HEY GIRL! So you want to start saving money? Well, so do I. This is a topic that I’m still searching for answers to. Being a raised-by-a-single-mom twenty-something –year-old with a considerable amount student debt, it’s easy to feel that little green monster when it comes to things you don’t have (YET!!).
Before I dive in, let me put my guide into proper context. I want to start off by saying how grateful I am to have a roof over my head, food in the fridge and a wonderful family that loves me. This is not by all means supposed to be the type of situation where I constantly nag on about not having the latest “it” bag or why I couldn’t jetset to Cayo Coco in 2012 on reading week. This is about my ever-constant struggle to save money, and tips how to NOT get major FOMO when your insta-feed is blowing up with pics of your friends embarking on their latest journeys, or splurges during YEEZY season.
But hey, we all have to start somewhere right?! I used to be the type that would totally shy away from unnerving subjects like this, but I have gained a pretty keen interest in how to grow my bank as of lately. DON’T WORRY, I won’t be crunching numbers, but instead will be sharing my weekly advice on what I’m doing to make sure I can fund my fashion cravings and next big-girl steps.
So without further ado, I present to you… the lazy fashion girl’s guide to saving money!
