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.

Fa ra-ra-ra Rah! ra-ra ra Rahhh!

It's getting to be that time of year. You need to have the best gifts for the least amount of money and that is our specialty.

My clever giftgiving tip for the day: Subsidized gift subscriptions. Give your favorite psuedo-intellectual 6 months of The New York Times. His female neighbors will think he is deep and literate. For the fashion bug, a $12.99 1-year subscription to Vogue says I love you over and over (especially with the big fat Fall issue.) Make sure they want it, though. Feel it out.
Shake out mags in lobbies for their in-book offers. The online "deals" are ripoffs!
