Recently I was at friend’s house helping her with an organizing project for her house. She remarked that every time she sees me I have a different purse that I sport around in. I said you are exactly right I do have some super cute purses and really nice high-end brand names like Steve Madden, Banana Republic, Nine West, Coach (real), Relic, Fossil, Gap, Le Sport Sac and Bagalini. I am able to have some nice bags and a great selection to choose from ... because I buy them second hand at Savers and My Best Friends Closet store in Algonquin, IL. I find great purses and even brief cases at these stores. Recently, I bought a gorgeous leather Steve Madden purse for $9.99. In fact most of my purses are under 10 bucks. It is buyer beware so make sure when you go to Savers, you look over the purses for any rips or distressed that you wouldn't want. At My Best Friends Closet, they do all that fine detailed looking for you. Their quality and selection are outstanding and the average purse / handbag is $15.00. They do have a designer section for Coach, Luis Vuitton, Mark Jacobs which is awesome and at second hand prices, don't hurt your wallet. That is how this Frugalistas stays on a budget and still can look Fabulous! And when I get bored, because I am fickle like that, I simply can donate it back to Savers and get a $3.00 off Coupon towards my next purchase. If you have any High End Designer Purses consider consigning them to My Best Friends Closet and that way you can make some money. Check out some of my purses. The best part about being a Fabulous Frugalista is that my wallet stays full!
Keep it Frugal, Heather
Got to tell you about this great place to buy and consign furniture and home goods. I went on a field trip there last week and it was awesome. I saw an awesome brand new Lazy Boy sectional for $1200.00 dollars. Wow! Awesome Home décor. I got a brand new tablerunner with tags $5.00 which I had just seen at Target for $12.00. I snagged it up and restyled my buffet for summer. All the décor on the buffet I repurposed from what I have around my house already. I love it! My friend who was with on this field trip and she ended up getting some pre-teen girl decor for her daughters room. It was Paris theme and so inexpensive compared to buying it full price at some other store. Next time Frugalistas, when you get the urge to redecorate or you’re in need of “new” furniture check out:
Your Best Friend's Home
3947 W. Algonquin Rd.
Tuesdays & Wednesday 10 – 6
Friday and Saturday 10-6
It’s worth the trip Frugalistas plus while you’re there, you can check out the related clothing store “My Best Friend's Closet”
Keep it Frugal and remember it pays to buy second hand verses over spending on brand new!
Just got this great tip sent to me by one of my readers Joelle. She shared her insight and great option for Moms who want to sell clothes and buy clothes ! Thanks Joelle for sharing!
Keep it Frugal!
McHenry Mothers and More does a consignment sale twice a year at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. I am not a rummage saler, but I have gone in the past to this sale as a shopper and came back with lots of nice clothes for my kids. This spring, I put items in for sale. This process was slightly more work than just giving the clothes/toys away, but not much, and definitely far less than having a rummage sale. You use their online system to list, print, and tag your items, and then you just drop them off during the designated drop off time the day before the sale. A week later, a check shows up in the mail, and they donate anything that didn't sell, so the hard work is done once you have dropped off your stuff.
