When considering a new place to live, you have to take into account the affordability. For most of us, moving to one of the bigger cities isn’t feasible. According to MIT’s living wage calculator, the average household income in San Francisco, for example, is $92,139. Even though San Francisco is home to Silicon Valley, unless you’re working in tech, it’s likely you won’t make enough to live there.

1. Mississippi

Mississippi is one of the cheapest states to live in the US. With a median salary of $39,665 and a median home price of $103,100, it's an affordable state full of diverse and bustling cities. A conglomerate of Southern charm, ample history, and the Mississippi River to the west, the Magnolia State is all-too-often overlooked. Mississippi is also a state custom made for nature-lovers, with everything from vast forests to swamps to beaches on the Gulf Coast.
