I live on $100 a month – I dramatically cut back on expenses in five key ways but can still treat myself
A TIKTOK user has revealed how he dramatically reduced his expenses in five key ways throughout the month of November.
Frankie Hoy, a 27-year-old comedian living in a van in New York City, has been leaving off $100 over the past 28 days.5Frankie Hoy has been leaving off $100 over the past monthCredit: TikTok/@frankie_hoy 5Frankie is a 27-year-old comedian living in a van in New York CityCredit: TikTok/@frankie_hoy
And even with his minimal spending habits, Frankie has still been able to occasionally treat himself.
Frankie has been posting videos documenting every day of his minimalistic journey and it seems he's been successful by living in his van, working at a catering company to makeup for his unpaid comedy gigs, "hopping the turnstile" to take the subway, not buying drinks at bars, and eating free or cheap food.
Living life on a budget doesn't come easy, but Frankie has been living it up in his "humble abode," also known as his van.Read More on Saving MoneyPOUND-MANIA I’m a budgeting mum here’s some of the best Christmas deals in Poundland FESTIVE FINDS I’m a budgeting fan, here’s the new stuff you need to get in B&M right now
He admits in some of his videos that he often works on his comedy sketches inside his residence-on-wheels.
And sometimes he is seen eating inside the van with his friends.
But when it comes to staying clean, Frankie showers at his local gym, which appears to be a planet fitness somewhere in New York City.SIDE HUSTLE
It appears that Frankie's job at a catering company makes up for his time spent doing unpaid comedy gigs.Most read in MoneySPECIAL THANK YOU Surprise bonus worth $1,000 available to Americans in time for holidayEXTRA CASH My Google side hustle makes over $300,000 a monthFOR NOTHING 7 payments up to $2,000 being sent out in the New Year & how to get themHOLIDAY CASH One-time $400 relief check going out to Americans now
His job, which requires him to dress up in black slacks and a dress shirt, seems to help him save money as he is often fed during work and seen filling up on free water from a sink.'HOPPING TURNSTILE'
Frankie seems to travel across the city often to perform in various comedy gigs, so he's likely saved a lot of money "hopping the turnstile" to take the subway.
For example, riding the subway just once a day for 28 days at $2.75 a ride would total a whopping $77.NO DRINKS AT BAR
Frankie has admitted to noticing his pants are fitting better, likely because he has stopped drinking beer and ordering drinks at bars.
His beverage of choice over the past 28 days has been instant coffee and free water.EATING FREE OR CHEAP FOOD
One major way Frankie is able to save money is by using the "Too Good To Go" mobile app which allows customers to buy and collect surprise bags of food at a cheaper price.
On one of the days, he purchased food through the app and ended up with about a dozen chicken wings.
Frankie also often starts off his day with instant coffee.
Other times he indulged in bites of his friend's loaf of bread, which came at no cost to him.
And he often eats Maruchan noodles, a ramen soup brand that is very affordable and just needs to be cooked in boiling water.
In one shopping trip, he bought six packets of noodles for $3.58.
He has also been seen eating a free cupcake given to him by a friend, free catered meals at the catering hall he works at which sometimes offers him delicious leftovers from events and free chicken wings given to him by a friend who doesn't eat meat.
The US Sun reached out to Frankie for comment on his money-saving ways but did not receive an immediate reply.
And in response to his videos going viral and gaining more than 100,000 followers on TikTok, Frankie told NBC News: "When I was getting 50,000 [views] I got anxious.
“I was like: ‘Oh, my God. I don’t know any of these people.’ And then it became hundreds of thousands, and I got anxious again.Read More on The US SunOUCH, KIM Pete Davidson has ‘met his intellectual match’ in Emily RatajkowskiSICK PLOT 'Catfish' slaughtered family in triple murder after teen refused to send nudes
"It’s just been a roller coaster of being anxious and then not being anxious, but most of the response has been positive.”
As of today, Frankie has made it to day 28 of life on a $100 budget and he started out the day with $5.96.5Frankie has gone some days without spending any moneyCredit: TikTok/@frankie_hoy 5He has also saved money by eating free food at his catering jobCredit: TikTok/@frankie_hoy 5Frankie has saved money by 'hopping turnstiles'Credit: TikTok/@frankie_hoy Topics
