My Favorite Thing (From Goodwill): Ralph Lauren Clutch

I am dying to share my latest accessory score with you, dear readers. I met up with two new thrifty bloggers, Pam and Jen of Frugal DMV, at our Alexandria Goodwill last week to chat about some collaboration.

Back-to-School Fashion (On a Budget!)

On my first day of ninth grade, I learned one of the most important back-to-school shopping lessons…EVER. With my bright pink monogrammed L.L. Bean backpack loaded down with three ring binders and Germ-X, I nervously navigated my way to my homeroom class. Upon taking my seat, I looked up from my map and noticed that […]
