    Look into Mt. Juliet. They have great schools and great shopping. Although, they are a bit higher in rent. If you are looking to rent a house in that area it will be between $1000-1500 mo.
    Also, Lebanon is a bit cheaper and just down the road. You will be looking at $800-1300 in the area for a house.
    Use Craigslist to look. If you decide to look in those areas feel free to email me and I can let you know what areas in Lebanon are good. Pretty much any area in Mt. Juliet is great for families.
    Best of luck!
    Oh, where are you moving from?

    We're in SE Nashville, along Percy Priest Lake and love it here, tho that's a tit of a drive to Madison. There are nice spots in Donelson too. Not sure about schools though - mine stay home.
    Absolutely affordable in many spots around town. We have a mortgage, one car note, 2 hungry boys.. and I was just exclaiming to my husband the other day that if we ever needed I could totally support us on an LPN wage. Life is cheap here, and it's a really really great town!
    Also, I have a close friend just on the other side of the river in Old Hickory - it's affordable and nice over there too. She's technically in Wilson county so her daughter is in a nice school.

    Good luck and welcome!

    Look into Spring Hill, TN. It's right below Franklin, and VERY nice and commuter friendly to Nashville. I moved here from NJ. Nashville has tons of option, lots of hospital and medical centers to choose from! Good luck!
