Living in Hoboken, Jersey City, or New York City can be pretty, pretty, pretttty expensive. In fact, if you spend just $27 per day on random things, it equals spending $10,000 frivolous dollars per year [insert: mind blown emoji]. That’s why Ashley Feinstein of The Fiscal Femme is on Tea on the Hudson, to chat all things money, budgets {spoiler alert: she hates that word!}, free or inexpensive things to do in Hudson County, and what a “sinking fund” is — plus why you should be using one. She’s the author of The 30-Day Money Cleanse and has been featured in the New York Times, CNBC, Glamour, and is a Hoboken Girl guest contributor on all things finances. If you’ve ever been stressed about money or thought “am I the only one that feels like this?” — then this episode is for you.

Later in the show, Shawn Engel of Witchy Wisdoms is back talking about crystals, and spills the tea on the four crystals you should definitely keep in your work space for good vibes.

We also share the latest news in Hoboken and Jersey City + beyond, our Hudson Hero/Zero, and some getaway and hidden gems, and the non-profit you should consider donating to this week.
