While we're stuck blogging about Miss Jewish South Florida and Beyonce Knowles's real estate blunders, thousands of college students around Miami are spending the next three weeks freeloading off their parents and living the dream that is Winter Break.
Unfortunately for many of them, the Bright Futures scholarship money has dwindled dramatically since the start of the semester and several of these co-eds are down to their last few bucks. Lucky for them, though, Crossfade compiles a list of gnarly shit to do each week under $10. Check it after the cut.
