Today’s money motivation post comes to you from Warren Buffet, one of the top investors and money gurus when it comes to building wealth. “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get” is a profound statement in the area of frugal living. You see, many frugal people get a bad rap as being cheap. However, many us of us frugal mammas (and dads), on the contrary, are smart with our money and way of living.
Are you into style and fashion? Do you follow the latest clothing trends? Your personal style is an awesome form of self-expression.
Fashion and personal style have always been one of my passions. As a girl, I was intrigued when my mother wore a pretty dress or grandma applied her favorite shade of lipstick. They were always so beautiful and inspiring!
With that being said, I don’t like paying high prices for items that will quickly go out of style and sit in my closet until I decide to do a closet purge. (I don’t like paying high prices for anything for that matter.) So when shopping for more stylish items, I have my go-to stores.
I like following fashion trends and looking cute like the next lady; however, I have not always had the money to support this habit. Therefore, I had to become crafty with my shopping. Today, I’m going to share my secrets & suggestions with you. I will describe how to own a stylish wardrobe on a budget.
Frugal Living Fails and Frugal Living Mistakes – Learn from me!!
Money fails and finds…We’ve all had them. There are the times when we wanted to save an extra buck or two but ended up spending an outrageous amount. Saving money isn’t always fun. At times, it is down-right difficult. Not to mention, spending money is more fun, right! I’m with you! However, sticking to a budget, when you are clearly not rich, will help you live a stress-free, happier life.
On the contrary, it is amazing to find money. For example, think of the day you put $10 in your pocket and then put those pants away for the winter. Spring cleaning rolls around and you are $10 richer! Finding extra money is the best feeling.
Yet, coming into money shouldn’t be so arbitrary. Finding concrete ways to save money will help you in the long-run. (Check out my Budgets 2017 – New Year, New Budget Post for help on this.)
