If you happen to be in the New York or Boston Area, we have a couple of things that you can do for only $10 or less that won’t take up too much of your time or energy. Have a look at what your city has to offer for only a 10 spot in today’s Dollars & Sense below!
Have An Entree At Esperanto:
Esperanto Is a Brazilian & South American restaurant located in the heart of the Lower East Side of New York City. The venue boasts an intimate, candlelit setting with live samba music. In order to kick off the welcoming of their new chef and a completely new menu, the eatery will be offering every entree on the menu for $9.95 every Tuesday from here on out. You can definitely take a date down there for a good time, or just treat yourself to the food and the live music for just a $10 spot. You can’t beat that.

Attend A Poetry Slam:
If you are in the Boston area, why not spend an evening at a poetry slam? You can participate in the open mic or just sit back and enjoy the featured poet. The Boston Poetry Slam takes place at Cantab Lounge in Cambridge every Wednesday night at 8 p.m. And with a cover charge of only $3 you will definitely get your money’s worth and still have money left over to buy yourself a drink or even invite someone else along to enjoy the show with you.

Financial Tip Of The Day:
Instead of throwing out some damaged clothing, repair it instead.
Don’t toss out a shirt because of a broken button – sew a new one on with some closely-matched thread. Don’t toss out pants because of a hole in them – put in a patch of some sort and save them for times when you’re working around the house. Simple sewing can be done by anyone – it just takes a few minutes and it saves a lot of money by keeping you from buying new clothes when you don’t really need to.
