Name:  Anna G.


Age:  26


Occupation:  Program Associate for a non-profit


What neighborhood do you live in?:  Within an uncertain borderline between Bushwick and Williamsburg, in Brooklyn.


Best money saving tip:  Don’t eat dinner on weekdays, and keep crazy tabs on your checking account.


What do you refuse to spend money on?:  Video games and haircuts.


Most expensive thing you’ve ever bought:  Probably a purse or a broker’s fee.


How’d that feel?:  Good at the time, terribly stupid in the long run.


Favorite cheap eat:  Falafel pitas or $3 tacos at the taco truck in Union Pool.  In CA, though, burritos for sure (NY burritos SUCK!)


Favorite dive bar:  Bushwick Country Club or Mona’s.  Do those count?


Best deal you’ve ever gotten:  $40 for an external hard drive with a bunch of music on it, just after I had my computer stolen!


Favorite free thing to do:  Lay out at the park, or get into the MoMA for free with my CUNY ID.


If you woke up a millionaire, what’s the first thing you’d buy?:  If I wasn’t paying off debts, the first thing I’d do is buy an apartment.


Despite not having money, do you still love your life?:  Yes.  No matter how many times I get broken into or mugged, I’ve still managed to have the time of my life here.


Do you own my book?:  Yes! Both of them!


Best hangover cure:  Sleeping, water, and brunch.


Are you a hipster?:  Not acknowledging your hipsterness is the first sign of being a hipster.  However, despite living in Bushwick/Williamsburg, I’m pretty certain I’ve maintained at least some integrity.
