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.

Losing Your Smarts

SmartyPig, the amazing online bank straight from the corn fields of Iowa, isn't ponying up as much as they once were. When the online bank, which is like Orange ING for Dummies, first launched it was offering over 3% interest. Now the APY just dropped to 2.01%. They blog about it here. As we keep learning over and over, if it's too good to be true, it is. (Although the pig is still higher than almost all the other online savings -- so we will love our Mid-western friends.)
