So you want to live like a rockstar? Many of us wonder what it would be like to live like the wealthy, but unfortunately for us, we don’t have the money to do so. But don’t worry, here are four clever ways to live the good life on a non-rockstar budget.
Groupon is an online marketplace with a large amount of deals for travel, spa services, products and hotels. In many instances, you can get 50 per—cent off original prices, like a 30-minute signature facial from Pure Image Skin & Body for just $25 or a stay at Design Suites in Miami Beach for $69 per night. Groupon and competitor Living Social are also becoming outlets for popular recording artists such as Wiz Khalifa to sell concert tickets. Khalifa likes the idea of selling tickets through discount marketplaces because he believes it’s beneficial for those who are out of the loop.
Purchase wines that are on sale and online. Stores such as Total Wine have prices as low as $1.99 for their wine selections. Total Wine is in select locations, and you can choose to have your wine shipped to you or picked up at your local store. Wine case discounts are available daily, and you can save 10 percent when you purchase 12-plus identical 750 ml bottles.

For instance, a pair of black threaded pattern canvas fabric peep toe shoes will cost you just $0.99 as will black faux-leather slouchy knee-high boots.

Just remember: You will need to be really flexible with your schedule to get these discounted deals.
