Happy Frugal Frog Friday!
I know I missed last week’s FFF, but I feel like it has been months since the last one!
As cooler weather has just descended upon Pennsylvania, I have found myself breaking out my boxes of winter clothes that have been in storage for months. However, instead of mindlessly transferring my summer dresses out and hanging up my sweaters, I decided it was time for one of my favorite games: Keep, Consign,or Giveaway.
If the item of clothes was dated and I did not wear it last winter it went directly into the “Giveaway” pile. If it was “like new” and I had not worn it or it was too big, placed it into the “Consignment” pile.
If you have never been to a consignment store you are missing out! It is a wonderful place to buy or sell never-worn, or barely worn clothes, shoes, etc.
“Twice as Nice” is one of the great consignment shops I use. For this store, like many others, you have to schedule an appointment to drop of clothes. I would recommend calling before you visit to check protocol if you are interested in selling some of your clothes.
“Twice as Nice” keeps your clothes for the entire season, and if it sells, you get 50% of the profit. If it does not sell, you can get it back.
Another store I like to use is “The Attic.”
“The Attic” is SUPER trendy and the clothes must be practically brand new. The convenient thing about this store is that they buy the close directly from you. It is nice to have that instant financial gratification! 🙂
This weekend, I hope to make a couple consignment visits!
On a somewhat connected, but not really connected note to Frugal Frog Friday:
I, unexpectedly, got offered a Full-time job!
(I have been working 4 part-time jobs–which is fun but STRESSFUL and does not provide benefits)!
I am incredibly excited, but definitely in a state of shock!
I will now be working at the graduate level which is absolutely thrilling; however, I will still keep one of my part-time jobs that I cannot abandon until June. So, as of right now, I am super employed.
This basically means that I get to loosen the reigns of frugality a bit–I might even go shoe shopping this weekend–YAY!
Frugal Frog Friday will still be a weekly occurrence, but it may be more about saving money and finding deals and less about spending absolutely NO MONEY. 🙂
But back to the important thing….SHOES!
Right now I am contemplating embracing the boot trend.
Should I go for the:
1) High-Heeled Boot
2) Riding Boot:
3) Or stick with my comfort zone (HEELS!)
I do not own a pair of nude heels; however, can you wear nude shoes in the Fall/Winter?!
Do you love shoes? Have you embraced the boot trend? Where is your favorite place to buy shoes?
I love DSW and I think I may be planning a trip there tomorrow!
