Join us in this exciting journey where we’ll show you how you can find more luxury for your money.
Our industrial world is churning out products with dizzying speed, and the smashing marketing and the popular social media lay such a powerful push on us that we many times feel we are not trendy enough, not gorgeous enough, our car is too old, our television is too small, etc.
You might just run through your days and weeks following your everyday routine, buying and consuming the same old
With our 15 brilliant ideas of affordable luxuries you can get the life of kings. Sit back for a minute, close your eyes, imagine what you really long for. Ready? Let’s start the game.
1. Dine on oysters and champagne at a fine oyster bar
How about having a romantic night shucking and sipping oysters with a glass of bubbling champagne in a fine restaurant? Just skip your Venti latte for a week, and you already can afford it. Just imagine: isn’t it better sometimes to have the morning coffee in bed, at home, then dress up fancy at the end of the week and collect some memorable moments? It sounds a win-win for me.
2. Enjoy a caviar in a restaurant
If number 1 idea touched your soul – and your taste buds -, you will like this one, too. This is again a simple switch that is feasible for most of us: instead of spending money on meal deals, prepare your office lunch at home for 3 weeks. It can be a light, 2-minutes salad – it is time anyway to get back in Summer shape. This will save you $46, which covers your luxurious caviar dinner at Olma caviar bar. Enjoy!
3. Have a tee off with friends at Split Rock golf course
Would you enjoy a posh Afternoon off with your besties at an elegant golf course? If you spend your money wisely, such exciting and unique opportunities will open in your life. Our advice is this time: forget the tempting Powerball tickets for a couple of months, put each coin you saved in your little piggy bank, and soon you might find yourself at the Split Rock golf course, chatting and chilling with your friends.
4. Go for afternoon tea at the Ritz
You probably thought you cannot afford Ritz, right? Try this challenge, and get your well-deserved luxury at the end. Cancel your Sky subscription for 3.5 months. You’ll have the internet, so you will survive.
After the third month is over deluxe yourself, and enjoy a wonderful Afternoon at Ritz Carlton, Central Park, sipping Champagne and thumbing through the pages of
5. Enjoy a night at the opera
This challenge is one that some of my friends have already tested and its success was just epic. The atmosphere of New York State Teather and the opera itself left them speechless. It definitely isn’t a cheap way of getting entertained, but it’s so much worth it. All that you have to do is switch 6 trips to Chipotle to homemade meals, and don’t forget to feed your piggy bank every time you save.
6. Hire a limousine in Manhattan
How about swapping your gym subscription to jogging in a local park for 1.5 months? You’ll enjoy fresh air, and at the end of the second month, you already will have the money to hire a limousine for an hour in Manhattan. Invite 10 of your loved ones, and fill up the night with laughs and joy.
7. Visit a Michelin Star restaurant
OK, this one is really just so simple and worth it. Have you ever sumed up how much money you spend on cinema tickets? Not to mention the popcorn and Coke. With an easy switch to home-cinema for a couple of months, you will be able to afford an extraordinary culinary night at Dovetail NYC, one of the most popular Michelin Star restaurants.
8. A ticket for the NY Knicks at MSG
Have you ever dreamt about getting into Madison Square Garden for a NY Knicks game? We have a super-simple idea of how you can make it happen: skip ordering pizza for a short while. Whenever you feel like having an XL Domino’s pizza, put that money into your piggy bank, 7 times in a row. For this swap you will be thankful for a life-time.
9. Stay at a 5* hotel in New York
Gentlemen, this is the best idea to surprise your wife. Stop drinking beer – don’t worry, just for like two months, and then book a gorgeous hotel room in one of New York’s 5* hotels. You will hit two birds with one stone: your wife will be amazed about your new drinking habits, and she will just melt when you announce the surprise hotel room. I think, in the end, you will receive your reward, too.
10. Eat at the world’s most expensive restaurant
We live once, why couldn’t we experience the best of it? If you can manage to skip a few haircuts, you already will have the money to test the world’s most expensive restaurant in Geneva, Switzerland. A little extra advice to this point: visit that hairdresser before the big
11. Rent a villa in the Caribbeans
In our family, we speak many times about not piling up tons of gifts but celebrate Christmas differently. Now, this idea is exactly what we were looking for. The question is simple: what if you don’t spend $906 on Christmas this year, but rent a villa for the whole family in the Caribbean?
12. Northern lights tour in Canada
Wow, Northern lights are one of the world’s most magical natural phenomena. I am not saying it’s not fun having a night out in New York, but if I’d have to choose between 12 of those parties or a 5 days tour in Canada to view the Northern lights, it is no question I would pick the latter.
13. Fly first class
I very rarely find myself regretting that I am not a smoker, but if I was and I could manage to quit for 12 months then I would have No1: better health, and No2: the $2,870 needed to fly First Class. I’ve heard many people planning that their next long flight is going to be first class, but then checking the upgrade prices most of them change their mind. This win-win can lead you to gather just another experience of a
14. Hire a private jet from NY to Toronto
There are so many amazing places and opportunities for having an extraordinary wedding, like in Hawaii, in Bali or let’s say in Toronto. Why would you spend an average of $8,700 for a single night, when you could spend it on hiring a private jet for 7 of your favorite people that will take you from New York to Toronto and back. Doesn’t it sound much more unique?
15. A journey to the space
The last idea is absolutely the top, in every sense. The price of 4 Chanel Haute Couture dresses can be as high as $240,000. Honestly, wouldn’t it be
The choice is in our hands.
