@seakelps I'm thinking the same! Also an '11...
@cryptolect This is a great trick.
Lots of seeing music and seeing friends this weekend. $82. Weekend was a lot less expensive than expected because I decided not to renew my Citibike membership. I don't like by a docking station before and so am not sure how much I would use it. I didn't see Snowpiercer but I did see Boyhood on Sunday and oh wow would I recommend that movie.
Free concerts tonight and tomorrow but that means probably a few snacks/drinks while I listen...let's say $30. Gardening/world cup on Sunday! Want to try to watch in an Argentinian spot if I can find a place. Probably another $30. Throwing in another $15 for groceries etc and $100 for renewing my citibike membership (eep!) Estimating $175.
I love love thrifting and often start out hunting by feel - you can tell what's cotton/silk/nice wool and quickly pass by all the polyester without wasting time on it. Particularly good for the by-the-pound-type places. I once I got a a nice calvin klein shift I used to interview for my current job. :)
This was great.
@aetataureate agreed. it seems like there are lots of less extreme options between living in office and paying $1000 for rent.
My 1 thing: apply for loans to fill in the funding cracks for grad school this fall. eeeeeeep & exciting.

@TheDoctorsCompanion @Rhinoceranita thanks guys! I'm not trying to leave New York actually - I grew up here and like being around my family. Just idly curious how much it costs for people to get around in a car.

I'd be interested to read an article about relative transportation costs around the US. Sometimes I feel like I'm just throwing money in the trash by the bag by paying for rent in NY but then I console myself with the thought that at least my metro card is less than a cost of owning a car/driving a car to work everyday. I've never actually owned a car though...so I don't know if that's true. Like a what-is-everyone paying for transpo along the lines of a rental history?
