Earlier this year, I moved from Rockville, MD to Arlington, VA. While I moved back to the city life (yay!), the cost of living increased by 10%. *cue emoji sad face*.Which means the necessities like rent and food are more expensive. So I guess my shopping days are over, right?
My bills might have increased, but I can find a way to still shop on a budget.
1 way of doing that is by shopping at thrift, consignment and/or vintage stores. Yes, these pre-loved garments are just as awesome at a discounted price. I’ve been shopping at some of these places lately and not only do I love the clothes, but I love that I still have more money for myself, cha-ching!
I recently purchased this maxi dress by Pins + Needles from Buffalo Exchange for $17. Originally $89.
While there are so many thift and cosignment shops in the DMV area, here are some places you should check out:
