    Living in New Hampshire seems like the highest priced place to live.What do you consider the cheapest state to live in? I have really only heard Tennessee but jobs are not all that easy to find.

    Houston, Texas is a pretty good bargain price wise (we get lots of house for our money compared to many other places) and jobs are still found here with the exception of those working in oil and gas which right now due to lowered gasoline prices are cutting back on employees.
