My boyfriend and I were so fortunate to win those tickets to North Coast Music Festival; we were able to close the summer on a bang by seeing some of our most favorite musical groups in a hot, sweaty group of hundreds of other people. Including Snoop-a-loop!
Point being, don't let low funds stop you from having fun. Explore your city! Find those free days, scour those websites for the best deal, find your favorite restaurant recipe and make it at home for half the price. (Side Note: Yellow Tail makes a decent sparkling rose that has a re-sealable cap (what!) and a bottle is less than $10! It was my best kept secret this summer.) Enjoy your time, seize every moment; you deserve it.
