Fiscal Fridays: The practical guide to saving cash this holiday weekend

Everyone in NY knows just how expensive life can be. From rent, food, travel and tax, little expenses add up quickly. Well, we wanted to share a few in-house tips to help save a little cash to spend on better opportunities.

1. Cancel those trial subscriptions you sign up for: If you’re like me and you ALWAYS forget to cancel them- use a pre-paid gift card.  If you use a card with a low balance, well, you’ll thank us later.

2. Set an iPhone alarm to close bar tabs: Seriously, it sounds weird, but a few late-night alarms really help. If you listen to it (key!) you’ll save money, a hangover, and possibly your dignity. Because as your mother said- “Nothing good happens after 2 A.M.”  Below is mine:
