have you ever watched Two Broke Girls? well if you haven't its based on two (yes, broke) girls living in Brooklyn, trying to make rent each month by waitressing but still enjoy an occasional bargain at the Salvation Army.
I've never been to big on shopping at the Salvation Army or at the many 'vintage' shops New York has to offer but if u have time, you can find some good designer or consignment deals.
New York is crazy expensive (unlimited metro card runs a steep $110 each month) but when you walk by the bright END OF THE SEASON, SALE, CLEARANCE, or STORE CLOSING signs, you can't help yourself! so i've been making the rounds at the $5 H&M sales, 60% off Gap sales, and 30% off Aldo sales! and by making the rounds i mean: selecting pieces, debating the 30 person fitting room line, feeling the guilt trip and run out. hey! i'm no longer a recessionista, i'm just another broke girl with her first job looking for a $5-$15 deal that won't hurt my savings. i've actually been wearing my Gap slim crop pants at least 3 times a week in these past 2 months. besides the fact that i love them. i need to save struggling through the desperate need of at least some easy to dress tops for work! ASAP!
