Welcome to Boston Living on the Cheap. As the editor and publisher, I’m thrilled to help you find and enjoy free and cheap things to do in and around Boston.
Boston and its environs are wonderful places to live. There are many cultural institutions, dozens of colleges and universities, fantastic restaurants and great sporting events and venues. If you’re like me, however, you know that Boston is also an expensive place to call home. Indeed, according to the Expatistan website, Boston comes in at number 8 on the cost of living index for all cities in North America.
For the budget-conscious, this is a top 10 list that has its downside.
Boston Living on the Cheap is your local resource for bargains, deals, freebies, and affordable things to do in the Boston area. You’ll find information on events, restaurants, shopping, things to do, and more.
In addition to firsthand knowledge on how to save a buck, I am a mom, a foodie, a sports fan and an outdoor enthusiast. I enjoy sharing my common sense thoughts, opinions, ideas, and more about saving money in the Boston area – a welcome enterprise given how expensive living in and around Boston can be.
I post the deals as I find them. But keep in mind, prices and promotions are subject to change at any time and without notice. If you think something sounds too good to be true, check with the merchant before you head out.
Boston Living on the Cheap participates in affiliate programs. That’s how the bills get paid! Though the site earns a tiny bit of revenue if you buy a deal through one of our affiliate links, I retain full editorial control over the deals posted. I limit affiliate links to the types of deals I routinely post anyway.
