Default Cheap and warm place to live, what city/state fits for me?

I'm looking to get out of my current city/state as I hate the cold with a passion, and fall and winter where I live is definitely cold. I don't like humidity that much either but I do like warm weather, so pretty much a dry heat is what I'm looking for. Also, I know that more times than not with cheap places you deal with rather questionable people and what not, however this is nothing new to me and not much of a concern.

Pretty much I'm looking for the cheapest and most comfortable (warm - hot weather but low humidity) city/state to live.

You might check out St. George or Cedar City in southern Utah. It's a beautiful area that has been gaining in popularity for it's weather and low cost of living.

Perhaps El Paso, Albuquerque or Tucson.

Texas has a noticably lower cost of living compared to most other states.

Stay away from Texas. The humidity will kill you and it's far from warm; it's terribly hot. When the temperature is still in the 90s at 11:00 p.m., it isn't pleasant. El Paso would be okay though for Texas with a drier heat. Texas is fairly inexpensive, comparatively speaking, but not when it comes to homeowner's insurance (the highest in the nation), property taxes, and utility bills.

Right now, I'm looking at southern Utah as another posted suggested. Cedar City has better air quality than St. George. Fairly hot and dry days, but normally cooling in the 50s at night IN THE SUMMER!

as always I suggest North Carolina, but South Carolina may be a good choice for you

He’s correct, Tucson and Phoenix & metro areas are the perfect location for no cold, snowy, icy weather. Low humidity, warm to hot, sunny days 95% of the days, no earth quakes, no hurricanes, no tornadoes, the economics are they’re affordable for most anyone.
