As you may already know, I'm kind of a postcard fanatic. The only kinda-problem is that most of the postcards I send out I secretly wish I were receiving, because they're simply so beautiful. So here's a fun idea for a cheap souvenir: send your future self Paris postcards.

I know you love Paris Cheapskate, but do you wish you could just have a cheapskate to show you around town? Kinda like your very own portable cheapskate guidebook, except alive and warm and witty? Good news: Paris Cheapskate tours are now available, during which you can benefit from my Paris expertise on a variety of topics.
- The "Amelie" Tour of Montmartre
- Best Thrift Stores in the Marais
- Macaron Hunting

(A transcendant experience from last year's Jour du Macaron, the chocolate-foie gras mac at Pierre Hermé)
Okay you guys, I'm trying hard to contain my excitement, but my anticipation for the annual Jour du Macaron is just too awesome to stifle. Thanks to genius (and my favorite macaron maker) Pierre Hermé, every year on the first official day of spring, macaron shops all over Paris celebrate the little pastry by giving them away for (basically) FREE. By (basically) I mean you are required to donate to a charity, but come on. 1) As if that's so bad and 2) You can just give a few coins if you like.

It's an unfathomable thought: a three-course meal in Paris for 6€? A three-course meal anywhere for 6€? It just couldn't be possible! But when heard whispers of the incredible deal available at La Muraille du Phenix, I knew I had to try it for myself. And, it turns out, this may be the cheapest meal in Paris.
