Being a millennial and growing up in the economy we were raised in, I’m always down to save a buck or two. Don’t get me wrong, I splurge and treat myself, but it seems as if ever since my parents allowed me to buy my own clothes, I’ve always gotten a thrill out of bargain shopping. Sometimes I feel like Mr. Krabs, but I get a kick out of saving some dollars💵 With that being said, every other Saturday is 50% off day Goodwill. The prices at there are already considerable cheap, so when its half off day, it’s bananas🍌
I couldn’t resist! I ran over to the GoodWill across the street from my job and diligently shopped, as I was on a timed break. Here’s what I managed to find:
The total for this haul was a whopping $15.35!! I was pretty impressed considering that I got about 3 outfits. (Grey cargos not pictured). Although the price is right and the clothes are cute… it was a little to eh for me, so I decided to shake it up!
Alright, so I just went with something simple – a quick crop! For the sake of this being a DIY post, YES I took pictures of me cutting it. LOL
After a few snips ✂️ and some cute belts, here’s my finished product:
That’s what I was able to throw together with this haul. I really like thrifting, it gets my creative juices flowing. I like to think about how I can add or alter to the outfit. Usually, the outfits turn out a lot cooler than I expected in my head, and that’s the rewarding aspect of it for me.
