What and why

What is on everyone's mind, when it comes down to it? Money. The ultimate voyeuristic pleasure? Knowing how much people have, and how they spend it.
I am a mid-30s single woman living in Brooklyn, NY. I will be using this site to anonymously tell the world exactly how much money I make, what I spend it on, how I budget, whether I feel rich or poor, where I fit into the class continuum, etc, etc. Since real estate is a current obsession, and an outrageously huge proportion of most New Yorkers' budget, I'll be spending a lot of time on my search for an affordable apartment to buy.
This will not be a "how to pinch pennies" advice column. I believe in saving for a rainy day, but I also believe in having a little fun, and allowing oneself some luxuries while living within ones means. I hope this site will help people think about their own finances and how to live well on a budget, and I hope readers will write back with information about how they spend their hard-earned cash.
