Where I Shop

Always look for a deal.

So  I've listed some of the places I personally like to shop. I 100% think you can get some great clothes without spending a lot of money. 

1. TJMaxx & Marshalls 

I worked at TJMaxx for years in undergrad and they get a lot fo cute things in for usually under $20-25.

2. The Goodwill 

If you feel weird about wearing someone else's discarded clothes, just wash them really well. The Goodwill always has some great stuff but you have to be patient. I have found things from LOFT, Vince Camuto, Tobi, American Eagle, and so many more brands for half the cost.  

3. The Typical Places 

Forever 21, H&M, Charlotte Russe, Etc.

are places that are trendy and a lot of the time inexpensive. I also occasionally shop at

department stores. 

 

You can make it look expensive.

Shopping Tricks & Tips

I love to shop. I believe retail therapy can do wonders. But it may not necessarily be the best thing for your wallet. These are some of the ways I like shop without spending too much money (student loan life).    

4. Online Shopping

Shopping my favorite stores online is always a way to save money. You can use promo codes and get freebies too. I never shop Sephora in store.

Zaful, Romwe, Pretty Little Things, & Amazon are great places to find cheap things, granted the quality may not be the best but for the cost I feel

its justified. 

 

Poshmark & Thredup are great places to get new or gently worn things and sell yours! 

 

 

I personally feel like I can find a lot of things regardless of what store as long I know my style and what I like. 

Ebates 

Ebates is a free loyalty membership site that connects people to big name brands, and give you money back for shopping. While this seems too good to be true it actually does work. I've totaled $147 cash back. After you accumulate a certain amount, you can either get a check or receive your cash back on pay-pal. 

Add Ebates to your browser to never miss a deal!

They also have the latest promo codes for a lot of sites. (Go check out their Spehora promo codes!)

Poshmark

Poshmark is an app/online site where you can sell your stuff and buy other peoples stuff. Its like shopping in other peoples closets and boutiques.

 

Its so easy to take pictures, set your price, and sell. Poshmark handles all the shipping labels and its free to package things as well.  

I have bought plenty of things that were new with tags. They have everything from Kate Spade, Gucci, Free People, Forever 21, etc. 

Just be sure to talk to whoever you're selling to/buying from. Make sure things are authentic.
