How buying used clothes can save you tons of money

I love buying used clothes. Why? Because I always want new outfits and a good bargain.
I had this North Face sweatshirt for a while and was tired of it, so I sold it and bought a better one :)

I've been following articles by minimalists lately who have 4 pieces of clothing. Ouch! Can I do that? One thing I can do is sell the clothes I am not crazy about. This is my way of decluttering, cleaning and almost renting my clothing items. Sometimes I will purchase clothes, wear them a couple times to determine if I really like them and sell them if I am not in love with them. I know there is someone else out there that will LOVE them! Check out these items I'm selling on Poshmark.

On average I used to buy a couple new outfits each month. This was around $300. That's $3,600 per year. Now, I spend about $50 per week, but make a lot of that back on Poshmark. Yay!

How to have a beautiful Florida wedding for less than $5,000


1. Food: order from the catering menu and have a friend meet the deliverer to setup.

2. Buy a used wedding dress and get it altered. The alterations will cost more than the dress.

3. Hubby can get a nice suit (with tailoring) for under $400.

4. Yeti cups make great groomsmen gifts in the summer in Florida. Ties can be purchased for less than $5 each.

5. Rent a large home for the rehearsal dinner. Most places charge much more per person than it costs to cook for a large group.

6. Have your friends and family help you setup.

7. Order a cake from Sam's club for $25 and have your friends and family bake the other dessert options.

8. Have your hair and make up done at a beauty school. 

But, have a trial done before the big day! A couple of my bridesmaids' hair looked awful.

Like, worse than this scary head...awful.

My hair looked great, thankfully!

9. Borrow your reception dress from a friend.

10. Don't sacrifice something you want for something traditional. You can make your own tradition.

Do you love garage sales AND new clothes?

I do because I can expand my closet at a very low price. One rule I must follow is one in, one out. So,   if I find something great at a garage sale, I sell one of my older items. Check out my Poshmark closet here.

Consignment stores <3

I love consignment stores, but they can have pricey items. 
Shopping in February is great because many stores offer 75% off. Yay! I'm off to get some deals.
