This community is a great idea. Here are a couple things that I do...
Some student IDs get you into the Museum of Fine Arts for free (Boston College is one of them).
(Commonwealth and Washington) may seem too classy to be cheap but you can get dinner (2 Tapas), desert, and a drink for roughly $25/pp. The atmosphere is far more elegant than anywhere else that I've been for that price!
Welcome to boston_cheap!
Obviously this community has only one person in it at the moment (me), so responses to one's posts are not going to be numerous at first.
However if you are looking for something cheap, or you have/know something cheap that you'd like to let others know about, I encourage you to post it here on faith, or at the very least join the community and add it to your friends list. If enough people do this, eventually we will build a critical brain-mass and the community will gain some meaning (and posts will receive a response).
Also, in spite of the name I would encourage people to make mosts about anything in the Greater Boston Area
. In addition to Boston itself, this generally includes Arlington, Brookline, Cambridge, Charlestown, Chelsea, Everett, Medford, Somerville, or any place else that's readily accessible by public transportation. Accessibility by public transit isn't a requirement, but it's highly favored!
Thanks very much, and happy posting!
