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 Guess it's Good to Give, Too

After you've busted your ass saving your dollars, it's good to give a little back, too. A great place to donate money in any increment (seriously, even just $20) is Modest Needs. The goal of Modest Needs is to stop poverty before it begins by helping those in need avoid the slippery slope of going broke. You see who your money is going to, and for what. (For example, a new bathtub, or hospital bill.) And Modest Needs is totally legit, earning the highest possible charity ratings from both Charity Navigator and the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance. Even if you're just giving to feel better about yourself, do it!
