OK, it's time to get real. With buying gifts for Christmas or Chanukah or Festivus (well, not really Festivus, as that would be a contradiction), our bank account is as empty as our consumerist souls.
Whether it's picking up shitty $10 Starbucks gift cards for people we don't even like or lavishly treating ourselves, our weekend budget needs to tighten up - a lot. To help ourselves and you, our dear readers, out, here is a list of five amazing things worth doing for dirt cheap this weekend.
