Useful if you are young and just starting out in a big city. I don't live in such a big city, but I still found some useful tips in there. If you want to save money on haircuts, the author tells you how to go a whole year without one.
I enjoyed this book. I recently moved into a new apartment, and it gave me some great ideas for decorating for less. It's full of fabulous new thoughts on living in a chic way but spending much less. I reccomend it!
