I love to shop. Through college I commuted 1 hour everyday, living at home, in order to save money to shop. There is something about wearing new cloths that makes you feel confident, and sexy.
Now that I am married with a family and on a budget you have to be smart when it comes to shopping for cloths. I admit I probably waste too much money getting new things that I have to have, however I am smart about it. I have learned to embrace consignment stores. Once a week I pop into a local consignment store to see the new merchandise.
One of my favorite consignment stores is online, Thred up. I heard about them on Good Morning America and fell in love! I have bought so many cloths from that website, my husband keeps money on his Paypal for me to get stuff as a treat.
Thred up has a great variety of cloths and the website is easy to navigate. If the cloths you receive don’t fit right, you can return them for free.
I buy most of my Lululemon workout cloths on thred up. The gym I go to is the best, however the side of town it is on is really wealthy, most of the women are in really good shape have fake boobies, have the best workout cloths, and wear makeup to workout in. I roll in with my hair a mess, a baby on my hip, bags under my eyes, ready to get sweaty. I don’t make it a priority to buy the newest trendiest workout wear, with thred up I can at least feel a little fancy and look nice while being on a budget. They only accept current almost perfect merchandise so you no whatever you buy wont have stains or tears.
They also have kids cloths. My daughter is always dressed to the 9’s. I only have one baby and she is a girlie girl. She always has a bow in her hair, she puts on necklaces and bracelets and wants her nails done.
On thread up I can find crew cuts (J Crew for kids) at a affordable price, along with a bunch of other great brands. Since kids grow out of stuff, or ruin cloths easy, it is easy to justify buy it.
I highly recommend checking out this website, they also have a app but be careful it can be addicting.
