NYC for Less: Hit up Lifebooker!
Forget Facebook… the new site eating up my lunch hour is Lifebooker. Acting like a personal concierge service, the site offers deals on the city’s hottest spa and beauty services (up to 50% off!) and allows you to browse and book appointments online.
For those of you who aren’t die hard loyal to your hairdresser, you can do a search for all salons offering women’s haircuts and compare prices without having to do the awkward price check call in a fake voice to keep them from thinking you’re cheap (no? Just me?) Then you can schedule your appointment time while it’s still in your head, as opposed to scratching fragments of reminders on post-its and finding them in the bottom of your bag 2 weeks later (again…just me?) I can’t tell you how much time I save by going on and booking everything I need for the month at one time.
It’s not all primping, either. In recent daily emails they’ve advertised discounts on classes for everything from sushi-making to rock climbing–haven’t quuuuuite gotten around to that yet, but it sounds exciting. All in all, it’s a great way to experience the “fun stuff” in the city without depleting your “rainy day” treat fund. Now if only I could find a way to book my dates on there…
