Isn’t it true that we all want to save some money? There is no doubt that times have changed and that things are more expensive now than they used to be. Increasing living costs seem to be the norm with each passing year. North Carolina has a lot to offer people of all income levels. We even have a city that made the cheapest city list.
In terms of cheap living, the best places to settle down are mostly south of the Mason-Dixon line. Texas, Tennessee, and Alabama are just a few of the states that make multiple appearances on our list of the cheapest U.S. cities to live in. Kiplinger compiled rankings of America’s 25 cheapest cities based on the Council for Community and Economic Research’s (C2ER) calculations of living expenses in 267 urban areas. They then limited themselves to metro areas with at least 50,000 inhabitants.
So what is the cheapest area in North Carolina to live in? Below you can see a ranking from highest to lowest of the top 25 in the United States. I am pretty impressed we have a city in the top 20 ranking!
