Located in Wisconsin is one of the top five cheapest cities to live in the United States.

Everything Has Gotten So Expensive

I do not know if you have noticed, everything has gotten so expensive. I went to the grocery store and it cost me over $200. It blew my mind. Gas is approaching $5 per gallon. I am hoping things return to normal soon because the cost of living is ridiculous.

We are lucky to live in Rockford because it is much cheaper than in big cities like Chicago. I do not know how people afford to stay there. Have you ever thought of finding a cool but less expensive place to live? I went to Wisconsin over the weekend and paid $3.99 per gallon for gas which was really exciting. That is wrong for so many reasons. Maybe, Wisconsin is the answer.
