Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

I Will Never (Ok Rarely) Spend Money On in New York:
Taxi Cabs: Walk or train it and use that extra $20 to buy yourself something that lasts.
Wine over $8 a glass: Really, if you’re going to spend cash on wine, at least go for the $100 bottle. It's all or nothing.
Brand-Name Toilet Paper: Yes, I've seen this. And you can shove this up your you-know-what (literally).

The Movies: Just go to Wok-and-Roll on Flastbush in Brooklyn – you’ll get what you need there.
Pizza over $3 a Slice: Although I learned last night that in the Village this is not possible...
Lunch: Ok, I’m cheap, but honestly how hard is it to pack a lunch?
Designer Clothes at Full Price: Sample sales, baby.
Water over $4 a Bottle: Anyway, we should all start drinking more tap water. It has fluoride.
Concerts Over $100: No one is worth that! (Ok, a few bands are but not many…)
To be Continued...
