Buns of Steal

I like to think of myself as thrifty, but Julia Newman takes frugality to a whole 'nother level. As The Consumerist writes:

With the exception of parking and affordable homes, there's a lot of everything in New York City... especially gyms. With this surplus of workout spots, they are all fighting to get a sweaty, muscled grip on your wallet. A 24-year-old law student in the Big Apple not only saw an opportunity to exploit this competition and score some free workouts, she's also blogging about her attempt to make it through the entire year without paying for the gym.
Julia has snagged free passes to Equinox, David Barton Gym, Crunch, and a bunch of other places, and is blogging about her exploits on Buns of Steal.

I wish I'd thought of this when I was a cash-poor law student. Instead, I was busy stuffing my face while watching reruns of "The Simpsons." Good times.
