There are certain luxuries I sometimes afford myself that really add up quickly. I’ve already begun to moderate these things since I quit smoking, which is saving me a lot of money, but now it’s time to go the extra mile so I can save up for my departure from NYC and get accustomed to living minimally. Exceptions will be made for business meetings.
- Cabs/car services — Subway only for me from now on, which means I need to change my late night habits.
- Gel manicures
- Eating out
- Coffee shop coffee
- Fancy cocktails
- New clothes, even new vintage clothes. EVEN Black Milk leggings. >:(
Actually, now that I think about it, this is where the entirety of where my money goes outside of rent, utilities (including online services), groceries, electronics, metro cards, and the occasional yoga class. I WILL SURVIVE.
