It has come to our attention that some people (ahem, MOM) think we have a bit of a "shopping problem".
Why would people think that?
Why do we have to label things?

Well, let's be honest here. We do shop a lot. Whatever. It's what we like to do.
Some people collect rocks.
Some people collect Beanie Babies.
Some people collect those little shot glasses commemorating cities they've visited.
We collect clothes.

But we wanted to set the record straight. 
Yes, we like to shop.
BUT, no, we don't spend a lot of money on clothes.

Instead, we like to think of ourselves as connoisseurs of finding freakin' good deals.
How do we do it, you ask?
1. Thrifting! Yes, it can be a little daunting. And a little smelly. And you always end up feeling like you need to wash your hands, but thrifting is a fun way to find one-of-a-kind pieces for super cheap.
2. Always take advantage of sales: It's incredibly rare that we buy any thing full price ever. Nothing hurts our hearts more than when we buy full-priced items, then come back a few weeks later to see our precious baby 50% off. Not cool. 
3. Sign up for emails: The only people that email us these days are our favorite stores (we're popular). A lot of the time, stores send promotion codes or access to sales exclusively to those on the email list. 
4. Ain't too proud to beg: If you think the store is overcharging you for an item (i.e. an item is supposed to be on sale and they're charging you full price), always have them double check the price. They're usually wrong. 
Also, if there's something wrong with an item, (slight damage, missing button, washable stain) always ask for a price cut. Call us cheap, but why pay full price for something that isn't in ship-shape condition?
Most of the time, it's fixable anyways.
