When the season changes, so does the weather, and that means I need a new wardrobe, or at least some new clothes. Sometimes getting a whole new wardrobe and tons of new things from high-end stores can’t happen for various reasons. (Like spending all of my money on one really expensive thing that I don’t even need) But that doesn’t mean you can’t get any new clothes or accessories. You just have to find the right place to buy them.
I went to Buffalo Exchange several days ago. Buffalo Exchange is a store where you can buy, sell, or trade clothing, shoes, and accessories. Most of the items in the store are brand new and the price averages at $15 (£9).
I got the Ella Moss dress I am wearing for $15 (£9) and the purse for $8 (£5). The hat was also $8 (£5). The total was $31 or about £19. £1 under the budget!
You might think that going shopping for a new outfit requires you to spend all of your money, but it doesn’t. Shopping at thrift stores or consignment stores are a great alternative to shopping at a department store, especially if you want something that no one else will have.
