From the Editor-in-Chief
After several years of living in Boston post-college on a meager, nonprofit salary, I began scouring Boston’s newspapers, websites, and bookstores for information on how to live on a tight budget. Frustrated by the time it took to find ANY information, I decided to develop a comprehensive guide for those looking to slow spending and save money.
To ensure this guidebook details all the coolest and cheapest places in the city, I’ve enlisted the help of financially strapped recent graduates and journalists from Boston University, Boston College, Harvard University, and Brandeis University, as well as graphic design and cartography specialists.
The guidebook, Broke in Boston: A Guide to Living Cheap in the City, covers all of Boston’s major areas, including Boston Proper, Brookline, Cambridge, and Somerville.
