Ok so this is one of the rare entries where I am going to simply just give life advice on being a young college grad in LA. If you are between 22 and 29 you may wanna listen to this because this effects you. Anyone get the joke??
So, what I quickly learned is that LA gets wicked expensive, wicked fast, even more so that NY. LA is a city with decent public transportation, but the majority of the time you are going to be driving around the city, requiring you to add gas and parking to your expenses. This leaves very little room in the budget for eating out. Recently, though, I discovered a new appreciation for coupons. One of my favorite places has become El Pollo Loco. They give you 1/2 a dozen coupons upon checking out mostly for 4-5 dollars off your meal. I ended up paying $1.25 for my chicken salad. Any deals you can find like this in LA are golden.
If anyone had any other suggestions please feel free to comment. I’m sure all the other struggling young adults in the city would greatly appreciate your suggestions.
Save and Enjoy!
