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.

Day 3: The Beat Goes On

It's day three and I'm still in the triple digits -- how awesome am I! Spent $.75 on a peach yesterday because I was sick of eating the cucumbers and tomatoes I bought at the farmer's market and have been incorporating into my lunches mostly out of pure guilt over letting them go bad. (Don't worry, I am also eating real food. Bought about four chicken breasts that I cooked all at once. Have had chicken salad, chicken sandwich, chicken omelet.)

A few challenges yesterday:
1. Went out to get a mid-afternoon coffee. Took a walk instead.
2. Went to get a manicure. Awkwardly walked in and then out again.
3. Scheduled lunch with a friend for Friday. This I will commit to. I can spare $10 by then!

Going to the BF house tonight, which means dinner on him! (If I cook it, of course.)

Budget: $175.75
