5 Days of Frugal: Day 1

 I was going through my closet the other day, getting rid of mountains of clothes. I stuffed them into trash bags to donate to the Salvation Army. I came across some items that had cost me a pretty penny. I thought, how many times did I even wear this? And now I'm tossing it out. Waste of money. 

Then, I thought, Christmas is right around the corner. Time to start saving for presents. I've got lots of things I want to get my little Baby Scarlett for her first Christmas. So...I decided to give myself a project:  I am going to wear nothing but things purchased from 2nd hand stores or sale items for the next 5 days

 Here are some things I found for way less at Second Hand Stores or on clearance. Of course, I love having nice things. I shop A LOT. But let's face it, even if we are doing pretty good, we're still not rich. There are much more important things that I would like to spend or save my money for. I'm not one for buying overpriced things. I have a few genuine pieces that I throw together with lots of things that I find inexpensive. Dressing nice does NOT have to cost a fortune...Even if you only have $20 to spare, you can still find something that fits your style.

Sweater: Express (Found 2nd Hand)
Layering Tank: American Eagle (Sale)
Layering shirt: Old Navy (Sale)
Leggings: Forever 21 (Sale)
Pearl Owl Earrings: Target (Clearance)


  1. Love the layers. This outfit looks nice a comfy.

  2. What a great project/great idea! I'm tempted to try this. Thanks for the idea.
