Ten Tips for Shopping on a Budget!

Hey cupcakes! I know a lot of my viewers, and myself, love to go shopping! However, this can get very expensive... Here are some quick tips, so you can still go shopping but spend less money!!! It is a win win! <3 Enjoy!

  1. Make a list of what you already have in your closet - You should know every single piece of clothing that you already own, so you don't accidentally buy it again.
  2. Look in clearance first! - Even though some items may catch your eye, start with clearance and see if you can find a deal. :)
  3. Buy some classic things, not all trendy things - Trends go out of style so think it over before you buy ten pairs of overalls! :P
  4. Go shopping alone - You will make better choices without friends or family pressuring you!
  5. Bring actual cash to spend, not your credit card - This makes you more aware of how much you are spending!
  6. Make a list of what you are looking for - Buy what you need!
  7. Check out discount stores before brand name stores! - Go to Forever 21, Target, etc. before Coach, Guess, etc.
  8. Learn to sew/alter clothes - If you find a cheap piece of clothing that needs only a little alteration, you could do that yourself and save money!
  9. Check out thrift stores - They are super cool and cheap! :)
  10. If you fall in love with something a little pricey, don't purchase it right away - Try to find it online because you will probably be able to find the same piece for a better price! If you can't, make sure you will use the piece before buying it :)

I hope you enjoyed my tips! What are your tips for shopping on a budget? Comment below and follow! <3
