by Kenneth Rabasco 05/19/2019

What if you stumbled upon an article that says you could lead a luxurious lifestyle without breaking the bank? Well, think no more. You found it. One often ignored fact is that the definition of luxurious living varies with individuals. Person A could define luxurious living as living a peaceful and comfortable life whereas Person B may interpret it as traveling across the globe, wearing designers, spending the weekend at the spa, visiting expensive restaurants, etc.

Whatever your definition may be, this carefully curated article shows you five simple ways you can live luxuriously without throwing your budget out the door.

  1. Leverage the Benefits that Come with Being a Product Tester. Here is a fun fact – you don't necessarily have to put out lots of cash to wear or use trendy stuff. Product testing allows you to use trendy items such as clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, beauty products, etc. without paying a dime. You register with the company and test these products for free. Simple!
  2. Make Restaurant-Quality Meals at Home. Visiting the restaurant is not a bad idea, but you could ‘bring the restaurant home.’ Okay, don’t get it twisted. ‘Bringing the restaurant home’ by no means indicates ordering for home deliveries, rather It means making the same quality of the meal at home. Yay, you got it! Search over the internet for special ingredients. Put out a few bucks to get a ‘restaurant’ meal of your own. 
  3. Consignment Shops are the Perfect Marketplace. A trick very few lucky ones know, you could buy costly items at budget-friendly prices at consignment shops. Yes, you read right. What's more? They still retain their quality and look brand new. Visit a consignment shop today, and you will be glad you did.
  4. Find Simple Ways to Cut Back on Travel Cost. To many out there, traveling is a sure way of living a luxurious life. Well, that's indisputable because traveling costs can quickly add up. To enjoy luxury without breaking your budget, leverage cash-back apps that give you back a few bucks for using their app. Traveling in groups also help to reduce the ridiculous travel cost. You get to share the bill with your travel partners and share beautiful moments with them too. You should totally check it out.
  5. Leverage Deals on Wellness Centers. It is no news that spa treatment and trendy fitness classes can cost a fortune. But, like every other thing in life, there is a way around it. Coupon sites usually feature deals from local spas and fitness centers. Be sure to leverage on these deals to get you into a wellness center. Who cares how got there?

Professional Associations & Designations Hudson Gateway Multiple Listing Service Subscriber, Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors Member, New York State Association of Realtors Member, National Association of Realtors Member Community Involvement Member of the Rotary Club of Hartsdale - Greenburgh Education Pace University - Bachelor of Business Administration Testimonials I will never refer to Bosco as my realtor, he’s a trusted friend. I met Bosco 6 months after loosing my husband of 11 years. I have two daughter’s Jennifer and Kylie. I didn’t need this big house in Eastchester. The upkeep was just too much for me. Bosco helped me sell my home and I purchased a townhouse. It was important for me to keep my girls in the Eastchester school district. I will be forever grateful to my new friend. He still calls from time to time to check in on us. Thanks Bosco. Karen Schwartz You will not be disappointed with all the work that Ken aka Bosco does for his clients. I was able to sell my house very quickly with his knowledge of what sells a house. From the front door throughout the house he noted what had to be removed and changed. He understands what people want to see in purchasing a house. With his help I was able to sell my house for $15,000 over the asking price. You won't go wrong with Bosco looking out for you. I can't thank him enough. I learned a lot from him, he knows the business. I will be forever grateful. Helen Izzo My girlfriend and I were looking to relocate to Westchester. We were first-time homebuyers and Bosco helped us with every step of the process and helped us find our dream home. He made sure to understand what we wanted. He made himself available when we had questions. He is reliable, very knowledgeable, and a true professional. Debora Flores I had the great pleasure of working with Bosco this past winter-spring on my first home purchase. Prior to Bosco I had a bad experience with another realtor who was unfortunately very unresponsive, lacked effort and ultimately not helpful. Thankfully my wishes were answered when I met Bosco because he was the complete opposite. Bosco doesn't waste time, he's extremely on top of everything. When I expressed interest in a listing, he'd book a visit within 1-2 days of me highlighting my home. He understands how aggressive the Westchester market is; good homes were snatched quickly. Moreover, I work in Manhattan, so I could only see places late at night, 7:30pm onward. He didn't mind visiting listing with me late a night. He worked around my schedule, not his. Being a first-time buyer, I had no experience with all the complexities of co-ops. It was great working with Bosco because he knows so much. He sits on a co-op board himself, so he has first-hand knowledge of what co-op communities are looking for. He successfully guided me on all the paperwork I need to paint myself in the best light to have my offer accepted and achieve board approval. Bosco's super passionate about home buying and I think that's the type of realtor you need to successfully land a great home. His combined passion and experience makes him a great realtor in my opinion. He's my realtor for life now, because I know he'll provide the best service. Ben DiChiara Bosco is everything you would ever want in a real estate agent. Smart, personable, energetic, friendly, tireless in his pursuit, of your goal. He is dependable, reliable, and at your beck and call. What more could you want. I would use him again anytime and refer him to anyone. If I could give him more than 5 stars I would.
