Cheap housing for young families

You don’t want to totally give-up on those Friday nights out or your Thursday after-hours, but babysitters cannot always stay late in the night, so it helps if you’re in an area close to restaurants and theatres. Price? You could put the extra couple of bucks you’re saving on rent monthly into your child’s college savings plan.
