living cheap and affordably in chicago



A place for Chicago and Chicago area locals to chat about cheaper alternatives for fun, food, places to live, ways of living, advertise free events... etc.

No real rules.
Just be polite!

And if you're posting regarding a place, or event, please try to be as complete as possible with an adress and means of contacting the place (it's especially helpful if you can include a web site!)
