Wife on a Budget
How many of you out there can relate to an internal desire to shop while having no income at all?
I realize our situation is rare, not many students get married while still both completing their degrees. But hey, we make it work! The hardest part for me is learning how to budget for the first time. It’s no longer my money, but our money – which means capping the amount of shopping I do.
Which is exactly why I started this blog. I love fashion and I love interior design, and even though money plays a big role, it doesn’t have to define your style. Hence, how I became the Wife on a Budget.
So here’s my secret: 1. There are, and there always will be… SALES. Know your store, know the usual discounts, know what your paying for 2. Homegoods, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls are your best friends. I mean it. Forget your childhood friend you met when you were seven. There’s a new kid in town, and they’ve got the best prices you’ll ever see.
I’ve noticed some blogs and instagrammers get really excited about prices that under $100. Well, that’s not my budget. I love shopping for clothing and home, but I don’t own a single top that cost more than $40.
So stick around. I’ll guide you. In between my married life – and you know, building rocket ships and all – I’ll be posting the best of the best sales for those of you who know how hard the struggle is.
