Fab & Fru San Diego

Sunny Deals For The Finest City By The Sea

San Diego

Steph and I are off to discover the Fab & Fru side of San Diego. This luxe city on the sea is usually not the first thing people think of when they think frugal!  As you may have heard, San Diego is one of the top 10 most expensive U.S. cities to live in!  That’s why we were surprised to learn that San Diego was also voted as one of this year’s Top 5 most frugal cities – meaning that the residents spend less than they earn and have cut back on spending considerably over the past year.  Good for you, San Diego!

We searched this sunny city to find hidden deals and giveaways for locals and vacationers alike, and came up with some sensational Fab & Fru Finds!

La Jolla, CA 92037


Nestled in the stunning coastline just 12 miles north of downtown San Diego, La Jolla’s famous resort community is known for all things fabulous. Dare we find anything remotely frugal? Yes!  There’s no better place to rejuvenate the soul than at SK Sanctuary with this Fab & Fru deal that is too good to be true.

-Spa pedicures here run a wallet whopping $80 for 60 minutes, but we got the inside scoop – you can ask for one of their “sports pedicures” for just $30 you’ll get a Fab pedicure at a much more Fru price!  A perfect way to experience luxury for less.

-Massage Specials:  Wed-Fri after 4 pm get 20% off 1 hour or 90 minute massages and…

- 40% off Thai massage – all the time!  For those of you who have never experienced a Thai massage before, it’s so enjoyable you would pay full price and then some – but what a stress reducer that you don’t have to!
