I'm thinking of taking a postdoc in at UMass in Worcester, MA but am having trouble ironing out cost of living expenses. Where can I can I afford to live around there, preferably with a (relatively speaking) easy commute to Boston?

I would prefer someplace that is <$1200/month, though I think that I can technically can only afford something around $1000/month (according to the "1/3 of your income" rule). Everything I have found so far, however, is more like $1400/month. The only real requirements are that the place is large enough for two people to live in, that there is reasonable accessibility for commuting to Boston, and that they allow pets.
Is this possible or is Massachusetts just unaffordable for my situation?
