Lowest cost of living for the first quarter of 2007 goes to Ok,TX,TN.AR, and NE. Mostly it's lowest in the south and midwest areas.

From places I've been,

Texas, Tennessee, Georgia, and Kansas all had good cost of living.

For my wife's occupation,

she would make 10% more in Miami, but similar homes would cost 185% more
she would make 3% less in Rockford, IL, but similar homes would cost 16% less
she would make 16% more in San Antonio, but similar homes would cost 10% more

It's not bad. NE has an umeployment rate of 3.1% The others are TX-4.1%,
OK-4.5%,TN-4.8%,AR-5.1%. The states with the lowest unemployment rate right now are ID and Montana at 2.3%.

If you are going to move some of these places might be a good fit.

I agree that in general most of the Midwest is pretty affordable as far as costs go. The only exception might be Chicago, but I guess it depends on where you want to live in there. Missouri, Wisconsin, Indiana and Ohio in particular I have found to be particularly affordable. all of their major cities generally have low and affordable housing prices.
