So, I have to admit something: I am a bargain shopper. I know that's not really something to you should be afraid to admit, but I have to come clean. I enjoy shopping at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Ross. Even though the stores can be extremely overwhelming, I found some great deals there! Just the other day I went into TJ Maxx and found the cutest pair of Coach flats. FYI, I'm a size eleven in shoes so to find cute shoes like that in my size is a match made in heaven. I didn't buy them, but if they're still there next time I go, they'll be the first thing I pick up. I also found some cute Ralph Lauren polos! I mean come on, you can't go wrong with getting designer stuff at way discounted prices.
A couple of days ago, I took a trip to TJ Maxx and bought about ten items for $150! You can't tell me that's a great deal! That's way better than just buying one sweater at J. Crew! Plus, I'm a broke college student. I don't have a job and I go to school in New York City. Things are ridiculously overpriced there, so budgeting my money is essential there.
I do have my weaknesses such as Lilly Pulitzer and Lizard Thicket, but I usually only buy stuff there when I reward myself, such as birthdays and Christmas. I definitely learned to stop splurging last year when I saw how much I spent at college. It was not pretty.
I'm not trying to convince anyone to stop how they're spending their money, but don't you think it's a bit ridiculous to pay hundreds of dollars for one item of clothing when you can pay the same price for, say, eight pieces of clothing?
Just some food for thought.
