how to save on everything but shoes in LA

with the freedom and flexibility that comes with my freelancing life, there also comes the financial uncertainty. with that in mind, here are some ways to save on everyday splurges and save the benjamins for the blahniks:

1. free yoga in runyon canyon. every day at the enclosed park near the fuller entrance from 10:30-11:30. during the summer there are sometimes additional classes in the evening.
2. haircuts at rudy's in the standard. yes, there is the silverlake original. and now one on melrose near fred segal. but this one remains my favorite. apparently, the wait is long on the weekends but again, if you have plenty of free time during the week, your wait isn't usually longer than 20 min max. and you can wait it out by the pool. and the haircut is $26 for women, $44 with a blowout. and its good.
3. matinees. one of the best is the los feliz 3 on vermont. matinees are $4.50. and the vista, not far away, is the same. there is nothing better than going to the movies in the middle of the day and getting out when its still light out.

anyone have any other suggestions? email me, or post your comments here.

Not really "saving," but cheap and good--Diddy Reisse in Westwood. Yum!
