Look Good for Less | 10 Budget Shopping Tips

Alpha M. Project
Most of us want to look good, but keeping your wardrobe looking good and fresh can be expensive. You should never go into debt to buy something you want 'right now'. Aaron Marino of alpha m. covers how to look good for less. Stick to basics, timeless, and classics.
  1. Discount rack - pick through the rack
  2. Outlet stores - deeper discount than the mall
  3. Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Nordstrom Rack, Ross - great stuff at great price but you have to hunt and pick
  4. Daily deal sites on the web - you have to be creative and think outside of the box
  5. Mailing list for favorite store - the deals aren't found at the store
  6. Second-hand stores- thrift stores like Plato's Closet. Alpha gives a story about his youth where he didn't spend a lot to look great.
  7. Ebay - great to find incredible deals
  8. Lower price point stores - JCPenney, Old Navy, H&M, Forever 21, Target
  9. DIY - modify, create, experiment
  10. Shop smart - stay away from trendy items
