Shop at Thrift Stores
Thrifting has been here for generations and is getting widely popular!
Tip: try thrift shopping in high-end neighbourhoods. sometimes you might find designer items that have been barley used.
Borrow and Trade
On campus there are tons of people and someone always need something done for them! Use your skills if it means a tutor session for a pair of jeans or just borrowing your dorm mates top for a night out!
Fight impulse shopping
With the popularity of online shopping, it is so easy to just click add to cart these days. However, it is best to avoid this! Fast fashion clothes are made in mass production at high speeds to keep up with trends at an affordable price. Then you are left with the quality being poor after a few washes…say no and invest in good quality clothes!!
Use Buy and Sell Apps
In the world of technology humans are connected more than ever! Use apps like the Goat app to find shoes, and Depop or Poshmark for shopping!
