So here we go!
Two of my children and I went to the renaissance festival this weekend. It was faboo weather and the camping was great. But it got me thinking about the second part of this blog's title. I am someone who refuses to pay full price for anything. What others pay upward of $700 for I payed less than $7 for. Do the math people. Really? Even if you have the money to spend why would you? Let me teach you how I roll when it comes to money.
I have a passion for very nice things. Sucky fact: very very nice equals very very expensive. Right? Never I say. Down with full price, up with my designer wardrobe and accessories. As long as I (and you too) are willing to put the most minimal effort into perfecting what others have made a bit less desirable. Then you have a chance of very very nice.
When I say that I don't pay full price for anything I mean anything. Just because something is at a Goodwill store doesn't mean you can't get better and cheaper.
Tip number one: set your limits and stick to it.
Figure out the cap you are willing to pay for every different item and no matter what stick to it. I refrefuse to pay over $10-15 for jeans. And I mean new ones too. Used your looking at $1or $2. Khols is one of the best places for new, designer, and 90% off. My 13 year old had $100 for school clothes and with thay we got him 5 pairs of pants, four pairs of shorts, 2 pairs of leather boots, 2 jackets, and over 13 shirts
Ya what can I say I'm really really good.
So there's my first tip. Look back for more on all that sparkles for pennies.
