Living in New York City is amazing, but it’s not as easy or glamorous as the movies make it seem. Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw would not be able to afford her spacious Manhattan apartment on a columnist’s salary, let alone afford all those shoes!
Drinks every night? No way!
Taking a cab everywhere…doubtful.
And while I wish I could take a page from Ms. Bradshaw’s book and use my oven to store clothing, the price of eating out every night means I have to actually use the oven for its intended purpose.
But it’s still possible to have some Bradshaw worthy fun on a more Average Joe salary, and that’s what this blog is all about!
Just a girl trying to live it up in the big city with very little funds.
