New York City is extremely expensive to live in. Here are some tips to living in New York on a budget. Order home goods and pantry items online. Try having dates during the day instead of at night because things are usually cheaper. Make sure to research everything you are buying to get the best price. Get rid of stuff you don’t need. Try finding some useful coupons. Buy in bulk for things you use a lot of. Utilize public transportation for a cheap way to get around.
- Instead of going to brick-and-mortar stores for home goods and non-perishable groceries, order them online
- Rather than going out for overly priced bar drinks, try staying in and splitting a bottle of wine instead
- Be smart about shopping, especially by learning to make use of coupons and buying discounted bulk size products when possible
