with shrinking small towns and rural areas:

As a result some places are even offering sweetheart deals encouraging people to move there:

Basically, we have more people crowding into fewer cities, where there is intense competition for living space. Meanwhile, there is abundant living space elsewhere, much of it empty in some places. People have not yet caught on that work which can be done from home can be done anywhere. So it's a great time for self-employed folks to find a dirt-cheap place to live.
