How To Lower Your Rent
Strategy: Extend your lease—early.While you might not have as much negotiating power if you’re in the middle of a lease, you have more of an edge as you get closer to its end. “A lease is a binding contract, and the landlord has no reason to renegotiate,” says an Upper West Side landlord with 39 years’ experience and more than 250 tenants (who’s asked to remain anonymous lest all his own tenants start haggling). But make the call about two months before the lease ends and you could schmooze your way into a lower rate in exchange for a year or two’s extension. “Most landlords are amenable in this market to longer leases, because it lets them keep tenants they have a relationship with,” he says. Just be sure not to wait until the last minute. Give enough notice to show “that you’re looking to do this from a point of mutual respect” and not trying to pull a fast one.
Strategy: Play the economy card and just ask—many landlords now expect it.When it was time for Jen Winter, 24, to renew the lease on her “teeny tiny little studio” on the Upper West Side, she received a letter from her management company that opened the door to negotiation. “My rent didn’t increase but it didn’t decrease, which I was hoping it would, and it said something along the lines of, ‘If this doesn’t meet your needs, feel free to contact the leasing agent to discuss it,’?” she says. “I think they were prepared for everyone that they’re dealing with to try and negotiate.” Winter made the call, arguing that since rental rates have decreased, she could easily find a similar apartment for less—and had $100 per month knocked off with no push back. Although she’s happy to have received a discount at all, she would’ve liked a steeper one. “I wish I did more market research and made more comparisons,” she says. For those of you contemplating this strategy—even if it’s not so helpfully offered by your own management company—try sites like PadMapper and MyApartmentMap to see what similar apartments in your neighborhood are renting for.

Presented free by Apple and indieWire
To celebrate the spirit of independent film, Apple and indieWire are hosting dozens of free filmmaking events from April 22 to May 3, including a Meet the Filmmaker series. Each night of the festival a different filmmaker (or group of filmmakers) will give a talk, possibly lead a discussion, at the Apple Store’s cozy theatre located at 103 Prince Street. Below are a few features that particularly interested Recession Girl but check out the website for a full listing and other information about free events. Word on the street is that you should show up early.
Spike Lee The Emmy Award-winning and Academy Award-nominated actor, writer, director, and producer speaks to us about Passing Strange, which brings the hit Broadway rock musical to the screen, and Kobe Doin’ Work, his documentary about Kobe Bryant. Both films screen at Tribeca. Wednesday, April 22, 7:00 p.m.

Cadillac Man has been homeless on the streets of New York City for the past 16 years. Over that time he has recorded facts of his daily life in notebooks —those notebooks have been distilled into a memoir, Land of the Lost Souls.

Cadillac Man will be reading, and Will Blythe will be introducing him at Housing Works Bookstore on Wednesday, April 22.

Place: Housing Works Bookstore, 126 Crosby Street
Speaking of hard times and picking up the pieces, Housing Works is a non-profit fighting the twin crisises of HIV/AIDS and homelessness. It also operates a number of fantastic businesses, including an online auction and Recession Girl's favorite thrift stores in the city. These seven upscale thrift boutiques sell high-end vintage clothing, furniture and other treasures to bargain hunters and fashionistas alike....all at Recession Girl prices. A pioneer in Social Enterprise, Housing Works funds invaluable community and social justice work with these profits, including housing, harm reduction, health, case management and legal services for individuals living with HIV and AIDS. Check out the organization's website at http://www.housingworks.org/ for information and addresses but in the meantime, here's a taste of the items up for auction this week out of HW's Chelsea location:
While you may be wary of moving during these shaky economic times, now might be the right the time to snag a deal on an apartment in a neighborhood you didn't think you could afford.
The current recession is greatly affecting the NYC rental market. Many landlords are waiving or paying broker's fees and are even lowering rents to fill their apartments. One recession girl just signed a lease on an apartment in the East Village where the landlord paid the bulk of the broker's fee, and agreed to charge $250 less a month in rent than he was charging the current tenant.
If you are thinking about moving, check out this article: "Finding an Apartment in Manhattan During This Recession Has Never Been Easier" at http://www.prlog.org/10213982-finding-an-apartment-in-manhattan-during-this-recession-has-never-been-easier.html. It gives advice on finding a no-fee apartment rental and money-saving tips for apartment searching.
Once you find your new "steal" of an apartment (quotations added because it is still NYC, people), the fun stuff begins.
As RG introduced last week, the Brooklyn Flea has arrived! It has a plethora of fabulous goods for sale ranging from tasty cheese to antique furniture.
On opening day, RG fell in love with a pair of antique chairs that would be just perfect in her new apartment.
And thanks to her recession-minded best friend, we decided to forego the added expense of delivery, and carry them ourselves to her apartment. While we may have needed to rest on the chairs every couple of blocks or so, we saved the money of a cab or a delivery van and got a great workout!
And everyone passing us on the street assured us that they were worth the effort.

Experts see signs that stress is becoming more common as a result of the economic downturn.
Here's the latest version I have experimented with:
1 20oz canister of mixed nuts (CVS sells a brand that has ZERO peanuts!)
1 bag of organic golden raisins from Trader Joe's
1 bag of organic (brown) raisins from Trader Joe's
1 bag of walnut halves and pieces (also from TJ's)
1 bag of dark chocolate m&m's (gotta get the antioxidants!)
Mix well with a large spoon in a big bowl. There should be enough gorp to fill at least 3 empty nut canisters, so it will last you for weeks...unless you share! Other variations have dark chocolate peanut m&m's, extra almonds, dried cherries or craisins, and even candied ginger.

a $70 investment in a garden will yield $600 in produce for the year.
And now that Spring is here everyone, including the Obamas, is planting a garden.
(Check out the Huffington Post to see which vegetables are "worth a fist bump": http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-patricia-fitzgerald/obama-garden-watch-10-veg_b_183425.html)
However, if you are like RG and live in a NYC apartment, planting a garden in your backyard is not really an option. But many of us have access to rooftops where we can plant (vist: http://www.ehow.com/how_2096350_grow-rooftop-garden.html to learn how).
Other Recessionistas choose to participate in a community garden, where many people can grow enough veggies to sustain them throughout the summer. To find your nearest community garden accepting members, visit: greenguerillas.org

Opens TONIGHT between 6 and 9 at the Thierry Goldberg Projects, in the Lower East Side at 5 Rivington Street. Runs from April 3 to May 3
RecessionGirl is thrilled to see Swetlana Heger's latest performance-based exhibition called Lipstick Economy. As an affordable indulgence for morale-sake, lipstick sales have been noted to increase in trying economic times, indicating that just a little goes a very long way to altering one's look....and ability to weather difficult times. Referencing Leonard Lauder's loose theory in consumer confidence called his "lipstick index," "Heger explores the aesthetics (cosmetic and experiential) of art and self." On the heels, pumps, and sensible flats of the spiraling economy, Heger sets the Thierry Goldberg Gallery alive with her multi-layered dialogue on the economy, gender, and consumerism.....all marked by lipstick traces.
