Cheap and Thrifty

I like to call myself the cheapest person ever. Mostly when it comes to clothes, accessories, shoes, etc. I pretty much refuse to buy anything full price. I go to target about 5 times a week just to scan the clearance racks in hopes of finding something amazing.

I usually start to realize that Im crazy when I follow an item from birth (full price) to it's end times (75% off)
For example, I see a beautiful cardigan. My heart starts to pound, I check the price, and say my goodbye. When I notice the item not on the main floor, I scan the clearance racks for it and follow it from 30% -50% and I usually won't buy it until it hits the 75% rack unless i know it won't be there much longer or there is only one of my size left. It pretty much has to be under $10. oh dear i sound like a freak. Same goes for purses at target. Shoes don't usually work to my advantage there but occasionally I will find something. I do this at other stores as well but I only really keep tabs on the clothes at target because they are everywhere!

And then comes the thrift stores. I try to go each friday I get paid to see if I can get lucky and find some pretty pieces. Sometimes I do sometimes I don't.

I never do outfit post's but I thought I would throw one together today so you can see how to dress like a cheap ass such as myself! Hey, im on a budget people. :)
