Create Your Dream Closet

The SITS Girls have a post that gives a roadmap on what you (and I) need to do to create a “dream closet.” The best advice? “You should have nothing in your closet that is not currently wearable.” Get rid of anything that you can’t wear right now. Don’t keep it because you’re going to fit into it someday. Don’t keep it because of sentiment.

Yellowberry: Changing the Bra Industry

Have you heard of Yellowberry? Teen entrepreneur Megan Grassell is just graduating high school, but she’s already started her own company … and made waves in the process. Her company Yellowberry creates “age-appropriate” bras for teen girls. And by that I mean bras that are pretty and comfortable without being, well, skanky.

Good for her. She’s fundraising now now through Kickstarter. We wish her luck.

Check out Lane Bryant’s new ad campaign

Have you checked out Lane Bryant’s new advertising campaign? It’s the best “plus” ad I’ve seen in a while, especially since it’s for lingerie. These women look like women I’d seen in real life… and I write that as a frequent shopper of that store.

The video features Ashley Graham, Marquita Pring, Candice Huffine, Victoria Lee, Justine Legault, and Elly Mayday.

Credit card tips to help keep your budget on your next shopping trip

I love a good shopping trip as much as the next person, but I know that buying unexpected items for your wardrobe can quickly torpedo your budget. An easy fix for this is to make sure that you don’t make it too easy for you to over-indulge.

Don’t take your credit with you when you’re shopping, advises Money Crashers. Try an envelope method, where you take an envelope with the exact amount you have budgeted. If you have leftover, you bring that with you next time. If you run out, then you just stop spending.

Don’t store your credit card info in your browser. You know you do it; your browser automatically populates all the fields of your credit card info, including the number. It does that because you told it to, so it would be easier to buy things online (that extra two minutes to find the credit card and fill out the info is just annoying, right?). However, if you force yourself to have to go look for the card, you may actually re-evaluate the purchase. Go ahead and tell your browser to forget all the form fields it has stored. And don’t save it again.

Do you have some tips to add? Budgeting tips are always welcome.
