Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bursting with random tidbits-e.g., bakeries often slash prices heavily right before closing; it's best to shampoo your hair every other day, not daily; blue is supposedly an appetite suppressant, thus not a great color to paint your kitchen-Willdorf's handbook for the chick-lit crowd actually contains lots of useful information. The glossy magazine vet (she's written for Glamour, Worth, Entertainment Weekly and Teen Vogue) provides a cheat sheet for 20-something women dealing with life on a budget in a big city. There are chapters on home decorating (complete with tips on seasonal curbside shopping); body care (suggesting exercises you can do anywhere); food and drink (listing cash-saving dinner options); and clothes (insisting "white tennies over tights are not an option here. Don't even think about it."). Of course, any woman who's lived in New York for a few months already knows the drill, but Willdorf's book may appeal to newbies and those considering making a move to a more urban environment.

    A reviewer

    I recently found this book at a second-hand store. I was expecting much more from it. Unfortunately, what overshadowed everything else for me, being a budget-conscience, bargain-shopping person, was the tip the author gave on buying pillows: splurging $800 for pillows!! That's just plain ridiculous, when you earn less than that in two weeks. Give me great sale prices, garage sales, clearance aisles, racks, and shelves, and thrift stores any day over $800 pillows. I'll make do just fine. I love the store with the bull's eye logo!

    Loved it!

    After having many financial heartaches, a friend gave me this book for Christmas. If only I had read it sooner! I would've saved money and learned some new things along the way.

    Exactly what I was looking for.

    Much like the other reviewer, I am currently living in a small southern town. Moving to a big city is quite scary, and will definentely burn a hole in my pocket. This book has a lot of great information and tips that will help me along the way to success. City Chick tells you how to save a lot of money and still have great things. I don't know what I would do without it. If you're a girl with dreams of moving to any big city, I highly recommend this book to you. Aside from all of the goodies it includes, this book is easy and fun to read. It was hard to put down even for a bathroom break!

    I Love It!

    I'm a small town girl getting ready to move to the big city, again after many failed attempts at trying to make it. This has shown me how to live fabulous without breaking the bank
