This summer I’m guest posting for YNAB which I previously waxed poetically about for 1,000 words over here. It’s a lot like Car Talk, but it’s just me talking about my budget and has nothing to do my cars. Maybe it has less in common with Car Talk than I thought. RIP Tom Magliozzi.
Nowhere does autumn quite like New York. As summer’s oppressive heat and bog-like conditions fade into memory, that’s when we finally hit the sweet spot on the Fahrenheit scale—perfect weather for the holy trilogy of sweaters, light jackets and open-toed shoes. I imagine this is what Northern California feels like all of the time. And it’s the best time of year for a tour! Join me?
A day out in New York can add up pretty quickly. It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting, or a full-time resident, it seems like the second you hit the pavement, dollars start falling out of your pocket. Not on my budget. To avoid unnecessary expenditures, it’s important to plan your day/night on the town. All those Ubers add up.
Luckily, planning is right up there with budgeting, as one of my favorite ways to spend solo Friday nights at home. If you’re considering a visit, I went ahead and planned the biggest (and cheapest!) day in the city that I could—full of food, sights, culture and adventure—all for under $26. I’d be a pretty great travel agent, IMHO, if that job still existed.
Sound good? Full post over at YNAB! Everyone’s friendly neighborhood budgeting software.
