From Broadway to Target, some wonderful ways to save money and remain chic and stylish as well as satiating your appetite and your daily dose of art. 


1. Dashlane

A safe place to store all of the passwords you need on any given occasion to live and maneuver through our technological daily lives. Accessible on your computer or your smart phone, Dashlane is a free option to keep your online wallet secure. You can also program it to know which passwords to autofill. Certainly something to look into if you have to keep reseting your password, which I am guilty of more often than I’d like to admit.

2. POACHit

As savvy shoppers, looking for the discount is often just knowing where to look for that coveted coupon code. Use the POACHit bookmarklet to save items you want to purchase should the price be reduced. When a coupon becomes available, an email will appear in your inbox alerting you to the sale opportunity. 


3. The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style: Secrets to Shopping Cheap and Looking Chic by Lilliana Vazquez 

Next month (November 5th), budget fashion blogger Lilliana Vazquez (founder of the blog Cheap Chicas) will release her first book The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style which focuses on how to dress stylishly without breaking the bank. A wonderful resource, I was able to get my hands on an advance copy for review, and I was impressed with her specific details – where to shop, information on flash sale sites, and helpful quizzes that will guide you toward the best places to shop on your budget. 


4. Betrayal

One of my favorite experiences when it comes to art is experiencing live theater. Whether it’s the Broadway stage or the theater district in London, being part of a shared experience with a select few as the gifted actors display their talents without the aid of editing is exhilarating. One play that has been creating quite a buzz in the Broadway community this season is Betrayal starring real life couple Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz and directed by award winning director Mike Nichols. Currently in previews, the play officially opens today, and at this point is scheduled to run through February 2014 at the Ethel Barrymore theater. Click here for tickets. 


5. Target Threshold Wood and Brass Finish Bar Cart

The Threshold decor line from Target continues to offer stylish furniture and details for your home that won’t break your budget. Just in time for the holiday entertaining season, no matter what size your entertaining space is, this bar cart is perfect for displaying the available drinks for your guests as they arrive.
