Wait, Don’t Buy That Yet!

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

For many, the end of the year holiday shopping frenzy can override our saner, more thrifty selves. Spending our precious and all too limited time searching online and in stores. Sometimes, as we shop we see things we would like to own and decide to treat ourselves with a gift or two as well. I always shop for Christmas wrapping paper, gift tags, boxes and really nice ornaments the week after Christmas.

How To Update Your Wardrobe For Less

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Shop Your Closet. Shop Seasonally. If you go swimsuit shopping just as the heat starts to set in, you’ll pay for it, as prices generally hit their peak when you need an item most. Take your smartphone with you on your next shopping venture so you can google discounts and search price comparisons in the store. Shop the Discount Chains. Thrift. If the stigma of thrifting gets to you, remember, it’s not “used”, it’s “vintage”.
