Ballin’ on a Budget

I am so ecstatic about the MOUNDS of money I saved myself clothing shopping last week. Somehow, now that i’m an “adult” and actually have to spend my own money and not the governments–student loan reimbursement I miss you dearly– I have decided that I need to be frugal.

One thing that I have learned is that you should never buy anything full price. Buying something on sale not only saves you money- but it also gives you a shoppers’ high. The key is to look at the end of the season. You may not get to wear it for awhile, but once the weather changes– you’ll have something brand new hanging in your closet that hardly cost you anything.The second lesson I have learned is that brand name really doesn’t matter. Sure, the quality may not be quite as good with non-name brand stuff, but it’s usually pretty dang close and no one cares WHO you are wearing as long as it looks cute on YOU. Anyway, these are the steals I found and they’re too good not to share:

This sweater cost $131.50.



I found one that is almost identical for $9.98 at Burlington Coat Factory.

Winter Boots

$99.95 for something you can wear 5 times a year? Nah.


Found these at Old Navy for $35. Now I just need some snow!

Grey Skinny Jeans

Love, love, love, these grey skinny jeans and I have been dying to get some.



I found a similar pair at Old Navy for $8.99. (btw, that shirt is from Burlington Coat Factory and was only $10 too.)

Hunt for deals and you will find them! Even if I don’t get to wear my boots this winter, which is highly unlikely since I live in Kansas and there could possibly be a blizzard in July, I can wear them next year. Saving the $70 is worth that to me. In my opinion, having style and finding bargains is what makes you fashionable, not the label –or the price tag that comes on the clothing.

    Even though I know you can pull off the look of those boots, they may need some fake “rabbit” fur at the top when you pull them out to wear during the next blizzard.
