My inspiration for this blog comes from my love of fashion and my life of living on a budget. I live on a budget in every aspect of my life and I want to share how I have found ways to live a decent life with spending little money. From clothes shopping to grocery shopping to entertainment to vacations, I’ve found ways to save money.
The other day I was watching the show Extreme Cheapskate on TLC. The show is about people who are extremely cheap and how they have found ways to save money. One lady bought expired food and made her own reusable toilet paper. Another lady looked for food in the garbage cans outside of upscale grocery stores and washed her clothes while she showered. There were people peeing in jars, using yogurt cups as glasses to drink from, making condiments from restaurants and digging through dumpsters for furniture. I was sitting there watching this thinking, “that’s beyond cheap, that’s just weird”. These people think that they’re saving so much money, but they’re going about it all wrong. I might be tight with money, but I’m not going to stop buying toilet paper to save a few bucks.
