If living well, not frivolous or extravagant is your idea of the perfect life, you can achieve the American dream in the Great Lakes State. You do not have to break the bank to live a comfortable life, and these ten Michigan cities are proof of that.

So how did Home Snacks determine the cheapest Michigan cities to live in? By crunching data from the US Census in terms of median housing costs, median income, and overall cost of living for cities with over 5,000 residents.

Spoiler alert, if you think you will find a big city on the list below - think again. However, these are not one-horse towns either. Some of the cities listed may even surprise you.

You don't have to sacrifice anything in these cheap cities. Each is filled with nice houses, jobs, and restaurants. The difference is affordability. If you live in one of the cheapest cities already, I am interested in hearing from you.

Do you feel like you the cost of living in your city is affordable, or are you wondering why the heck the city you live in even made this list? Let me know.

I have been to quite a few of the cities on this list - super nice places and I want to be clear that cheap in this instance means affordable. No disrespect at all for Michigan's 10 Cheapest places to live.
