There's a special joy in doing, eating, drinking or wearing something fabulous that you've hardly paid a thing for. If you know where to look, you can get by in the city for a lot less than you'd think. Sadly, the only thing we can't help you with is rising rental prices. 

Hot tip: when looking for places to eat, you're guaranteed to save money at these BYO restaurants or by eating a big breakfast to tide you over until dinner.
