In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: How you can actually save money by spending more on clothes

1. BOGO!!!

All jokes aside, I loved this article about how you can actually save money by spending more on quality clothes. I 100% agree with this stance because all of the crappy not-so-great pieces in my wardrobe have not lasted as long as my truly great designer pieces.

2. Shorties

I own a long pair of rainboots by Aigle called Miss Juliette (they look clean and chic), but I have been pondering a shorter pair of rainboots for short errands, but also just when the ground is wet but it isn’t raining. I came across these super comfortable Jeffrey Campbell ones which are super reasonably priced¬† which would fit the bill.

3. Stressed

It is definitely okay… that you feel angry, frustrated and VERY MUCH NOT OKAY right now, even though you know you are ‘privileged’, ‘lucky’ and ‘blessed’. It’s okay. I’m with you.

4. Ballooned

I am a HUGE FAN of balloon, bishop sleeves but I know they can be a bit much for some of you, so I found this $30 dress from Nordstrom Rack which looks stylish, chic, with a subtle hint of balloon sleeves. Not too much. I also clearly love this sheath midi dress because of the bright magenta colour too.

5. Career Advice

Right now, stock up on watching the webinars from Career Contessa because they’re all free.

6. Play Green

My son has been hassling me for a fire truck but I have been loathe to buy something that is a NEW toy right, but nothing is open, so I managed to soothe my guilt by buying RECYCLED plastic toys from Green Toys and I couldn’t be happier.

7. Safety First

My partner has been going insane being careful with everything coming into the home, this is part of what he has been doing (including quarantining things.)

8. Simplicity, Itself

Do you know how hard it is to find a simple open cardigan that isn’t too thick, too thin, etc? THIS IS IT, an open front cardigan sweater. It comes in a billion different colours too.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    I’m a big fan of buy once, buy well. My fast fashion pieces have all been disappointing. I’ve been leaving packages in the garage and washing down the groceries. My germophobia seems to be serving me well during this whole thing. Stay safe!

      My partner is super germaphobic so .. this has kicked into high gear. It makes me tired just thinking about it.
