A proud bargainista

Proud Bargainista

I’m going to be frank.

I, Allison Victoria, used to be an over spender.

If I saw a dress or a pair of shoes that I wanted, I would buy them. No questions asked. My closet was crammed full of clothes. And if we are really being honest, I didn’t wear half of them.

Then one day, I realized the majority of my hard-earned money was spent on things I really didn’t need. Ok, this little realization may have come when I moved in with my fiance and he so graciously pointed it out. But he was right! I was an over spender and I needed help.

Because I didn’t want to give up my fashion forward ways and I knew my fiance would not approve of my weekend shopping sprees, I decided to get creative. I became a bargainista!

If I found the same clothes I wanted for a fraction of the cost, I would not only save money but I would also have all of the same great finds! I also learned to become more critical of the things I did buy.

I’m going to share all my tricks of the trade with you so that you too can become a bargainista.
