southeast texas isn't as bad economy wise as other places, and as someone without a lot of financial baggage, you could do OK here - VERY cheap cost of living - there are places to rent for about $400 a month if you look!

Try Texas. We don't have state income tax here. Some smaller cities you might check out are Denton, Sherman, Waco, College Station, Temple...

I wouldn't suggest Nashville. It is very expensive here. I agree with Birmingham.

Try Casper, Wyoming. They have the lowest level of unemployment in the country and their cost of living is relatively low. On the other hand it's really hard to find an apartment.

york pa has an average 2 bedroom 2 bath with pool and allows pets for 840.00 plus gas electric and cable. lots of gas station cashier jobs but you need to work 50 hours a week to make it. Good Luck!

I would disagree with Indianapolis, IN that and Hamilton county is the highest places to live in IN. Now other towns especially rural areas in IN are cheap living compared to other states.

Yes, Jaxson...Hamilton County is very expensive to live in IN..but there are a lot of one bedroom apts in indy that are under 500 dollars a month, and you dont find that in a lot of big cities..I live in a 600+sq ft apt that cost only $400 a month...not the norm though, i guess.

Default dont

move to cali. high tax, high crime and high people. tho, if youd like - check out cheap ass towns such as bakersfield, hesperia, barstow, and anywhere pretty much in the central valley. work in the fields hombre. haha. coastal, your looking at 900 for a one bed. inland, like 760 one bedroom.

midwest, and all that **** is poop cheap. but id suggest coastal oregon. slow, low paying jobs, rain, and the beach?! shiiiiiii

While I agree that the Northeast as a whole can be expensive, there are plenty of "pockets" of less-expensive areas, especially in mill towns or former mill towns and cities. For example, Worcester, MA or Plainfield, CT. I'm sure there are plenty of others.
