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 invest 6% in of my paycheck into my 401k, and my company matches me at 3%. I believe it was Suze Orman who said you should always invest at least as much as your company will match you, and since 3% is not that good, I've doubled it. If you want to check the status of your earnings, and learn a bit too, check out Fidelity's site After seeing what I've earned in the last 2 1/2 years I now realize a 401k will give me nada towards retirement.
