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.

Online Shopping Tips from a Cheap Chick

These tips for online shoplifting - I mean shopping - were sent in by a CityBroke reader. Thanks, K!
How to maximize an online purchase:
1) First check to see if you can shop thorough your credit card’s rewards program—often you’ll get more than the usual 1-for-1 in reward points when you go through your card’s shopping network, and tons of great retailers participate.
2) Don’t have a promotion code for a discount? Before submitting your order, do a quick Google search for “retailer + coupon code.” I did this for Target once and saved 10% on a furniture order, which was like finding $50 on the street.
3) Pool orders with friends to take advantage of free shipping.
