….well maybe not all, but yes; yes, you can have a fashionable wardrobe on a tight budget. I’m not about to give up designer labels and silk fabrics just because I’m on a budget and like living debt-free.
Somewhere along the line, a notion sprung up which was to be frugal, one must look shabby.
Let me tell you some of my ideas on how you can be frugal and look brilliant:
- I paid off my student loans years ago by selling clothing I bought at estate sales and garage sales on eBay. Now places like Poshmark and thredUp are better alternatives. But it’s a great way to make money, while also being able to acquire amazing labels without forking over huge amounts of money. Wear it a time or two, then sell it. You’ve gotten to wear a gorgeous item, for cheap, plus you made money on it in the end by selling it.
- Consignment stores in exquisite neighborhoods allow you to wear beautiful items without spending the formidable prices for the same item at a retail store or online. (Again, I recommend after you’re through wearing it, sell it and often for more than the consignment store was asking for it.)
- Also, the Honey app is free and gathers all the online coupons available while you shop online and notifies you at checkout of the coupons available. You can accept them. It’s a free service and even works on AMAZON! It saved me $153 on my kids’ school clothing alone this fall. Click here for my referral code.
