What's Your Best Tip For Living On A Budget In NYC?

Step 1: Skip Starbucks and brew your own coffee at home.

There's just no getting around the fact that New York City is stupidly expensive.


However, living in the Big Apple on a little budget is not at all impossible.

For example, if you frequently take the subway, buying a 30-day unlimited ride pass can save you considerable cash over the pay-per-ride option.

And, instead of dropping $4 on coffee on your way to work each morning, you can brew your own at home before heading out the door.

And, if you're looking for some fun, check the web for free events — concerts, movies, plays, museums, etc. — around the city.
