Many Mainers live paycheck to paycheck, yours truly included, so saving money where we can is very important. I found an interesting story on about the 10 Most Affordable Places In Maine.


They looked at the 34 towns and cities in Maine with a population of 5,000 or more and factored in the 'Cost of Living Index'. That includes the cost of housing, food, gas, health insurance, utilities and transportation.

According to their data, here are the '10 Most Affordable Places in Maine'.

1. Houlton
2. Caribou
3. Presque Isle
4. Skowhegan
5. Waterville
6. Augusta
7. Old Town
8. Winslow
9. Gardiner
10. Bangor

Falmouth came in as the most expensive place to live in Maine.
