Broke Girls?

It’s the NEW year and being smart about your funds is just as important as sporting the hottest fashion trends out right now. Hmmm… think about it. If you don’t know how to save how are you going to buy those hot shoes for your bestie’s party next month? Your parents are going to start giving you that good ol’ side eye the next time you kindly reach your hand out for more money. So hey, before they even give you the “You need to start being responsible” speech beat them to the punch and watch your account grow! Ok, ok enough of the speech let’s see if you are a Budgetnista or not?

Closet Check!– Yes, I know the feeling of fresh clothes in your closet is somewhat addictive! You can feel yourself wanting to rip off the tags as soon as you pull it out the bag and find the perfect place to debut the new piece to your clothes collection. BUT ask yourself how often do you buy new clothes? And where are your fave stores? Do you give yourself a spending limit before going out? Is your wardrobe a mixture of higher, lower and don’t forget thrift pieces?

Foodie?? You’re telling yourself look, I’m not in 2nd grade anymore and packing lunches are the most annoying thing in the world. I know it seems like all 5 minutes of you preparing a meal the next day is life threatening but its not. How many times do you go to the drive thru after class? Or how many McGriddle wrappers are in the back of your car? Setting aside 10 extra minutes to eat breakfast at home or throwing a snack for after school will save up! You’ve probably spent 10 bucks in just vending machines already…Think about it.

Small Temptations– Well, you know that they say it’s not the big problems that drive you crazy but the small bumps in the road that will drive you up the wall. Well, it’s same for your budget. Is it easy for you to get sidetracked? Do you make a lot of thoughtless purchases? It’s not always the huge purchases that makes your account slowly dwindle, it’s more of your small daily temptations that add up! From the Redbox picks to the Passion Fruit Ice Tea from Starbucks to the new nail polish you snagged at the drugstore. If you really added up a week of your random buys, you just saved up for your prom shoes…Yes, it’s true.

Fun or Funds?!

Group Budget – Ok, so it’s no secret that being a student doesn’t automatically make you rich. So instead of trying to impress your friends with what you can buy just be honest that you want to be mindful on your spending habits.  Creating a budget of what the group wants to spend takes the pressure off of everyone!tumblr_nn0eztPCrp1qm6yoeo1_500

Girls Night In- Sometimes it’s better to just stay in rather than being on the scene. Resetting , chatting + veggin’  out are all perfect ways to chill out and catch up with your besties. Who doesn’t love comfy girl talk?

SWAP over SHOP!- Shopping! Yes, we all wish we had an unlimited amount to spend on new trends each season! Hmmm so instead of shopping you should have a swap out with your friends. You know  your friend’s cute necklace that you’re always gagging over  and your statement ring she raves about …just swap it out. Time to trade!
