Let’s not beat around the bush here — I am no money expert. Numbers tend to make my head spin. My math SAT score was nothing to write home about, and I really, really like oat milk in my coffee — helloooo .50 extra cents!
After moving to New York City from where I attended college in Maine, I realized that all the brand-new awesome things at my fingertips (like museums, concerts, and bars that stayed open past 11pm) were also expensive. Pretty quickly, I figured out that if I was going to live my life in the big apple to it’s fullest, I was in need of a serious budget rebrand.
Lucky for me, I have some pretty wonderful, money savvy friends — and with their guidance (and some of my very own trial and error) I’ve honed my saving skills, cut loads of extraneous costs, and best of all, learned cheap ways to treat myself. Here’s what has worked for me and some of my pals. We by no means have all the answers — but we are really, really trying!
