According to the website Niche, these are North Dakota's 10 least expensive cities to live in. Before we get to that, here's how they determined their data.  It's based on the cheapest places to live in America relative to income.  Ranking of cost of living by city based on the consumer price index and access to affordable housing using data from the U.S. Census and BLS.

A more detailed look into Niche's methodology include, home value to income ratio, median home value, median rent, monthly housing cost to income ratio, CPI gas index, CPI grocery index, Median effective property tax, rent to income ratio and state tax share.

So, as you can see there's a lot of factors that go into their data, or as my Dad used to say, "a method to the madness."  Oh, by the way, Bismarck came in at #14 and Lincoln was at number 17.  So, here are the top 10 cities, that are easy on the pocketbook.
