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.

Oink! Oink!

You may have seen some ads on T.V. for a new site called (they are pretty hilarious) featuring an actual dude dressed like a pig named Benjamin Bankes (who is so hip he has a MySpace page). Well, I checked the thing out and, beyond have a great name, it's actually pretty useful. It's all part of a campaign by the AICPA called 360 Degrees of Financial Literary designed to help you start saving at any stage of your life, and have simple articles like Establishing a Budget - wow, so easy!

But my favorite part of personal finance sites - the calculator - is way cool on feedthepig. For example, check out the lunch calculator (if you spend $10 on lunch every day after 4 years you'll have spent about $7,500 - DAMN!)
And when you visit be sure to keep your sound on...
